Get active in Cranbrook with Move a Mile a Day campaign
PUBLISHED: 06:55 11 March 2018
Cranbrook residents are being encouraged to get active next week by taking part in ‘Move A Mile A Day’.
The campaign – launched by Active Devon and Devon County Council, supported by Cranbrook Town Council – is part of Cranbrook’s ‘Healthy New Town’ status.
Residents who sign up for the challenge will be making a one-mile journey every day next week, whether they are walking, jogging, cycling or scooting. They’ll be showing how easy it is to ‘move more’.
The campaign runs from Monday, March 12, to Sunday, March 18. Those who complete the challenge can receive a free ‘Move a Mile a Day’ T-shirt.
Active Devon walk leaders, Country Park ranger Emma Jones and Charlotte Stokes, are inviting residents to take part in an organised walk, which they will be running daily at 3.30pm from the Cranbrook Education Campus and St Martin’s School.
Emma will also be leading a walk around Cranbrook’s Country Park from 10am to noon, on Saturday, March 17, from the Younghayes Centre.
Councillor Roger Croad, Devon County Council cabinet member for public health, said: “It’s great to see initiatives like ‘Move a Mile a Day’ taking place in Cranbrook. We can all benefit from being more active; just ten minutes of physical activity a day can really better our overall health, and this event will help show people how easy getting moving can be.”
