Walk eighty miles in May !

Published

on

walkingPEOPLE in Wales are being challenged to walk 80 miles during the month of May as part of Ramblers Cymru’s Big Welsh Walk.
Walking gives the whole body a gentle workout, burning calories, toning the figure and helping people to shake off those extra pounds. The Big Welsh Walk Challenge is a great way to get active.
Ramblers Cymru director, Angela Charlton said: “It’s all too easy for fitness fads to fall by the wayside, but walking is one activity that’s really easy to stick to. By making small changes to your daily lifestyle you can easily build walking into your everyday routine. You may be surprised by how soon you notice the difference. To help people kick-start their summer fitness drive, we’re challenging them to walk 80 miles during the month of May as part of our Big Welsh Walk Challenge. Although that may sound like a lot, every step counts, so even walking from your sofa to the kitchen will count.”
To take part in the challenge, sign up to the Wales Pedometer Challenge website (www. walespedometerchallenge.org.uk) for free and pick the Big Welsh Walk challenge.
Start logging your steps, either by using a pedometer, an app or by estimating your steps using a simple calculation to see how close you are to reaching your goal. The Big Welsh Walk challenge is part of Ramblers Cymru’s Big Welsh Walk, which encourages people to step out and get walking during May.
Anyone who successfully completes the Big Welsh Walk Challenge will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win walking prizes.
Angela added: “The Big Welsh Walk Challenge is the perfect way to start your walking workout. By completing the challenge and walking 80 miles you’ll have burned 8,000* calories, the equivalent of almost 100 chocolate biscuits!”
Ramblers Cymru and partners will also be leading plenty of free walks during the month of May to suit all ages and abilities. From nature walks to family-fun coastal wanders, the Big Welsh Walk has something for everyone to enjoy.

Published

on

PEMBROKESHIRE COAST NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY’S long-running visitor newspaper Coast to Coast was one of the gold winners at the recent CIPR Cymru Wales PRide Awards.

The free annual visitor newspaper picked up the award for Best Publication at an online ceremony hosted by broadcaster Jason Mohammad, having last won the award in 2014.

National Park Authority Communications and Marketing Manager Marie Edwards said: “We are delighted that Coast to Coast has been recognised once again alongside so many other great entries and winners from the private and public sectors.

“Hundreds of thousands of copies are picked up across Pembrokeshire and beyond each year, helping people to learn more about the National Park and enjoy their visit.

“We would like to thank all the readers, stockists and advertisers for their ongoing support as we prepare to publish the 40th edition in 2022.”

In assessing the Coast to Coast entry, the judges felt there was “a very clear brief for Coast to Coast, with well thought through targets. The entry demonstrated a strong alignment to the organisational goals as well as importantly, giving staff the opportunity to contribute.

“Ultimately this approach led to excellent metrics in the evaluation and fantastic feedback from customers, which the judges were particularly impressed with.”

National Park Authority Chairman Cllr Paul Harries added: “The team should be extremely proud to have won another gold at these prestigious awards, which follows on from an incredibly successful few years despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and emphasises the high calibre of officers we have working for the Authority.

“The team works tirelessly to promote the National Park and the Authority in so many different ways, including the ever popular Coast to Coast, which continues to go from strength to strength.”
