NWP News 15/04/2018

Good evening folks,


the year is flying by ! Some really great things are happening both with individuals within the group and behind the scenes.

I would like to praise the Social Committee and the Walk Leader team for their continued efforts in strengthening the foundations of our great group. Thank you !

Please note that if you have been absent for a while or are challenged with any aspect of your fitness, health or wellbeing, then reach out and let us know. We are more than happy to lend an ear, or give your arm a twist, or kick you up the proverbial backside, should that be the appropriate course of action.

  • Don’t forget to keep yourself hydrated ! Particularly as the hotter weather is approaching.
  • Kit yourself out with sunglasses and suncream.
  • If you are looking to modify and improve your eating habits and feel you need a little guidance or support, our new Glow Kickstart Plan is a great 28-day support program offered directly through NWUK.
  • Need more miles under your belt…get on more walks. Join the monthly membership so you’ve unlimited access to walks and Adventure walks.
  • Aches, pains, strains, or otherwise – reach out and I will put you in touch with our network of preferred specialists
  • Injured but want to keep in touch – come along to the end of our Saturday walk and join us for a cuppa.
  • Need extra advice, guidance, support, tips, coaching, or to get unstuck – join our monthly membership to access Sounding Board: free clinic for members.


Last week I particularly enjoyed the muddy walk around Healey Nab. It was also fabulous to end Friday’s walk at Cuerden Valley Park’s new cafe. A long time coming, but I am sure we will frequent this place as a group.

This week I look forward to the Nicky Nook walk and of course Sunday’s adventure walk.

Don’t let that fool you into thinking any of the other walks are less important. Every single walk I have done over the past 3 years has been special. Every single time I go out I aim to check and improve on my technique and posture, and become more aware of how I can absorb more sensory stimulation, whether that be the sound of birds, the smell of fresh air, the scent of blossom, running water, the colours of the flowers, a new cake to taste, or the laughter, conversation and insights from all our members.


New in:

We were road testing our new walkie talkies on Friday and Saturday.  Oh the fun we will have with this new kit.


Invitation Walk

Are you a regular walker with our group but haven’t yet walked with us on a Tuesday?

Please be welcome to also come along on Tuesday evening for a walk and a social drink. Try out the new area. Introduce yourselves to the new folk. Grab a drink. What’s not to love about all that?

Still not yet Nordic walking ? Or do you have friends, family, colleagues, or acquaintances who you know would enjoy walking with our group? Please invite them along to the Buckshaw Invitation Walk being held on Tuesday 17th April. Book a spot here.


Adventure Walk(s)

We have a great turnout for the Grasmere Adventure walk. There will be about 25 of us. We are also welcoming our “out of action or injured” friends. You can have a wander around Grasmere then take a shorter walk out to the beach where we will be stopping for our picnic lunch. Book here if you still fancy joining us.

We are now LIVE with our May Adventure Walk to Haworth. Find out more here.
