On Friday 9 June @ 9.30am, we are going on a 10k running/walking tour to explore the City of London, the original Roman settlement and home of St Paul’s Cathedral and Southwark that boasts Shakespeare’s globe, Borough Market and much more.
On the tour there will be scandals and secrets a-plenty revealed at each of the 10 stops. The tour will be followed by a well deserved coffee and cake at a special location. All abilities are catered for but you must be comfortable running at least 5k.
This tour looks fabulous! The cost of the running/walking tour plus coffee/tea & cake after is £24. If you haven’t signed up yet but would like to attend please let me know.
Final numbers and payment will be required by mid-May as the required number of guides will have to be booked. At this point I’m afraid that there will be no refunds.
To celebrate International Pilates Day on Saturday 6 May, APPI are offering free massage, physio and ultrasound assessments and classes, but you need to book early to avoid disappointment!
