Week beginning 6 May, start dates for Thursday evening Zumba and Friday classes

May is National Walking Month and it is a good time to be getting out as the weather has improved. Walking for just 20 minutes a day can be life-changing. Walking for health – NHS (www.nhs.uk).

Nordic Walking is a great way to walk and has additional benefits BBC Radio 4 – Just One Thing – with Michael Mosley, Nordic Walking My Nordic Walking groups have continued without me which is wonderful. I still can’t keep up the pace to join them yet due to my hip replacement but if anybody wants to do Nordic Walking Technique training I am still doing that with a session next Saturday 11 May.
