First Prize : Sandhurst Health Walks!!!
Bracknell Forest Council's Public Health Team
has considered the nominations it received
for its "Self Care Reward".
Results as follows:
1st prize £125 - Sandhurst Health Walks
2nd prize £75 - Riot Squad
3rd prize £50 - Bracknell Macular Group
Welcome additional funding of course. But more importantly it's recognition that we are doing something useful and doing it well.
That applies to our Walk Team of volunteers and of course the walkers who make it all worthwhile and a joy to participate.
Oh and thanks Bracknell Forest Borough Council !
We have now reached our sixth year and the walks have continued through wind, rain and sun.
We have had new walkers and new leaders, a sure sign that Walking for Health is working and has increased in popularity.
Back in 2015 we had 130 registered walkers and had collectively walked 5,000 miles, which is the equivalent of walking the length of South America or the coastline of Britain.
The following years saw steady growth and at the beginning of 2019 we had 250 registered walkers. Typically in the range of 10 to 50 walkers attend the walks (depending on day of the week and the weather).
Thank you to all the walk leaders, walk assistants and, of course, all the walkers.
