Nearly half of Bucks residents are not exercising regularly enough, according to a new study to mark National Walking Month.

It shows 26% of us do less than half an hour’s activity a week - 3% lower than the national average - and 43% fail to meet the current recommendation of 150 minutes a week.

The statistics compiled by Sport England have been released to mark National Walking Month throughout May and Bucks County Council’s public health team is encouraging people to get walking to boost health.
