Nordic Walking week commencing 8th May, 2017
Hi Nordic Walkers,
Another wonderful week of walks as Spring is well and truly here in all it’s splendour. We had a lovely walk to the Stevington Windmill which we’ll do again later in the summer.
Thanks to Kathy for organising a lovely lunch for us last Wednesday in Campton. Great walk, great lunch, awesome company!

OUR SPONSORED WALK FOR LOCAL CHARITY – 15th July
I am organising, along with my trusty Walk Leaders and helpers, a Sponsored walk for Bedford Hospice Day Centre. This is such a wonderful charity that helps people who are going through tremendous difficulties. The sponsored walk will be in four stages so you can choose to do 1, 2, 3 or all 4 stages on the day. It is approximately 20 miles in all but I will be getting a more accurate mileage after completing it shortly. This will be open to your friends and family too so please get the word out. The more money we can raise the better! The walk will be guided by me and my Walk Leaders. The route is as follows:
Ampthill to Ridgemont (station café)
Ridgemont to Cranfield (Oso’s café)
Cranfield to The Forest Centre, Marston Moretaine
Forest Centre to Ampthill (Hub)
There will be a celebratory party at the Hub following the walk. We will also be holding a Cake sale at The Hub too during the day.
DOVEDALE DIPPER – DERBYSHIRE – August 6th
This is an organised walk by Matlock Rotary. Open to anyone, runners, walkers alike. I was planning on taking us up on Saturday 5th to do a walk in the Peak District and staying overnight. The next day doing the Dovedale Dipper of 15miles.
Details to follow. Let me know if you want to join us.
