  • Step through the Walking plan with us

    14 days ago

    Our first two Walkshops covered approximately 7km and clocked up 11,000 steps in the process.

    Participants had the opportunity to talk with the project manager about the draft plan as they walked local streets.

    Why not register to attend one of four remaining Walkshops we're hosting over the next couple of weeks.
