Ramblers Get Walking Website up for an Award (28/10/10)

Our Get Walking Keep Walking website - - has been
nominated for a top award by the publishing industry trade body. This
recognition is well deserved. Since being launched in January, nearly
33,000 people have registered for a Get Walking Pack. We've recently
launched an online version of the pack called 'My Get Walking' on the
website, and nearly 1500 people have registered on this in just six

Get Walking Keep Walking is a Ramblers programme to encourage people
who could do with taking up more exercise to give walking a go. It's
funded entirely by the Big Lottery Fund and RHCT (with match funding
from local authorities), and also covers a proportion of our overheads
too. As well as introducing new people to walking, it's also helping
the Ramblers develop different ways of communicating with people.
We're learning a lot from it, and that's helping local groups as well
as centrally.

Well done to all the volunteers (and there are many) and the staff
involved in Get Walking Keep Walking.
