Walk4Life visits artists' homes
Published: Wednesday 20th October 10
The Walk4Life team organised a walk around artists' homes during the recent Artists’ Open House event.
The day gave people a chance to get some exercise and admire the work of local artists. Open House is an event organised by the council's Arts Team in which artists display their work in their own homes.
Walk4Life is a council and NHS Wandsworth scheme which gives people the chance to go on free guided walks around the borough.
The walks are led by trained volunteers who can advise and guide people on how to build up their physical activity at a pace that suits them.
The Walk4Life team has also been touring the borough's supermarkets with a step counter to show how easy it is to reach the recommended 10,000 steps a day. Customers who took part were entered into a draw. The winners' names can now be viewed at www.wandworth.gov.uk/change4life.
The picture shows artist Chito Salarza-Grant with people on the guided walk.
