Nordic Walking Sessions at Lyme – Come and Join Us!

We held our first Nordic Walking lesson at Lyme Regis on 7th January. Gillian took us through our paces, introducing the basic steps and techniques, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the ladies who took part – lots of smiling faces at the end of the session! Then it was back to the football club for homemade soup and bread, a cuppa and a chat.

There are 4 more sessions planned – the next is on 4th Feb, then 18th Feb, 4th & 11th March. Each session starts at 12.30, and everyone is welcome to stay on for lunch and the drop-in session. These sessions are free, we just ask for a donation towards the cost of lunch. Look forward to seeing you there! Please email  if you’d like any further information, or to register to attend.

Recommended Reading
We are currently building a library which is available to anyone attending our drop-in sessions. The library contains books on a variety of topics, all of which are aimed at helping people living with and beyond cancer. 

Our recommendation for this month is The Rainbow Diet: And How it Can Help You Beat Cancer Paperback by Chris Woollams.

An excellent book which gives plenty of information to help make choices regarding your diet. Lots of ideas and top tips!
