Nordic Walking week commencing 26th November, 2018
So the earmuffs were needed this week for some chilly morning walks which, although nippy, were nonetheless fab! It’s great to see the paces speed up as we all try to warm up! You guys were flying! As you can see from the picture, this is the industrial blender the Bedford Daycare Hospice was able to purchase thanks to you all. Well done everyone.
This coming Sunday is our Annual Santa Stroll and it will be great to see you all there. With options of 2.5k or a 5k walk around the park in Ampthill this is a really fun and festive morning. Bev’s Carol Singers will be there and there will the beautiful crochet and quilting gifts from Enza, June and Lesley. The Hub will be handing out soup and rolls to all of the participants after the walk along with hot chocolate and mince pies. VOLUNTEERS – I will need a couple of marshalls for the Santa Stroll so if any of you can help out, please let me know. Thanks.
5th December 12pm. Cross Keys, Wood End
For those of you coming to this lunch can you make sure you’ve sent me your menu choices and paid the £5 deposit as I need to submit them asap to the restaurant. Thanks.
CRANFIELD CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL – THURSDAY 6th December
To all my Cranfield Bunch, any help you can give to decorate the Walk2Fitness Christmas tree would be gratefully received. I will be getting to the Church in Cranfield at 2:45pm to start decorating. The theme of the festival this year is PEACE so any ideas, please let me know, thanks. We’ll pop to Oso’s after for a nice warm cuppa!
QUIZ & CHIPS – Saturday 22nd December 11:15am to 12pm
We will have our annual Quiz and Chips at the Hub on the last Saturday before Christmas. This is a fun general knowledge quiz for all and with chips! If you can let me know if you’re interested I can then make sure we have enough chips for all. Free social.
CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY WALKS
