Pre­sen­ter Kate takes writ­ing in her stride

Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS - BY ROD MINCHIN

TV pre­sen­ter Kate Hum­ble has spo­ken of the up­lift­ing ben­e­fits she has found from go­ing out walk­ing. The for­mer BBC Spring­watch host said walk­ing helped her to re­lax or stop feel­ing mis­er­she able and likened it to med­i­ta­tion. She also liked hold­ing meet­ings out­side while walk­ing her dogs as it aided cre­ativ­ity. Hum­ble (49) said grow­ing up as a child in the coun­try­side, walk­ing was some­thing she just did.

Hum­ble said af­ter liv­ing and work­ing in Lon­don for 20 years, started to miss the coun­try­side. Hum­ble, who now lives in the Wye Val­ley with her TV pro­ducer hus­band Ludo Gra­ham, was speak­ing at the Chel­tenham Lit­er­a­ture Fes­ti­val to pro­mote her new book, Think­ing On My Feet, which pro­motes the virtues of walk­ing.
