“I have never been a sporty type, but have always loved being out of doors and enjoy meeting new people. Back in 2008, a friend suggested doing a Nordic Walking taster session and I became immediately smitten. It has become a very important part of my life.

It doesn’t feel like exercise, but of course it is. The people I have met in the groups have been delightful. (I have a theory that only lovely people Nordic Walk.)  The other plus points are that both my posture and stamina have improved dramatically. I love being out in the countryside through the changing seasons.

Kerley is inspiring and very supportive. No matter what your level of fitness you are encouraged to enjoy and improve.”
