Walking group is awarded £133,000 by Big Lottery Fund

A walking group in Wiltshire has been granted more than £130,000 by the Big Lottery Fund.

Get Wiltshire Walking (GWW) will use the money to create 32 walks, train 64 volunteers and employ two co-ordinators enabling 400 new people to take part.

The £133,000, was awarded as part of the Reaching Communities programme with five organisations in the south west sharing £1.1m.

Wiltshire Council said GWW created "stronger, more resilient communities".

The council said the walks focused on people's mental and physical well-being.
