Nordic Walking week commencing 12th March, 2018
The speeds definitely increased this week in ALL the classes! Loved seeing everyone going for it on the hills, especially the Mod group yesterday going up Heart Rate in Ampthill and the Thursday bunch on Cemetary Hill in Bedford. Great Stuff!
The weather will be hit and miss this week so remember to check the website for any changes.
FAREWELL TO MIKE & JANE
I am very sad to see our wonderful friends Mike and Jane leaving us as they are moving to York. Mike and Jane were in one of my first groups when I was starting out and have loyally walked with us ever since. Their last walk will be this coming Thursday, so please come along to wish them well and enjoy a last walk with our friends and of course, tea and cake at the Golf Club. Let me take this opportunity to thank you both for coming to the walks in all weathers and locations and most of all for your company through the years….We will miss you both very much.
ST PADDY’S DAY WALK
This Saturday, come rain or shine, we will be doing our St Paddy’s Day walk through Ampthill. This will be a walk through the streets and alleyways culminating in the pub where we will raise a glass to St Patrick himself! This is a walk of 3 miles and you will need your paws and have some green on! The Ireland/England Rugby match isn’t till later so come and join us before you head off to watch Ireland win the Six Nations once again!
