Nordic Walking week commencing 14th May, 2018
Great effort by Virginia and Paula who did really well at the British Nordic Walking challenge series this past Saturday. You do us proud girls!
PARKING ON SATURDAY MORNING’S
Due to the Cricket Club starting up their season again, parking spaces at the West Car Park on Saturday mornings are becoming scarce. I am considering starting this class a half hour earlier to help prevent the problems we’re finding but would like feedback from all of you regarding a time change. This too would mean a change for the earlier classes also. We will keep things as they are for the moment but please allow enough time to get parked.
This Sunday 20th we have the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire of 10 miles and I will contact all those who have signed up to sort out travel arrangements. Gordon and I did the Risk assessment last Friday and this will be a great challenge and quite unlike any other walk we’ve done before. Check out the top pic!
