Staff from Hertsmere Borough Council took part in the third annual mass health walk earlier this week.

The group set off from the civic offices in Borehamwood on Monday as part of the county council's record attempt for the greatest number of health walkers out stretching their legs.

The 30 minute walk took the strollers along the Studio Way woodland trail.

Cllr Caroline Clapper, responsible 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.”

“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!”
