Week beginning 28 March

Another stunning weekend with beautiful weather!
A subject that has come up in class recently is sleep- how to fall asleep and how to stay asleep. Below is a really useful article. I would also add watch your caffeine intake in coffee and tea. If I have a cup of tea after 5pm that is it I can’t sleep! Class members have found they are sleeping better after getting out in the fresh air for a walk and also after Pilates.

Cuckoo Walks Brindle Saturday 23 April – no 10.30am Nordic Walk group that day
The Brindle Cuckoo Walks are an annual event run to encourage walkers to enjoy the countryside around Brindle Village by joining us on our family-friendly day. Walks of different lengths are offered and each is led by an experienced Leader, enabling everyone to enjoy the countryside in the company of other walkers. Numbers are limited, so early registration on-line is advised. (see below for details) Pick a walk length that suits you (or your group) and pay by Credit Card or PayPal. This event is run by volunteers from the Brindle Community, and profits are given to charities and local causes. This year, the beneficiaries will be voted for by all registered walkers on the day, and funds distributed accordingly.
