LochPower at Forth Valley
Professor Nanette Mutrie – together with Forest & Land Scotland, NHS Forth Valley, Paths for All Maggies’ and Forth Environment Link – has been motivating Forth Valley Royal Hospital staff, patients and visitors to use the green spaces at Fort Valley Loch in Labert to benefit their health and wellbeing. Nanette’s signs and messages encourage walkers to pause for a few moments and do some, or all, of the 9 highlighted strength and balance exercises as well as stressing the benefits of doing simple strength and balance exercises at least twice a week.
