Nordic Walking: Christmas walk

The final Nordic walk of 2018 took place tonight with 16 walkers taking their poles around Maghull to view the Christmas lights. With antlers, Santa hats, and various Xmas head gear donned the group made a festive sight, stopping for a photo in front of a particularly lovely garden display. At the end of the walk the poles were stashed and we retired to Brenda’s house for the traditional Christmas drinks and supper. The walks resume on Monday 7th January at 10:15 for the morning walk, or Monday 14th January at 6:30pm  for the evening walk. Both walks start from Maghull Leisure Centre.

December walk

Eighteen intrepid walkers braved the rain today and completed a 5.5 mile walk around Burscough, trekking across muddy fields and paths before adjourning to the Hopvine for a lovely Christmas lunch. Thanks to Sue for leading the walk. Can I take the opportunity to thank all those who have recced and led walks throughout the year? Without the support of these people the group would not be able to function, and your help is very much appreciated, not only by me, but by everyone who goes on the walks. As notified the walking group takes another turn next year, when we split into Ramblers and Easy Walkers. Both groups will go out on Thursday 3rd January. Full details will be published here in the New Year.

Maths 4 Fun Christmas Games

Twelve of our group had a great time today with the maths of family games, honing our logic and spatial awareness skills ready for Christmas.

We tried Mobi, Blokus, Bedlam, Tantrix, and some old favourites like 3D noughts and crosses, Chinese Chequers and Connect 4. This is maths but not as you know it!

We will have a break in January and will meet again on Wednesday 6th February 2.30-4.30 at Kensington House. Why not come and join us?
