We look forward to seeing you again!

Thank you for 4 great 1:1 Nordik sessions. Although I had walked before, it was great to have a proper refresher course and I am now really looking forward to joining some group walks.I particularly enjoyed four different and contrasting walks - hard surfaces, soft surfaces, uphill, flat, woodland, open country -  and weren't we lucky to avoid the torrential rain!  Your knowledge of the local area is a real plus. I also think that your website is great, and I hope that it will encourage many others to join your group walks.

I meant to drop you a line about the course, and got waylaid (by life, the universe and everything). I really enjoyed your introduction to Nordic Walking, and feel that it's one step (or many) up from my usual morning walk, with the added upper-body workout; so thank you very much.

Just to thank you for a lovely walk and chat - It really made me feel good. Just being outside towns,shops etc…in the middle of the nature feels very refreshing.
It has opened me such a lovely outlet for more than one way; especially currently when I am still off work. I much prefer this to going to the gym!!

Feel fine today .... Really enjoyed it and think it might be my "thing" combines good exercise with outdoors, where I am most happy.
Many thanks for a very useful session yesterday I found it very helpful  and will endeavour to practise the correct technique
I so did enjoy our session yesterday. You do live in the most exquisite place…very lovely.
I think I will get a lot of pleasure from these Nordic walks
Totally loving the Nordic walking have been practicing
I can't think of anything better to do than walk in beautiful countryside with a really nice friendly group of people, of course we were blessed with amazing weather today but i feel sure the winter walks will give us much joy in its own way
Lovely walk. Super people. What more could one ask for. Thank you. D
I so enjoyed today. A big thank you for your efforts in organising the walk and lunch. I know a lot of effort had gone into making the day such a success. Ann

Having now been Nordic walking regularly for just over a year my fitness has improved to such an extent that I have now been able to reduce my intake of medication and insulin. Who says a pensioner has to grow old gracefully!

Hi there, thank you both for the excellent map reading and use of compass session last week it was very helpful. I too have certainly gained a lot from the Nordic Walking, and feel my fitness has improved, and appreciate the good company of fellow walkers and all the encouragement that you give.
I have walked with Anthea since 2015 and really enjoy being part of her very friendly group of Nordic walkers. Anthea has shown us so many beautiful walks around Henley which I would not otherwise have discovered, as well as further afield in the Chilterns. She has a good selection of walks each week when we benefit from her excellent local knowledge, and she regularly organises longer walks and trips to interesting places. We have walked the Shakespeare Way, the Oxfordshire Way and the Chiltern Way with her and her organisational skills in arranging these are second to none! Nordic walking is an excellent way to keep fit, and so enjoyable being out in the lovely countryside with good company. Anthea has taken us to the UK Nordic walking Festival in Dorset, and also organised walking holidays for us in the Lake District and Austria. This year we are going to Edinburgh for a week. I have made some very good friends since joining A Foot in the Chilterns and would highly recommend Nordic walking with Anthea.



Thank you so much for organising yesterday’s lunch. Heather has put it very well, it takes a lot of your time and effort and is much appreciated by us all. The setting was lovely, the weather fantastic and the food was good.
Hope today’s lunch is as good as for you all.
