National Walking Month

It's National Walking Month!

Join our annual celebration of walking and streets.

As we mark our 90th anniversary, join our campaign to make streets fitter for walking for everyone, whether they are aged nine or 90. 

And add more walking to your daily routine, be it at work, to school, or around your neighbourhood.

Pavement Potholes

Our pavements should be safe for all. And yet too many of them are neglected, worn out, damaged - and unfit for walking.

Now research commissioned ahead of National Walking Month reveals that one in three older people are prevented from walking by potholed and cracked pavements. The problem also affects young children and disabled people.

Add the costs to councils of people tripping and falling on unfit pavements, there's a clear need for a pedestrian fightback.

Kate Humble wants you to #WalkThisMay!

Living Streets is delighted to announce that TV presenter and author Kate Humble is the National Walking Month Ambassador for 2019.

"Walking is something I love to do," she says in the video she made for us, "so I’m afraid I’m going to be a bit of a bully and ask you all to try and fit a little bit more walking into your life."
