Some of our staff put their best foot forward as part in the third annual Mass Health Walk today (Monday 14 May).
They set off from the Civic Offices to begin a walk around Borehamwood as part of Hertfordshire County Council’s Countryside and Rights of Way Service's new record attempt for the greatest number of health walkers out walking across the county.
Councillor Caroline Clapper, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Culture and Health, said: “I'm so pleased some Hertsmere staff were able to get outside for a health walk to join the Mass Health Walk on such a glorious day!
“We’re supporting Hertfordshire’s Year of Physical Activity and National Walking Month, so I am delighted staff were able to get involved and get active.”
The route incorporated the Studio Way Woodland Trail and took officers around half an hour to walk.
“People can get involved with health walks throughout the year with the Hertfordshire Health Walks initiative, which offers over 60 walks per week across the county. This helps residents to meet the target of 150 minutes exercise per week as recommended by the UK’s Chief Medical Officers. The walks are free, local, short and led by trained volunteers. So, why not join a walk near you!” added Cllr Clapper.
