Best foot forward for health

Employees at Western Water’s head office in Sunbury took to the footpaths beside Macedon Street as part of last Wednesday’s Walk the Block.

An initiative of Victoria Walks, the annual event is aimed at encouraging office workers to get active by offsetting time spent sitting.

‘‘We are really pleased to be taking part … and encouraging everyone at Western Water to get up from their desks for regular walks,’’ Western Water people and culture general manager Libby Hasler said.

‘‘Walking is a simple way everyone can improve their health and wellbeing, making for a happier workplace.’’
