Thank you to everyone who took part in our Active 10 travel challenge in September and October. We are still collecting the figures for the total number of participants, but it is already looking like a hugely successful travel challenge, with lots of people across south Essex adding a brisk 10-minute walk to their daily journeys. The travel challenge will be back earlier next year, and we hope lots more people will take part.
In the meantime, do continue to keep up with the brisk walks throughout winter. A brisk walk on a cold day can be very refreshing! You can still use the Active 10 app to track your progress, and keep you healthy. Make sure you’re prepared for the temperamental British weather by wearing layers, waterproof shoes, and a jacket with a hood. Carrying an umbrella is also a good idea!
