Golden Boot Challenge Useful Tips

Involving Staff

This year, staff can record their efforts on-line by creating a class and calling it 'Staff'. Who knows, this year could see the Golden Boot trophy being awarded to staff! The Challenge might be an opportunity for staff to start a car sharing rota or to investigate potential park and walk sites.
