After having been introduced to Nordic Walking in 2015 I immediately knew I found the ideal exercise for me and was keen to find a local group. I saw a new sociable site to becoming fit by being in our beautiful countryside, the opposite to being enclosed by four walls of a stuffy gym.
Passionate to be more people being active and have fun doing so with our fantastic Nordic Walking club.
