Colchester walk to work Facebook group goes international

People have been dropping in on the newly formed and yet to be promoted Facebook Group.

Local resident Beverly Davies says "I walk to work every day. Probably a good job that I work from home then! :-)"· (But I know she does lots of her work outdoors on foot!!!!)

And Czech Jana Starkova, who studied one summer at Colchester English Study Centre in Lexden Road, says of our project "Perfect! Colchester is a good place for walking." Here's a picture from her, of the snow in Prague.

Don't wait for the promotion of our "Colchester walk to work" facebook group. Join now and say you belonged before it was famous.

the adventure starts on your doorstep

Walking adventures don't have to be that once-in-a-lifetime trip. You can start your adventure today, from your own doorstep. What's great about walking is that you don't need to be in a special place, have special equipment, or find lots of time. You can do it from home, in ordinary clothes, and use it for some of your daily trips.

Whether it's a backpacking trip in the Scottish Highlands, or you're just popping to the corner shop, there's always something to see. More than most other interests, walking can fit in seamlessly with your "normal" life.

Why "COLCHESTER WALK TO WORK"? It's a project launched in 2010 to encourage people to take up walking in Colchester, as part of their daily life. Come and join us on our journey. Fancy boots not necessary.
