Nordic Walking week commencing 4th December, 2017
Thank you to everyone who came along to the Santa Stroll today! It was great to see you. The day wouldn’t have been possible without my kind Marshalls who gave up their time to help out, they were Tony, Bev (Brandy the dog), Barbara, Trish, Sheelagh, Cathy and Denise. Gordon has put so much time into the day and the route signage was all down to him as well as helping organise the whole thing. A BIG thank you too to Bev C who brought her carol singing friends the Roxtonettes to make it really feel festive and fun. Even Rachel found herself “on duty” for most of the afternoon unexpectedly so thanks Rachel. I’m so lucky to have such great friends around me to help and support all our events and escapades. Thanks everyone.
CRANDFIELD WALK LOCATION CHANGE TOMORROW
Due to bits of an Aircraft coming through Cranfield tomorrowmorning, we will be meeting at Cranfield Football Club instead. Please bring your paws as there will be some walking on pavement. The Football club is located on Crawley Road, MK43 0AA
If you are buying your own poles, please make sure they are Nordic Walking Poles and NOT Trekking poles. Anyone who doesn’t yet have Nordic Poles are welcome to use my poles so you can achieve the full Nordic Technique. If you need any help, just let me know.
This coming Saturday the Striders class will begin at 8:45am for a Technique overview, followed by our usual class.
We have a few more lovely walkers to join us, they are: Steve, Kathy, Sam, Jo, Jenny and John. We look forward to seeing you out on the trails with us.
