September is World Alzheimer’s Month and Exeter Dementia Action Alliance (EDAA) and Jo Earlam, a local Dementia Carer, are launching a new wellbeing project for the city of Exeter. Exeter COSY routes (Circle of Somewhere Yours) is a 26.2-mile (marathon) route made up of 8 smaller routes around Exeter that offers something different from the usual busy parks and public spaces.
The idea of creating a circular route embracing the city was conceived to mark the community caring and awareness raising role of the alliance, which earlier this year marked its fifth anniversary. These local walking routes provide a new option for people to get outside and exercise at a time when it has never been more important.
