July?! Goodness, 2017 is screeching through!
You know we are in for an excitable weather system time as Wimbledon, Henley Regatta, Henley rewind and School holidays all happen in July! But that doesn’t bother our hardy seasoned Nordic walkers! We just dress for the weather and adjust the walks if necessary! That was certainly the case when we moved our high altitude exposed Solstice Walk to the cooler lower grounds of a canal path and added in a pub for refreshments! Thank you everyone for being so accommodating that day. That’s also the beauty of our booking in system as we can react positively and no one is left stranded or wanting because we know who is coming!
Checkout the Walk Schedule as we are having a makeover! Thanks to our fabulous new venue partners we can reach out to the four corners of Berkshire.
There is a skeleton schedule of walks from 15th July to 22nd July so do check the Online Diary.
