The beauty of walking is that it can be fitted into your daily routine. It's free, saves on petrol or bus fares and is better for the planet.
Half of all journeys in the UK are under two miles. Why not swap some of your short journeys for a walk. You will feel much better for it and save money too.
Give your children a good start in life and teach them walking as the preferred method of travelling to and from school.
Even young children can walk to school as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult. The Walking School Bus is the ideal way for parents to share the work and provides an enjoyable and carbon friendly journey to school for all concerned.
As well as being a free form of transport, walking in it's own right is an enjoyable and healthy exercise. Many organisations exist to promote walking as a form of recreation and social interaction.
There are many walking organisations in operation, please see the Useful Websites section to view them.
