EXERCISE: Walking has its benefits

I am very encouraged to see the latest statistics from the Active People Survey 8, which shows that the number of residents walking for at least ten minutes, five times a week has increased in the north east by two per cent over the last year.

It is important to create opportunities for people living in the north east to walk more in their local towns and cities as a mode of transport to help improve the health, economy and environment around us.
