“I never thought I’d enjoy things like wildlife whilst walking. I see ducks, foxes and swans!”
Levi chooses to walk to work as a security guard at The Northern School of Contemporary Dance and believes in getting people in the community healthy. His favourite part of his walks is engaging with nature’s animals. The walks have allowed him to develop an interest for wild flowers.
I developed a love of walking, when I realised I could get places quicker rather than having a car. I didn’t have a car anymore and I was getting buses, I just liked walking, getting outside, it keeps you fit, gets you healthy.
I moved to Gledhow and I work in Chapeltown. I walk different routes, I like going through the woods, you get to see nature at its best.
I’ll walk through the woods, it was hard work to start with, then I started to enjoy it – I realised I could get there quicker than the bus many times too!
“I’ll create myself a game.”
I like to encourage others – they find out things too, how good it can make you feel. I like walking, talking, socialising and chatting – just enjoy the beautiful day, the beautiful things that surround you.
