In September we held our first 'company walk', which was an idea to bring people together outside of work, we even said bring your partners and dogs and off we went to Buttermere in the Lake District.

Well, we had a great day and decided that we would get together at least once a month.  On Saturday, 13th October, a slightly bigger group set off to the small fishing village of Craster (Northumberland) to walk the 6 mile route around Dunstanburgh Castle and, well it rained!!!!!  For those who didn't have a dog, they borrowed one (it has to be said dogs are optional).

We thought you would like to see a little video of our day as we would like to encourage more companies to recognise the benefits of promoting health and wellbeing at work for their employees and walking is a great way to start!

In fact, experts agree, walking is a low impact physical exercise that most people can take part in and is extremely good for you.  Walking helps to improve mood and positively increases feelings of calm and wellbeing, fosters creativity, enables a change of scene and an escape from everyday life.

The challenge is to keep it going, we'll share our adventures with you over the coming months; you never know what the next challenge will be!
