Nordic Walking week commencing 1st October, 2018
Another fantastic weekend of walks and events! On Saturday we raised £160 for Macmillan and another £60 for the Bedford Daycare Hospice. Thanks to you guys for baking cakes and those of you who were eating them too! Sheelagh was in her element manning the stalls with Paula and Anne; I really appreciated you giving your time for this fun event.
LONDON BRIDGES CHALLENGE for DIABETES UK
Year three of doing this challenge and it proved to be just as good as it was before with 18 of us (our biggest team yet!) marching over 12 bridges in London over 10 miles. Well done to all of you who came along and took part for this great cause.
DATES FOR YOUR DIARY – Icknield Way 24th & 28th Oct
This fun challenge is a new one for us but has the most magnificent views of any that we’ve done before in England! We will walk on two consecutive Sunday mornings and there will be pub stops en route. We will need to know numbers as these two walks are linear where you will be ferried to the start. We are risk assessing these walks this week so I will give you more details next week. Approx 10 miles each walk. Starting at Ivinghoe Beacon and finishing the second Sunday in Streatley. Awesome challenge!
