Angela is a Walx Guide for Walx Preston.
Angela Clarke joined a Learn To Nordic Walk session in November 2016. She admits that on joining it she had no intention of joining a walking group, but instead thought it was a way of participating in Saturday morning park runs at Avenham park, without putting the stress on her joints and sustaining injury as she had done while ‘jogging’ the free 5k park runs.
Angela was hooked from the first session and loved it so much that a year later she became a walk leader.
Angela was part of the Nordic Walking Preston delivery team and is looking forward to introducing more people to the group through Walx Preston.
As a Mental Heath Professional Angela appreciates the importance of physical activity and social inclusion, and believes that simple fun activities can improve person’s quality of life … at any age and at any ability level.
