Nordic Walking week commencing 20th February, 2017
Hi Nordic Walkers,
We have some more Newbies who have just completed their Technique Course this past week, they are: Clair, Suzanne, Kate, Eileen, Emma, Judy, Christine, Jilly, Dave, Susie, Jeff D, Jeff S, Sally, Joan and Gina.
We look forward to seeing you all in the classes and our regulars will give you a warm welcome. They are a great bunch! Below you will see a list of walks and they are graded according to speed. Let me know if you need help figuring out which class you should go to or if you need any other info.
PARKINSON’S CHARITY WALK – MAY 21st.
I know you had difficulties registering online; so I will be emailing out the booking forms when they are sent to me at the end of the month by Parkinson’s UK. In the meantime, just mark the date in your diary and we’ll look forward to a great walk for a great cause. Thanks.

Well done to Caroline for doing four classes this week and increasing speed steadily. Great stuff!
Caron is a walker who attends four classes a week regularly and has improved her fitness tremendously since she started. Well done for your commitment Caron and for inspiring others.
