Walking works to improve health

The north Northumberland Health Walks is calling for people to join them for a walk after the launch of Walking Works, a report by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Supported by Public Health England, this new report demonstrates that walking is the solution to getting the nation active, and shows how England’s largest network of health walk schemes, Walking for Health, is already changing people’s lives.

Jon Monks, health walks coordinator for North Northumberland Health Walks, said: “It’s wonderful to read how much walking can do to help people live healthier and happier lives and how schemes like ours across the country are helping people get more active.”
