Week beginning 31 October, sleep and next Nordic Walking technique course


My husband is doing really well after his hip replacement. I am amazed at the efficiency of the NHS and very grateful that he has had this done. He can look forward to pain free years now and we can go for walks together again which was one of our favourite things. Thank you for all your kind wishes.

Sleep and how to have better quality sleep
Sleep can be a bit elusive sometimes for some people. Dr Michael Mosley has done a fabulous 5  part series on Radio 4 which really helps inform you of good strategies for better sleep. Really worth a listen if you are struggling in anyway Just One Thing – with Michael Mosley – Sleep Well – with Michael Mosley – Sleep Well – Episode 1: Breathe – BBC Sounds
