Walking back to Happiness May 09 2022

We were asked to write an article about Nordic Walking and Mental Health by the  Sports and Recreation Alliance to mark National Walking Month and Mental Health Awareness Week. We focused specifically on loneliness as we know what wonderful social spaces our classes are. Having recently attended a class in Shipley Country Park, Office Manager Ella Ferris said, "It's clear that what started as an exercise class full of strangers is now a close group of friends. The walks are wonderfully social and it was lovely that everyone stayed to continue the chat over a cuppa." 

You can read the article here but we'd like to hear from you directly if you have a story to share about Nordic Walking and how it has impacted on Mental Health.
