Ashley learned to Nordic walk in 2005 while living in Switzerland and loved how it was a great alternative to running for fitness and calorie burn as well as making those longer hikes much easier! Deciding that she wanted to share her passion for Nordic walking with others, Ashley trained to be an instructor with NWUK in 2015.
Since then she has built up a great group of walkers in the local area who enjoy walks in the downs, on the Kennet and Avon canal and exploring the many areas of outstanding natural beauty in the North Wessex Downs and Pewsey Vale.
