National Walking Month runs throughout May and Access Lincoln is shouting about the benefits of introducing walking into your daily routine.

The team will be in Lincoln’s Cornhill tomorrow (1 May) encouraging people to leave the car at home and use alternative forms of transport – such as walking, cycling and the bus.

They’ll be offering advice on the different travel choices available and how they can help you save time and money, lead healthier lifestyles and protect our environment.

Alison Mackfall, Access Lincoln project co-ordinator, said: “Walking is often the best option for short journeys, and in a busy city can often get you where you need to be quicker than driving. Plus there’s no need to pay for fuel or parking, so it saves you money too.

“On top of that, making walking a part of your everyday routine will leave you feeling fitter, healthier and brighter, and it’s a great way to de-stress.

“There are some fantastic walking trails around the city, which you can enjoy with your family and friends, letting you combine exercise with a catch up.

“And later in the month, we’ll be launching a lunchtime walking group, giving you an opportunity to meet new people and socialise. So make sure you make the most of the summer months, and put your best foot forward.”
