Week ahead 17/July

New Nordic walkers Daniella and Franscesca all qualified with the Village polers this week, watch out more lemon squashers about!!

Taster sessions as normal this week, one hour before regular walk, and club meetings at Battersea the same

Tuesday 18th 1830

Sunday 23rd - this is Triathlon day and east London roads will have severe restrictions, we have in previous years kept the session going, but it has been difficult getting to Victoria dock, there is no nordic walking session this Sunday with the village polers because of the Triathlon———however for those who live local who are unaffected by the event meet at HARDY AVENUE AT 1000 and we will head off as normal, let me know for numbers.

We have also entered the zone where various holidays are taking place, if I do not see you in a previous week let me know by e mail or txt if you are coming nordic walking so that i know the numbers and can pre organise the session with what we will be doing.

To cut down on unwanted e mails I have decided to remove anyone form the distribution list if I have not seen you at a club session for 4 months, obviously if you do want to be kept in the loop then let me know and I will carry on e mailing you, Note this is from my list, if you want to stop receiving info from NWUK you will have to unsubscribe form them yourself.


Possibility of heading down to ‘Bandit Country” - speaking Caron and Wendy (village polers) about a nordic walking trip to RSPB Rainham, Let me know if interested, and also if you can carry someone in your car,

we will meet 0900, at Britannia village hall, pick everyone up and head off in convoy
The sessions is a normal cost
The walk should be approx 2 hours
cafe when finished

Be Safe,take care



Tuesday 11th - Battersea Polers at 1830 - 2000

Sunday 16th - Royal Docks Village polers at 1000-1130

Taster sessions take place one hour before each club meeting

This week the weather is reducing in temperature but still remember to hydrate regularly and bring along water to sessions
The road works which affected us in the East at the weekend should be finished by next weekend

Sunday 16th session will complete at the Good Hotel where we will take on liquids at the terrace bar overlooking Victoria Dock, so the session will have to be working up a sweat!!

The Lesu turtle bag will be making regular appearances over the next month as it is now being tested before going into production, mt nordic walkers are the testers so all feedback is more than welcome and any questions also

Looking ahead - Triathlon weekend is jULY 21/22, the previous years we have only Nordic Walked if numbers confirm as the area is a complete pain with road closures, check calendars and let me know if you are attending the Sunday session

Finally a thank you to the leaders who took the sessions whilst  the china trip was taking place

Take care and see you all soon
