I am officially a volunteer Walk Organiser as I completed the Heart Foundation Walking volunteer Walk Organiser online training. This is the first step in forming my workplace walking group at the Operations Centre in the Industrial Area. If we can have a walking group, I think you can just about do it anywhere. I was a member of the walking group at our Administration Building and thought that I could just replicate this at the new worksite. We are more isolated, with no local shops but some staff just want to get outside and walk as they sit at their desks all day.
I have called it ROC as I have noticed some of the staff from Roads have been walking during their lunch break now and then despite the area being fairly unwelcoming. There are few trees and few paths. We will walk together and explore the local area. There are two industrial area cafes nearby and some others a bit further away. Currently few people walk in the area. We will try and change that. There will be safety in numbers if we walk together. We are more visible to others and company is always welcome. We may even be able to problem solve as we walk and improve some of the paths in the area.
