Nordic Walking week commencing 11th December, 2017
We will need to wrap up this week as the December colder weather sets in. Layers are a good idea and of course and extra pack of tissues! The frosty mornings are by far my favourite with the sound of the crispy leaves under foot and clean air filling the lungs…..what better way to exercise!
EARLIER START THIS THURSDAY
Due to our Nordic Christmas Lunch on Thursday, (which is at 12pm) we will have an earlier start for our walk to enable us to get our walk in and get home to change in plenty of time. Thanks.
QUIZ & CHIPS
This coming Saturday is our annual General knowledge Quiz at The Hub where you can enjoy some fine hot chips from the Hub as the cogs turn! If you haven’t already let me know you wish to come along, can you do so by Thursday so we can provide enough food. Thanks.
CRANFIELD CHRISTMAS DINS NOW AT OSO’S!
For our Cranfield bunch we are now having our Christmas dinner at Oso’s on the 18th at 6:30pm. I will be receiving the menu soon so if you can make your choices as soon as possible, that will be great.
