An article in The Times  explains some of the findings of a study by Harvard Medical School Professor I-Min Lee about the links between physical activity and life expectancy. Read the article from The Times here: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/health/news/article3592275.ece  and also another from the Daily Mail about the research here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2228939/The-secret-long-life-Walk-2-5-hours-week-extend-SEVEN-years.html

Countryside walks made it into the top 50 things that make us happy. Walking in the countryside made it in at number 25, ahead of eating chocolate, eating cake and the smell of freshly baked bread.

Get Wiltshire Walking has been granted the Inspire Mark; the badge of the London 2012 Inspire Programme. This is the first time the Olympic and Paralympic Games Committee has sanctioned the use of a Games mark for non-commercial partners running projects to benefit local people and communities. Being part of the Inspire programme is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Seb Coe, Chair, London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games said: “The Inspire programme is ensuring the legacy of the 2012 Games starts now as projects like Get Wiltshire Walking are enabling people in Wiltshire to make positive life changes”
