Week beginning 25 April

I hope you all had a good Easter. We did a lot of catching up with family and celebrated my lovely father-in-laws 90th birthday. Back to our normal timetable of classes from tomorrow 25 April apart from Saturday 30 April there is no Nordic Walking.

Ukraine fundraising
Thank you to everyone who contributed by buying the hand knitted bears and bunnies and joining in the blanket raffle we raised over £250.

Cuckoo Walks Brindle 
This is an annual event and after a 2 year break due to Covid it was back and what a pleasure to explore areas around Brindle. Different length walks depending on how far you want to go 3, 6, 9 or 12 miles. It was a beautiful day! I will let you know about anything like this happening again as it was a real pleasure.

No Nordic Walking Saturday 30 April Bank Holiday Weekend
It is the  anniversary of my son Yianni’s death so no walk that day.

No classes Monday 2 May due to May day Bank Holiday

No Thursday evening classes 5 May at Prospect House 

Prospect House is being used as a Polling station so no classes that evening.
