April 2012?

Oh..and what happened to April? I've somehow lost a month! My guess is it probably drowned! April 2012 was the coldest April since 1989,  the dullest since 1998 and the wettest since 2000. There has been only three Wetter Aprils in 285 years of records in England, Wales and across the UK as a whole. It as been the wettest April for at least a century . The Leggies did however make the most of the few 'windows of opportunity ' when the rain did stop, or we carried on regardless when it didn't!

While the paths were slowly turning into mud baths and new springs and tiny waterfalls appeared at Hockley Wood, we did get to see the bluebells at their best on several occasions, and also  the very first Wild Orchid that  had nudged it's  way to the surface in Lincewood.  
We had seven graduates this. Welcome to Val, Nichola, Michelle, Paul, Donna, Alan and Marion, we  look forward to seeing then all on our walks, I hope they don't get put off by the rain they are not quite as addicted as us old regulars!

Walk of the month
For me  this has to go to the Sunday Morning Bluebell Walk which also happened to coincide with the introduction of the Sunday Stroller at 9:15 before the Leg stretcher at 10:15. It was great to see so many turn out for both walks and I will be making both a regular feature on a Sunday if the demand is there.

The Alternative Olympic Legacy 'Free Activity Taster' (FAT Taster !) Update 
In spite of the rain 7 people tried Nordic Walking for the very first time and all are taking part in the  Nordic Walking techniques course in May, YEY! 

I am also giving Free Tasters and Consultations for Pilates  and Exercise Referral From now on  I am also  going to include these Free sessions in my monthly totals as both are encouraging people to try an activity that may lead to a more active and healthy lifestyle!

That brings my total FREE TASTERS too 99. This breaks down to 87 Nordic Walking Tasters, 7 Pilate's Back to Basics and 5 Exercise Referrals.Giving me a total of 901 to do. 

Please refer all your friends and family to and get them to register for their FREE TASTER SESSION. You never know it could change their life. It's also a great way for people to build confidence and see if it is something they would enjoy.

Keeeeeep walking and talking about the FREE TASTER's!

See you all soon SH
