Plessey Wood Nordic Walk

Plessey Wood Nordic Walk

Sat 4th November 2017

The weather was beautiful for the time of year, everyone met up at Plessey Wood Country Park.  A lot of regulars and a couple of returning walkers (Russell, Alison, Georgia and Jill), including Sharon one of our fabulous volunteers who has just returned after injury (not walk related) and 2 newbies, David and Jill.  It was good to see Bob back (after his foot operation) too.

Poles handed out, warm up done and off we set with Martin at the front and Ruth at the back.  First up we skirted the outskirts of the country park, passing the totem poles, fairy doors in the trees and what looks like the remnants of an old building.

We headed along the river through the woods under the viaduct and to the A1, where we turned back and retraced our steps back to the Country Park.  We past a wooden set of drums and Martin was the first to try them out closely followed by Chris who was joined by Ruth (on guitar), Claire (on flute), Russell (on saxophone) and Mal (on trumpet) watch out for the Nordic Nuts on Tour.

We thought the cafe was going to be closed so Martin had made brownies and cheesecake (especially for Russell's birthday).  Ruth made lemon drizzle cake and Marilyn made dairy free cookies.  All of the cakes went down a storm with Chris taking some home for her hubby and Bob taking a goody bag home.

I hope everyone enjoyed the day.

Thank you to Martin, Ruth and Sharon for their fab work (and cakes).  Thanks to Russell for the 108 photographs.

Next walk is 9th December to the Christmas Tree on Simonside, which is sold out.

I hope to see everyone in 2018,
