KCC supporting National Walking Month

Kent County CouncilMay is National Walking Month and Kent County Council is joining forces to get people pounding the pavements.

Joining up with Living Streets, a charity that promotes walking, the #Try20 campaign aims to get as many people out and about throughout May.

From May 7-14, Explore Kent, in partnership with Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust Health Improvement team, will be promoting Kent Walking Week. http://explorekent.org/walking-for-health/

On Saturday, May 7 there will be a walk in Margate starting at the Yamas Cafe at the top of Margate High Street.

Health Walks are held right across the county in Ashford, Canterbury, Faversham, Sittingbourne, Sheppey, Dover, Deal, Folkestone, Hythe, Margate, Ramsgate, Broadstairs, New Romney, Tenterden, Whitstable, Sandwich and some villages.

Explore Kent will be encouraging people to get out walking on Twitter using the hashtag #Try20 and #GetKentWalking.

They want to hear from people on how far they’re going to walk and Explore Kent will be doing the #try20 as a team and posting photos to encourage people to do the same.
