Hibernation Gallery - share your photos

Posted on 27th Mar 2020


* Read the latest Club updates here or why not try one of our online workouts here *


Fitness and sport are our passions but we also love nature, and how it nurtures our bodies.  Here are some photos that our members have been sharing with us since Monday 23 March 2020. 


What outdoor views are you enjoying?   Would you like to share them with the rest of our Club community?


Each weekend we’ll share four, anonymously, on Facebook and ask visitors to vote for their favourite.  Photos will also be shared on Instagram for people to enjoy.  The winners will go into a “finalists” post at the end of hibernation and I’m sure we can sort out a fabulous prize for the winners and runners-up when we re-open! 


Not on Social Media?  You can still join us by re-visiting the this page weekly and enjoy the new additions to the page.  You could even send a photo or vote for your favourite if you want to join in the competition by emailing (please do not email our usual info@ address for Hibernation Gallery photos or votes).


This idea has been gifted to us by our Walking Group, led by our wonderful instructor Sandra.  If you know Sandra, you are welcome to text her your photos!  One of her regulars shared this quote, "Hear five sounds, see four colours, smell three scents, feel two sensations and think of one thing to be grateful for".  We loved that.
