Nordic Walking week commencing 20th August, 2018
A fine turnout for our annual Charity walk and ideal weather made this a wonderful day for all concerned. A big thank you to all of you who came along and walked the 14.2 miles (sneakily snuck an extra mile in!) You all did brilliantly as did Toby and Brandy on their four paws! Walks like this aren’t possible without my Walk Leaders so thank you Gordon and Denise for your time helping to plan this great day. We raised £330 for the Bedford Day Care Hospice so well done to all. Woohoo!
This week we have the John Bunyan Boat Ride from the Danish Camp to Bedford! Yay! The walk from Priory Country Park should take little over an hour so to make sure we get there on time, I would ask that we all meet at the main car park with the flagpole at the Country park at 12:45pm. Please bring your own food for the ride back if you wish and there is coffee and tea on board. The boat trip should take approx. 2 hours. Cost is £22 which includes the walk and boat trip. Thanks.
