WALX Coast and Country December 2019 Newsletter



This months’ walker of the Month for Coast goes to Michael. He has taken the elements head on and walked in all conditions. Not only does he regularly get soaked with us, he then has to take the dog out. He always has a quiet smile on his face and is a pleasure to get muddy with.


This months’ walker of the Month for Country goes to Lisa. She got up to find somebody had catapulted something through her car window but arranged a lift in a short time to make the walk. That is true commitment!


Don’t’ forget to book your Xmas walk. There will be fun and games, which takes some planning. It would be great if you could book now to give us an idea on numbers.

Last year we put together a social committee.

I would like to say thank you to Maz, Pete, Patsy, Linda, Geoff, Clare and Jeanette.

We are looking for new members for 2020. This year we are asking different committee members to take the lead on the different events. The programme would be:

  • Bi Monthly social drink – different venues
  • Xmas Meal
  • Summer BBQ
  • Picnic Walk

You would not be required to do all of the events and we would have a different lead supported by another members for each event.

If you are interested, please email me denise@nordicwalking.co.uk
