St Thomas

I’m delighted to supervise two volunteer walk leaders in Exeter, who lead walks for members of the local community who have participated in a funded course or workshop. These projects are supported by grant funding and the involvement of Active Devon, Cowick Roots and Recreation, and St Thomas Library.

Active Devon’s Connecting Actively to Nature Programme and The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund have generously provided grant funding, a group of Nordic walkers has formed supported by Cowick Roots and Recreation. The group is also supported by St Thomas Library, who hold a set of poles for walkers to borrow.

Meet some participants

Find out more from two participants, Ann and Kate, about why they chose to Nordic Walk.

Cllr Duncan Wood tried out Nordic Walking in February 2022 as part of his 12 Moves in 12 Months challenge. Following his first weekly session at Cowick Barton playing fields, here he describes how Nordic Walking can put a spring in your step.
