NWP 01/04/18 – update

Good afternoon folks !!


Happy Easter.

Whether you were laughing, or confused.com, please note that my earlier email this morning was a blatant April Fool !

Excuse me if I caught you out. Many thanks for the posts and emails of concerns and well wishes on my future.

Please don’t think for a minute we would be closing Nordic Walking Preston down. It contains too much awesomeness, too many awesome people, too many awesome memories, too many walking opportunities that it simply would be a shame to close it down.

My future is here with you right now, to help, guide, assist, and facilitate movement in a fun way so that you can live your best life.

I am grateful for everyone who has shared my journey so far, and all of you who are now sharing our group journey to a later life with health, fun, laughs, joy and happiness.


It has been a real pleasure to experience the evenings this week in a ‘new light’ and we shall continue to provide a greater variety of walks from a greater variety of interesting locations where you will be suitably challenged to raise your heart rate and boost your wellbeing with both terrain, environmental conditions, location, company, communication, and collaboration.


PLEASE DO NOTE that in light of upcoming GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) changes affecting the way businesses in the EU communicate via email I SHALL be closing TWO of our Mailchimp email lists. If you are on our General email list you may never have even tried Nordic walking with us yet. If you are on our Taster list then you will have completed a taster session in the past.

We shall be using Mailchimp GDPR compliant forms to encourage you to make your own choice as to whether you wish to continue receiving emails from Nordic Walking Preston and Matt Gibbs. This process will be taking place later in April. It would be a shame to see you go, and much better in fact for you to join our group out walking, but the final decision to stay on our email lists will remain with you.

If you have a Freedom Passport already or are a monthly member we will be sending out different emails to you.



Join us on Easter Monday for an evening exploring Cuerden Valley Park !
