Business people are being encouraged to ditch the car and walk to work next week.

And leading the way is this team of energetic workers from Hemel One in Boundary Way, Hemel Hempstead.

Employees based on the Maylands Business Park are being urged to pound the pavement under the initiative Maylands on the Move as part of Walk to Work Week, running from May 13 to 17.

Participants will record miles walked, calories burned and carbon saved to see who is the top walking workplace.

The Maylands group has promised a donation to Dacorum Mayor Bert Chapman’s charity – Rennie Grove Hospice Care – and will double it if the distance travelled reaches 486 miles.
