Nordic Walking week commencing 23rd April, 2018
So glad so many of you were able to get out and enjoy the lovely weather last week on some fab walks. Woburn was as beautiful as ever and we got to watch the Swans, both black and white cruising around the mirror like pond, the Deer were out as well which always makes this walk a firm favourite. The Bedford embankment walk was just lovely and we timed it well with all the flowers standing to attention as we walked on by. Thanks to all who came along. With the warmer temperatures we now start having to think about sunblock and bringing water; so please remember to hydrate! We’re happy to carry your bottles.
POP UP FRIDAY
Another Pop Up this week and this time we’re going for a lovely walk with the most amazing views. Many of you have done this one before and it is a real treat. There are a few friendly “inclines” but it’s all so worth it for the panoramic views. Meeting at the park gates on Old Road, Barton Le Clay, MK45 4LB – 3 miles – £5
RACHEL’S FAREWELL DO
