BetterPoints Pushing Ahead Norfolk Challenge is ending in May

14 May 2020

All good things come to an end, and the BetterPoints Pushing Ahead Norfolk Challenge, which has been running for two years, will end on 31st May 2020. This challenge, which was in partnership with Norfolk County Council and the Pushing Ahead partnership, encouraged and rewarded residents of Norwich and Great Yarmouth to increase their walking, running and cycling activities within the area.

Over 2,700 people took part in the challenge, and here are the highlights. More than 236 tonnes of CO2e were potentially avoided through active travel.

The feedback from residents has been inspiring - check out some of the stories below.
