Nordic Walks week commencing 19th September, 2016.
Hi Nordic Walkers,
Another week has flown by already and soon it will be our Summer Social next Saturday! I do hope you will be able to join us in having a little get together at The Hub café in Ampthill Park at 11am. We will also have a Cake stand starting at 12:30pm in aid of the Macmillan charity so if there are some of you who are keen bakers, we’d love to sell your cake/cookies or anything else that’s yummy to help towards this great cause. If you are planning to do a cake for this event, could you let me know by Wednesday. Thanks.
I will be going around checking your techniques in the next couple of weeks to see if any bad habits have snuck in! Sometimes a little adjustment here and there can make a big difference.
Saturday 1st October, 11am – Ampthill West Car Park
Wednesday 5th October, 10am – Woburn Public Car Park, Woburn
Friday 7th October, 12pm – Rowney Warren car park, Shefford
If you have any friends or family who would like to learn Nordic Walking, please have them email me to book their place. Thanks.

POP UP FRIDAY WALK
Another attempt at this Pop Up walk in Woburn this week as we got rained off last week. I did this walk on Saturday and it was fantastic. Only one Elephant this time but up close and personal with the Rhino’s! (check out the pics!) This is truly a great walk with lovely countryside scenes and flattish too! BOOKING ESSENTIAL. £7
Congratulations to Paula our Mod Plus Speed Racer who came joint first in a 16.1 mile race in Dorset this weekend completing it in 4hours 5mins. Well done Paula!
