PUBLISHED: 14:26 14 May 2013 | UPDATED: 14:26 14 May 2013

A Woodford Green woman is organising a host of free activities to celebrate World Nordic Walking Day on Sunday (May 19).

Nikkii Barnett, 42, of Mornington Road, runs the Nordic Walking East London and Essex group and has arranged walks starting in north Chingford and heading in to Epping Forest and Woodford Green.

The energetic style of walking uses poles.

“It creates a complete body work-out,” according to Nikkii.

Activities will run from 9.45am to 6pm and include taster sessions, one to two hour walks and technique refreshers.
