NWP News 9/09/2018

Good evening,

well, it’s been a mammoth week, with schools starting, getting back into the swing of things after holidays, talking at a round table event on the topic of mental health, and in one day delivering taster sessions to 80 hospital staff.


I took the day off today !


We spent the morning with Johnny’s swimming club at a Scavenger Hunt at Worden Park. Johnny and his friend, Leo, won the prize for best fancy dress, but no one was more shocked at their cross-dressing antics than his mother. I cannot for the life of me work out where he gets his ideas from.


Friday was an interesting session.  A walk at Moor Park, visiting the Wall of Pain (some will remember it fondly, no doubt), and then the cafe, and then the Observatory, as it was open as part of the Heritage weekend. Having walked around Moor Park and the Observatory for the past 3 years I was glad I took the time to visit the open Observatory to find out that it had been established back in the day by a Mr Gibbs.


Gut health:

You may have seen a post in the FB group this week about the Gut being called the Second Brain. It mentioned how important the gut is for our health and wellbeing, but also for communication with the brain in our heads. Essentially our thoughts, and even states of mental wellbeing can be affected by our gut, i.e. if we are not eating right, or we have inflammation in the gut from foods, or stress, then this can cause unhealthy, unhappy or “stinky” thinking.

I therefore challenge you to join our next Microbiome program.

This is a 3-week program that guides you to eat healthfully with natural wholefoods, but also to take a range of supplements that are supportive of accelerating the improvement of gut/microbiome health.

Members of the team have already had great results to energy levels, sleep patterns, weight, skin, health and fitness owing to combining the program with our regular Nordic walking.

If you feel you are ready for this then please contact Matt by phone, email, or PM (not the Prime Minister).


Purbeck Festival

This weekend I shall be away at the Purbeck Festival helping out with other instructors from across the country. An event with over 100 walks, and many classes, taster sessions and masterclasses requires a massive national team effort for NWUK. It will be a great event. It is a long way from home for NWP members to attend. This is why we hope you will pencil in joining us for the next Rustick Festival in Derbyshire around May time next year.

I therefore leave you in the capable hands of the Walk Leader team this weekend.


Here are your walks for this week:

Monday 18:45 – Chorley Wanderer – Astley Park


Tuesday 6:30 – Rising Stars – Moor Park


Tuesday 18:30 – Buckshaw Roamer – Tesco car park – Buckshaw


Wednesday 18:15 – Evening Workout Walk – Preston Docks


Friday 9:30am – Friday Roamer – Hurst Grange


Saturday 9:15 am – Rise and Shine – Avenham Park


Have a fantastic week. All the best.
