VALE residents are being urged to get more active as part of a new national fitness campaign.
The Active 10 campaign is encouraging people across the country to go on a brisk 10 minute walk every day to improve their health.
Experts have found a 10 minute walk everyday can boost energy levels and can help people with lower back pain and those who are at risk of high blood pressure.
Regular exercise has also been found to reduce the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Coun John Smith, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Health and Well-being, said: “We want everyone in Worcestershire to be healthier, live longer, have a better quality of life and remain independent for as long as possible.
“I am signing up to Active10 this summer. I know that regular exercise will improve my health and I want other people in the county to join me. It’s just 10 minutes of exercise a day. We can all find time for that within our busy lives.”
