We were delighted to welcome over 60 people who are responsible for walking recruitment, to our Paths for All 'Recruiting Walkers' day at Norton Park, Edinburgh on 21st February 2013.

It was a lively day with Strength and Balance demonstrations from Barbara McConnell of Step Forth, presentations from Dr. Ailsa Niven and Nicky Laing from the University of Edinburgh and Dr. Graham Brennan of the University of Strathclyde, and a showcase of the ALISS resource from Lesley Roome. In addition to having these fantastic people, our Senior Development Officer Lindsay Gray gave details of our Strength and Balance resource, Development Officer, Colin Ward provided details about mapping walks, and Operations Manager, Frances Bain introduced the 'Walk With Me' campaign.
