LEDBURY residents wanting to get out and have some fun playing rugby are being invited to a new walking rugby team.

Ledbury Rugby Club is running the sessions to help elderly residents tackle the loneliness and isolation brought on by the pandemic.

The sessions are free of charge and fully in-line with covid safety rules.

A spokesman said: "What we have really noticed is that around the town there is not as much going on for older people.

"We are looking at both the physical and mental benefits of sport because just being out in the fresh air is so important for people."
