Nordic Walking week commencing 29th October, 2018
After all the rain yesterday and this morning, we were again blessed with sunshine for the second leg of the Icknield Way today. Everyone did so well especially as there was a few muddy sections. Thank you to Bridget and Tom for all their time in making the trail accessible for us and for leading the way. Also thanks to Sheelagh and Denise for helping ferry walkers to the start. Great team effort all ’round!
We will do the third section of this walk so will let you all know the details soon.
Next May we are looking to do a mini walking break to Slovenia and looking around the week of the 6th. Numbers are limited so please let me know if you’re interested in going as soon as possible. At the moment we just need an idea of numbers so we can look into the accommodation. This trip is quite challenging with lots of hills so aimed more towards the Moderate walker. I will be arranging a Gentle Plus trip abroad too next year, and will let you know the details of this shortly.
This year our Christmas lunch is booked for 5th December at 12noon at The Cross Keys, Wood End. Please let me know if you are interested in coming this year, we have a maximum of 30. I will put the Menu on the website tomorrow for you to peruse. Thanks.
CRANFIELD BUNCH CHRISTMAS DINNER
We are so happy to have secured Oso’s again for our Christmas Dinner in Cranfield. This will be on Wednesday 19th December at 7pm. Numbers are limited to 20 so please let me know as soon as possible if you intend to come. Woohoo!
I will be organising a Saturday Christmas lunch too and will give you the details next week. Cheers!
