Nordic Walking week commencing 30th October, 2017
So we had some awesome days last week and a couple of drizzlies. Having the drizzly days just makes us appreciate the wonderful sunny ones even more! I went a bit photo crazy last week on those sunny days as you can see from my pics this week. Such a fab time of year!
POP UP FRIDAY
This week we are going to do a 6 miler entirely on flat country paths and a smidge on road from Jordan’s Mill (check out picture of the river and willows above) This is a lovely walk and if you’d like to come along please bring a small snack and a drink. On completion of the walk we will have, you guessed it, a lovely cuppa at the Mill. This walk is for Moderates and Gentle Plus paces. £7
Welcome to Frances, Kath and Judy who completed their Technique course this week. We look forward to seeing you on our walks and if you have any questions, just let me know.
