Getting in the Get Walking Week spirit

As part of Get Walking Week, Ramblers staff headed out on a celebration walk around 'Hidden Vauxhall' – a route developed by resident Ramblers walking expert Des de Moor for Ramblers Routes, our online library of high quality walking routes.

We were joined by employees from Macmillan Cancer Support and other charities from our building for the 45-minute walk taking in some of lesser-known delights of Vauxhall such as Bonnington Square and its Pleasure Garden, Harleyford Road Community Gardens, Spring Gardens and Vauxhall City Farm.

"The weather was a little blustery but all of the 25 people who came along on the walk enjoyed having the excuse to leave their desks and get some exercise during their lunch break" says Walk Leader Michelle Roberts.

Take a look at some pictures from the walk or find out more about Get Walking Week and how you can get involved from 4-11 May.
