Nordic Walking week commencing 15th October, 2018
A great week of walks again as Autumn grabs hold. This is a great time of year for walking as temperatures cool and the colours change. This past week the Gentle Plus group had their annual getaway and the sun shone down on us for both days. Sandringham estate was again just spectacular to walk around and the following day we stretched our legs on the beach at Hunstanton (see top two pics) Thanks to all who came to make this a memorable trip, not just for the walking but the laughter too!
Icknield Way – stage 1
Last week I said to let me know by the 7th Oct if you wanted to join the Icknield Way walks, but it should have said 17th. So do let me know if you fancy this great challenge next Sunday.
Meeting at the White Lion Pub, Watling St, Dunstable LU6 1RS at 1030am. We’ll ferry folks to the start of the walk at Ivinghoe Beacon. 11miles. £8. Bring snacks and drink. Booking essential. Thanks.
POP UP FRIDAY – 19th October 10am – Woburn Public Car park.
Remember to book onto our fantastic Safari walk in Woburn. Amazing scenery with Elephants en route! Bring snacks and a drink. We stop half way on this 6 mile stunner. £7 Please Book, thanks.
