Joy Howitt(1)I’t's great news; as the summer deepens, the range of options for great walks gets bigger and so does our team at East Devon Health and Fitness. We are delighted to welcome Joy Howitt, who just recently successfully completed her Nordic Walking ‘Community Walk Leader Course’ and will be leading some of East Devon Nordic Walking walks, starting with evening walks; details are in your July Nordic walking schedule.

Whilst on the course Joy was given a valuable piece of information regarding the emergency services – ‘how to contact the emergency services if you find yourself in an area where you have no signal’.

By registering your mobile phone (before you venture out) with the service below; should you find yourself in a position where you need the emergency services with no available signal the service below has a unique way of using any available signal to forward your 999 request.

I have included the details on my resources page.

Earlier in the summer Lindsay successfully completed two days of specialist training and achieved her Level 2 Outdoor first aid course with the Association of First Aiders.

 Later this summer Lindsay will be taking a well-earned holiday (during the first three weeks of August).  Never fear Joy will be leading the Nordic Walking during this period.
