NEXT CHARITY WALK – 6th April, keep the date free. Raising money for Maggie’s Centre in Oxford we are walking from Burford through gorgeous countryside and plenty of coffee or lunch opportunities at the end! The walk will start at 9am so that we can beat the shoppers as we are meeting at the car park by the ducks 👍😍. The walk is around 6-7 miles long with some stiles. Let me know if you can make it, it promises to be a fantastic walk, let’s raise some money for this brilliant charity and enjoy ourselves at the same time 😊😍.
Gale force winds forecast for tomorrow (8th February) keep an eye on ‘next week’s classes’ page in case I have to cancel, fingers crossed it calms down.
Well the year is flying by already! Plans are being worked on for a charity walk in aid of a Parkinsons UK for the spring, details will be on here when we have finalised them.

SLIGHT CHANGE TO THE CHRISTMAS WALK:
CHRISTMAS WALK IS ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 15th STARTING AT THE ROSE REVIVED. It is a 5 mile route with coffee / tea and cake at The Rose Revived at the end. Please let me know if you can make it as I will need numbers for the pub.
I need numbers this week for the Christmas meal please. Menu choices and payment need to be in by 21st November
Please click on the link below to tick your menu choices:
Gloves will be available by the end of November, £16 a pair, a fantastic Christmas present especially for Nordic Walkers as they are thin enough to wear underneath pole glove. There are only 20 pairs altogether available before Christmas, so first come first served. Designs are shown below.
As we come into the potentially (more than likely,) wetter weather people have been asking about waterproof socks – I have found Sealskinz to be the best but I have also found Dexshell to be good too. Alternatively we can all squish along and see who can squish the loudest 🤣🤪
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Children In Need Ramble appeal last week. We raised £306 between us all! 👍👍❤️❤️
Back from summer hols (well moving house hols really!) and raring to go!

My thoughts are now turned towards the Christmas walk which is turning into a bit of an ‘event not to be missed on the calendar!’ This year it is on Saturday 16th December. We are starting from the White Hart car park at Fyfield (OX13 5LW) at 9am and walking to, and then alongside, the Thames to the Maybush for coffee and cake before walking back. Don’t forget to tinsel up your poles and get those Christmas jumpers, hats and anything else Christmassy that you can find and let’s get out and have a Nordic walkingly good time with lots of chat and Christmas cheer! Please let me know if you can make it so I can arrange enough cake! Forgot to say this years walk is in aid of The October Club which is an Alzheimer’s Day Care Centre in Wantage. Donations gratefully received rather than payment for the walk.
Just a very quick update on this morning’s Children in Need walk – so far the total we raised is standing at £173.50!! Well done and thank you to everyone who came along and donated
There will be a Nordic Walk for Children in Need on Thursday 16th November, this will be instead of the usual Thursday walk so you won’t be able to use your payment cards, instead I will be accepting donations for Children in Need. More details to follow soon.
There will be no Circuits on Thursday 16th November and no Nordic walks on Friday 17th, Saturday 18th or Monday 20th. LBT WILL be taking place on Monday 20th.
The next technique taster on November 4th so let everyone know. Booking is essential for these.
I am looking at trialling some short 15 minute 1:1 technique lessons before some of the classes, these would focus on one aspect of an individual’s technique and instruction on how they could improve it. Sessions would cost £5. Please let me know if you would be interested in taking part
A few dates for your diaries with more details to follow nearer the events:
The Christmas meal will be on Wednesday 13th December at 6.30pm and is going to be at The Greyhound in Besselsleigh this year. We have the whole of the conservatory to ourselves, it promises to be a great night so get the date booked in! The Christmas walk will be on Saturday 16th December starting at 9.00am so come with tinselled up poles and a festive hat and in fine voice!
