‘Nordic Walking – The Natural Workout’ Newsletter – 16th August 2018

Dear All,

Firstly, sorry for missing last week with regard to this e-mail.  I have given myself a stern talking, and listening, to and promise to try to do better in future 😊.

Welcome to our three new Nordic Walking UK Freedom Passport holders who successfully completed the course on Tuesday 14th August.  Well done and congratulations to all of you.  We are now 15 strong and growing with every Learn to Nordic Walk course.

What’s New?

Another new walk to add to the list – from Standish this time.  Despite the rain we have had, all the walks are still achievable in the footwear you have been wearing.  I really do encourage you to try to join the walks across the fields while we still can.

In the last Newsletter, I said: ‘I will aim to publish the walks for the remainder of August before the next Newsletter’.  Well, the walks up to, and including, Thursday 13th September are available on the system – 23 in total.  Please be aware that it may be necessary to change the location of the walks, if the weather intervenes, but I will endeavour to replace them with something of the same ‘difficulty’.  The dates and times will remain the same.

The next Learn to Nordic Walk will start on Tuesday 25th September at 4.30pm in the Beacon Country Park in Up Holland.  After this all courses will finish before 3.30pm (ie start by 2.30pm) until next Spring.  Please spread the word.

Christmas

Yes, it will be here before we know it and I thought it would be nice to have a walk and a lunch to celebrate.  I am currently looking for suitable venues, so nothing is set, yet.  However, if you are potentially interested, please put Saturday 8th December in your diary.  The plan is to walk first and follow it with lunch at 12.30 / 1pm (ish).  Details to follow.

Walks Available to Book

The 23 walks available to book are listed below.  Just follow the link to my website and you will find all of the details and photographs, and be able to book.
