Boom! April is in the room!
Shhh! There is a rumour going around the met office that we are due a gorgeous April! Have you got your diary open and booked in for our walks to spoil yourself with?
There is our Good Friday Easter walk – a wee bimble from Newbury to Theale. It is open to Non Nordic walkers too so why not make a family occasion of it. There are also additional options you can factor in such as getting on a train or cadging a lift to or from the various bridges and stations we pass by.
Keep up to date with our news on Facebook – please do like both of our Facebook pages; one for Nordic walking and one for our Canicross dog stuff. That’s where we share our photos, tips and stories to keep you inspired. Do engage and interact with us and share with your friends and family.
