A ramblers’ group has won a national award for creating a video promoting walking.

The Oxon Weekend Walkers were recognised by The Ramblers after creating a six-minute video entitled Out and about with the Oxon Weekend Walkers, which encourages viewers to fit walking into their weekends.

The award was presented to chairman Vanessa Corrick by The Ramblers president Kate Ashbrook in Liverpool on Saturday. They beat two other groups who had also been nominated from London and Cardiff.

And the video was good enough that The Ramblers said a group being set up in Hertfordshire used it as an example for what they wanted to achieve.
