Hi folks,

just wanted to give you a quick update and heads up for the coming weeks:

Next Thursday 17th August  I go on holiday to see family in the Czech Republic. I look forward to some Nordic walking in the Czech Republic. We are already looking at a holiday destination for later next year, to include walking, sightseeing, wine drinking, and more.

September Social – Friday 29th September – @ The Mill. French dining. Table booked for 8pm. We have 10 people already confirmed. I need to know in the next day or so if anyone else would like to attend. Please call Matt on 07530 813225 or on Facebook or via email. Based on interest we may also do a walk before the meal. £5 deposit required ASAP to confirm place. The meal price is £30 per person. All profits from the event go to the hospice.

26th August – Blackpool Illuminations walk 8pm. The event has now sold out, but if you would like to be there to support attendees from Nordic Walking Preston then please connect in the 1000 Friends Nordic Walking Facebook group, and/or visit this link for more details.

Xmas comes early !  We now have our Xmas Walk and Meal confirmed. The shenanigans shall commence on Sunday 3rd December with a walk from Fishwick Hall Golf Club, along the Guild Wheel and around Brockholes, before arriving back to the Golf Club for lunch. We are still unsure whether our little bundle of happiness will choose to arrive on her due date of the 10th, or perhaps want to join us for our Nordic Walking Preston Xmas meal. Meal price will be approx. £18 per person. Details will follow in coming weeks about deposits and menu choices.


Guild Wheel Week:

Wednesday 30th August – Guild Wheel Walk 2 hr from Anderton Arms. Car share to be organised. See booking link for more details.

Friday 1st September – Guild Wheel walk 4 hr. Join us for the 9:30am walk, and choose when you’d like to stop…or come with us all the way round. See the booking link for more details.

Friday 2nd September – Saturday morning walk from Barton Grange to Garstang and back to take advantage of the Food and Drink festival at Barton Grange. See the booking link for more details.

#GetPrestonActive week – Nordic Walking Preston is teaming up with ABL Health Central Lancs to support their aim to get more people in Preston active. Book as many walks as you can this week please.

Thursday 21st September PLEASE ALL keep the date free. Big event to raise awareness about walking for health in Preston. I would LOVE to see as many Nordic walkers as possible to walk ONE MILE. We hope to get some media coverage to raise further awareness about the need to #sitless and #movemore as well as highlighting the great group of Nordic walkers that you are. The ONE MILE WALK will be scheduled for 6:30pm at Avenham Park. We shall then go for a walk along the river and back around to The Continental, and perhaps a quick drink. See the booking link for more details.

Sunday 24th September – RUN PRESTON event. 10k challenge open to Nordic walkers. See this link to book your place. Once again I encourage ALL Nordic walkers from all around the Preston area to attend this event.
