After a harsh winter, lots of people will be looking for some spring respite.
Horsham District Council’s Leisure Link Nordic walking instructor, Linda Edwards, has put together a programme of Nordic walks, which might just help people come out of hibernation and enjoy the great outdoors again.
Nordic walking is a variation on normal walking, which involves using specialised poles to help propulsion and give a workout for both the lower and upper body
There are a number of free taster sessions and four week technique courses lined up both in Horsham Park in Horsham and Cowfold Recreation Ground in Cowfold. Sign up and stride out!
