Nordic Walking week commencing 2nd July, 2018


Hi Walkers,

A reminder of the Bedford River Festival 2.5 mile Nordic Walk and stroll on Sunday 15th July, at 10am from St Mary’s Meadow (which is across the river from the Vue Cinema, next to Bedford College)  You can register by going to our website and it’s free!  Dogs on leads are welcome too.  There will be a lot of fun things to do and catering stalls to enjoy.  This is organized by us and hope you tell your friends and family to come along too!   If any of you would like to help us out at this event marshalling that would be awesome.  Thanks.

Well done to Paul who passed the walk leader course last week.

A note for walkers who are travelling between Marston and Ampthill please note that the road is closed at the level crossing at Millbrook on Saturday and Sunday (7th & 8th July) – alternative route via Stewartby.
