“Too much time looking at the computer makes my mind sluggish and I find I get distracted. A quick walk and some air normally brings the concentration back as well as stopping me getting too stiff.”
Turn your working lunch into a walking lunch!
We know that many, like us in the office, end up working through lunch or eating a sandwich at their desk. Glasgow City Heritage Trust is developing a programme of lunchtime walks designed to get fellow built environment / heritage / culture professionals based in the city centre out of the office at lunchtime on short walks exploring the social and architectural heritage of the city centre.
These walks aren’t ‘guided’ in the traditional sense. Instead we pick an existing trail or area we’d like to find out more about and explore it together, with plenty of opportunity to chat and mix with other walkers.
So if you’ve got an idea for a fun walk let us know or come along and join us on a walk. It’s a great way of finding out more about the city and meeting new people!
Participants will be encouraged to sign up to lead walks on a voluntary basis, sharing their specific expertise or knowledge of Glasgow with the group in an informal setting.
These walks will build on our usual programme of guided heritage walks – with the overall aim being to increase the number of people becoming active through enjoying the historic environment.
All walks will be under an hour, and take place in the city centre, designed to encourage fellow professionals to get out of the office at lunchtimes, to meet with other professionals and to learn something new before returning to the office refreshed.
