Walk at Work Week 2019
'Day 5! What a fabulous week it has been for team #happyfeet.
We have explored different options for walking in and around the workplace.
Enjoyed the health benefits of getting up from our desks during the day and made
the most of the beautiful weather.
It may be over but has given us inspiration to continue keeping up our steps at work'
