On Tuesday, I attended an event hosted by the Ramblers to share ideas on what politicians can do to help encourage more people to take up walking.
As well as being one of the few family activities that won’t cost you a penny walking is a great way of encouraging greater mental and physical wellbeing, and appreciation of our beautiful natural environment.
The Ramblers - who have a very active local group here in Tameside - feel that for walking to succeed as a popular leisure activity - Government needs to be active in promoting active, healthier lives, and protecting the paths and walkways that people use to enjoy Britain’s green spaces.
So, in that spirit, I wanted to take the opportunity to promote the idea, and point people in the direction of the local Ramblers group. If you want to find out more about what the Ramblers do in Tameside, you can visit their website here.
