Local lecturer strides to success!


Chris Evans, Senior Lecturer at Southern Regional College has been working hard to encourage members of staff members across all campuses to grab their walking shoes and get outdoors with Walking In Your Community.

After having successfully completed his training as a Community Walk Leader, Chris has been using his skills to manage and lead regular walks under the scheme to improve the fitness levels and overall well being of staff. Chris has already reached the first bronze milestone under the newly launched incentive scheme and was rewarded with some fantastic Walking In Your Community goodies. Furthermore, he was also the lucky winner of a fantastic £50 Cotswold Outdoors Gift voucher after having completed a Community Walk Leader survey online.

Nicola Cully, Marketing Officer at Walking In Your Community commented “Chris has been a stand out Community Walk Leader and it is great to see that he has been using his training to make a difference to the lives of the teaching staff at the Southern Regional College. The programme’s overall aim is to get people outdoors and to enjoy their local green spaces and so far Chris has been doing a fantastic job achieving this in his role as Community Walk Leader at the Southern Regional College.”
