‘Nordic Walking – The Natural Workout’ Newsletter – 6th October 2018

Dear All,

So, October has arrived and brought the first of the Autumn colours with it.  Autumn is a beautiful season; I love it 😊

It’s been another week during which the rain has stayed away from our walks, even when the forecast indicated differently.  It just goes to show that it’s always worth throwing the jacket in the car and going for it anyway.  The jacket just may not be needed.

Our Macmillan and ‘Long Sunday’ walks were really good.  The ladies at the Macmillan Coffee Morning looked at me in disbelief when I gave them the money.  A worthy charity and a lovely walk.  Thank you to those who joined me in supporting this charity.  The ‘Long Sunday’ walk was good in many ways and I am hoping that more of you will be able to join the next one.

What Kind of Walk?

Once again, a big thank you to those of you who have responded to my request of a couple of weeks ago.  I will be revamping the program over the weekend.  Therefore, if you haven’t responded and the information you gave me when you first joined is out of date, please update me.

Learn to Nordic Walk Courses

I have been asked to run a course on a Sunday afternoon during November, so that will be going on the Booking System over the weekend.  There may be another Saturday one starting in October as well.  However, I need to contact those who have expressed interest first.

Please spread the word to anyone you know who has indicated that they may be interested.


Very few people have said that they are interested and available for a get-together on Saturday 8th December.  Therefore, I will discuss the options with those who have and we will decide what & where between us.  Then, I will publish the walk as usual.

Walks Available to Book

As I was waiting to hear from you before publishing the walks for the second half of October, there are currently only 6 walks available to book and they are listed below.  As I have said above, there will be more by the end of the weekend.  Just follow the link to my website and you will find all of the details and photographs, and be able to book.
