So here we are in lockdown 3. Let’s hope it’s the last one! Hopefully it’ll be only a month, but by knowing what’s happening it actually helps us plan ahead, being proactive instead of reactive
The government is going to review the rules on 15 February, so all walks up to and including Friday 19 February have been cancelled. If you were booked onto a walk between now and then you will have received a full refund
In the meantime we’re going to do our best to keep you entertained and fit! Take a look below at the different classes we’ve got planned. These are open to (& suitable for) everyone, and you’re welcome to join whether you’re a Nordic walker or not. If you think online classes aren’t for you, why not give one a try? You might be surprised! All classes are free for Monthly Members, and there is a small fee for everyone else. All classes are listed on the booking system and you can book them all here
We will be adding our Move It To Lose It cardio sessions back to the timetable as soon as Jane can use her foot!
If there are any classes you’d like to see added, let Jane know and if we can we’ll add them to the timetable
Don’t forget you can also find lots of other classes via the NWUK/WALX Virtual Platform. There are pre-recorded workouts, as well as access to online sessions by instructors from around the country. If you’ve not used the platform before, click here for a handy video explaining how it works
We are running challenges to encourage you to get out and about. You can find out all about them on our facebook page (which you should be able to look at via the link, whether you’re on facebook or not)
Don’t forget, we have our Facebook NeWTs Members group and a WhatsApp group if you want to stay connected. Let us know if you want adding to the WhatsApp group
Approximately 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it, so here’s a summary of what we can and can’t do during lockdown.
– You must stay at home as much as possible
– You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:
– If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work
– If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work
– You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one)
– You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble
– You should not meet other people you do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason
– Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household
– The new strain of the virus is much more transmittable, so where social distancing is not possible, or inside shops, you should wear a mask (The World Health Organisation recommends 3 layers of fabric so just pulling that buff/neck warmer over your nose isn’t going to cut it)
– A face visor or shield may be worn in addition to a face covering but not instead of one. This is because face visors or shields do not adequately cover the nose and mouth.
If you have any questions, need any help, or need any local walking routes, please let us know
