Week commencing 15 April 2019

Nordic Walks commencing 15th April, 2019

Beautiful Spring time walks were had by all last week and we managed to dodge the inclement weather too!  Thanks to all of you who came along to enjoy our fab walks.   The evening walks proved a big hit and those who attended really worked hard, especially in the HIIT class (picture below) which was tough.  Well done guys!  
Congratulations to Martin who completed his Walk Leader qualification last week!  We look forward to many great walks with you Martin.  Martin will be joining, Gordon, Paul, Denise and Rachel to our Walk Leaders Team.  Without the Walk Leaders kindly volunteering their time, we couldn’t offer so many walks; so thank you guys.

This Tuesday we will be meeting at 8:30am for a nice rollercoaster walk from Lidlington.  Meeting by the playground on the main road through Lidlington across from Lombard Street.  Just park on the side of the road.  Drink after at the Hub as usual. 

If you are unsure of what group you should be in, please ask me or a Walk Leader and we will assist you.  A reminder: 

Moderate 1 – Fast with hills (challenging)
Moderate 2 – slower pace than Mod 1 not as many big hills.
Moderate 3 – slower pace than Mod 2 mostly flat, only odd undulations.
Gentle Plus – slower pace than Mod 3 and mostly flat the whole time. 

Please let us know if you are in any difficulty so we can take care of you.  If you need to stop for any reason (doing laces up, having a drink, need a breather, shoot off to the loo!) please speak up so we can be sure you are okay.  If you aren’t near a Walk Leader, let one of the other walkers know so we know where you are at all times.  You are why we do our walks so we want you to have the best time, so just let us know if you need to stop anytime or are struggling.  Thanks Walkers, Elaine xx 

Our Caron is kindly supporting Ability Bow, our current Charity by offering facials/make overs using products from the Tropic range which are natural, vegan and cruelty-free products and are just amazing!  If you’d like to book in with Caron, she can come to yours or you can go to hers and you will have the most wonderful time being spoiled with a lovely natural make over/facial.  As mentioned, Caron is giving her time for Ability Bow for the next month so is asking for a donation of £3.  There is no sales catch with this, just come and be spoiled!  For more info on Ability Bow’s work, click here: http://www.abilitybow.org/our-work  You can email Caron at caron.brooks@btinternet.com or phone 07941872955 Thanks everyone and a BIG thank you Caron!
Have a fantastic week everyone!
Many thanks,
