Better Bankside’s popular employee walking programme ‘Bustling Bankside’ is set to expand. January 2013 will see the launch of the ‘Bankside Speed Walkers’. Group speed walks will take place on Monday lunchtimes from 21st January 2013. The walks will cover between 3 and 5 miles, take place from 1.10-1.50pm and leave from the Bankside Community Space. This new club will be run in partnership with The Bridge and aims to encourage employee fitness and wellbeing. Better Bankside are keen to get workers away from their their desks, out of their offices and into the fresh air for short periods of time, every day. It has been proven that exercise and movement increases concentration and raises work production levels.
‘Bankside Speed Walkers’ will be an addition to the already popular ‘Bustling Bankside.’ The monthly cultural walking tours will also return in January 2013. The year will see the return of some favourite themes such as the ‘Foreshore Walk’ on Bankside beach and the ‘Backstreet Boozers’ crawl as well as the introduction of some new ones including, ‘Southwark and the Blitz’ and ‘Musical Bankside’. The 2013 programme will also feature indoor tours and behind the scenes access to some of Bankside’s famous visitor attractions.
The first Bustling Bankside of the New Year will be on Wednesday 23rd January at lunchtime. Keep an eye on the events pages and book a place early: we’ll be delving deep into Theatre History with a tour of The Rose – Shakespeare’s original theatre.
