Lighten up the lockdown

We're pulling together top tips from the district’s experts in a campaign to help lighten up the lockdown.

As Ryedale heads into another week of the second national lockdown, a series of short videos will be shared here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages (@RyedaleDC) 

Local leaders from sport, the arts and the food and drink sector have filmed their top tips to help you exercise, learn something new, or hone your skills.

It’s our priority throughout this pandemic to support lives and livelihoods, including your health and wellbeing. We have launched this campaign to help lighten things up and focus on the positives that Ryedale can offer.

We'll add videos to each section on a weekly basis.

Thanks so much to all of the organisations involved in this campaign. Your help is very much appreciated. If you'd like to get involved, please get in touch.
