Nordic Walking week commencing 19th November, 2018
Well, we smashed our target for our Charity walk so a BIG thanks to all of you who took part in the Charity walk, and also to those who kindly donated. It means so much to the Bedford Daycare Hospice and because we raised over £100 more than our target, they are able to purchase a more durable and stronger Industrial Blender. Fantastic job all of you!
Two of our Striders took part in the British Nordic Walking 10K and 5K events in Staffordshire today. I’m proud to say that Paula won the Ladies 10K AND Bob won the 5K! You both did so well and worked very hard in your training up to this event so really well done! Yipee! It is an especially remarkable result for Bob who has been fighting back to fitness from Lyme Disease for two years. Wow!
Can’t believe it’s a year since we went to June’s for her annual Craft/Quiliting morning. Time is flying! June hand makes the most exquisite things from Boot bags, advent calendars, gift cards and beautiful bags and so much more. Each year we pop along to her house after our walk to see her wares and have a cuppa and a cake (or two!) Great ideas for unique Christmas gifts so come along and enjoy!
NEWBIES & POLES
Just have to say how great it is to see all my new walkers coming along to the classes! It’s so great having you all join in the fun! For those of you who would like a second hand pair of poles, I will be selling four pairs of my Nordic Walking Training Poles for £28 on a first come first served basis. Just let me know if you are interested. Thanks guys.
A Massive thank you to my “Snowdonians” and especially Sue and Haydn for making me the most beautiful photo book or our wonderful trip to Wales in September. I will treasure it always…
