We are so excited to be teaming up with the The Nature Discovery Centre in Thatcham.
This fantastic visitor centre is packed full of interactive wildlife and natural history displays. There is a network of footpaths ranging from small family-friendly walks to longer paths for the more adventurous, and the bird hide offers a perfect opportunity to watch the world go by.
We shall now be offering Nordic walking FREE Taster sessions, Beginner Classes and regular walks from here.
The First Learn to Nordic Walk beginner session is Wednesday 12th July 12.30pm.
There is a very welcoming cafe where we can enjoy a natter with a cuppa and cake after a session.

This cheeky exercise in disguise that burns 40% more calories and uses 90% of the body’s muscles for an all over body work out. It’s a fabulous way to:
It is sociable outdoor fun and you can explore the countryside with friends.
Remember, when you have completed a Nordic Walking Beginner Class you will receive a Freedom Passport.
The Freedom Passport is issued by participating Nordic Walking UK Instructors and groups, like ourselves. Our Beginner classes are a standardised format that covers basic technique and makes sure you master how to Nordic walk at the correct level in order to achieve your own personal goals. It means we know you are Nordic Walking with confidence and it proves you have reached the standard to be able to join in with no further tuition and that a fully qualified Instructor has completed a health check and taught you the correct level of Nordic walking for you.
Freedom Passport holders have the FREEDOM to join other groups when on holiday for instance or perhaps access lunchtime walks in one area near to their place of work and others nearer to home in the evenings and weekends. Many Freedom Passport holders simply enjoy the FREEDOM to choose from a range of supervised inspirational walks with their local participating Instructors, like us.
We would like you to support the work of BBOWT, who are the charity running the centre. By becoming a member of your local Wildlife Trust today, you will not only be helping to look after havens for wildlife and protect rare species at risk from vanishing, but you will also be giving all local people, especially children, a chance to explore and connect with nature. Just pop into the cafe and apply in person. This will also entitle you to use the car park.
