Week commencing 30th September 2019
A mixed bag of weather last week and another one this week. Hopefully I won’t need to cancel again but please do check before leaving. You can see the latest bulletin on the website www.walk2fitness.co.uk
This Sunday we have a longer walk and car sharing is available from Ampthill if you need. For the longer walks I need a minimum of 6 walkers for it to go ahead so if you could let me know if you wish to attend any of our longer walks, just let me know. Thanks everyone.
PLANS FOR LONGER WALKS/HOLIDAYS
I’m hoping to offer more longer local walks to you all. These will be on the weekends as well as in the week.
Also I am putting together some ideas for our longer walks further afield for next year. So far, on the cards we have Italy and Slovenia but as always these walking holidays have limited spaces so let me know if you wish to come as soon as I post the dates. This will be happening shortly. I am looking to do two trips to the Peak District next year and for the Gentle walkers; Snowdonia where there are some lovely lower level walks and beach walks. A walking Holiday and challenge in Scotland is in the planning stages too. Our walking holidays are challenging but also such great fun. Our fab walkers Sue & Haydn are helping me plan so watch this space for all the info on our upcoming challenges.
GENTLE BERRY PICKING WALK – 10am – Wednesday
This Wednesday morning we are taking a stroll from The Knife & Cleaver in Houghton Conquest towards Kings Woods, but just remaining in the fields below to do some berry picking. This is a short walk with ample plum fruit bushes that are untouched! Join us for this fun social walk with a nice cuppa afterwards in the pub.
Thanks to all my wonderful walkers who baked some beautiful cakes for our annual Macmillan fundraiser! Thanks to Sheelagh, Elaine F and Barbara for running the stall which was a task in itself on such a windy day. Just by baking your cakes and those of you buying them too, we raised £360! Thank you so much.
This week we have a great walk planned at Royston Heath. Though this is a bit of a distance it is worth the views and enjoyable scenery. There is also a pub en route and a lovely cafe at the end. Approximately 6 miles.
