With the New Year started you may have started failing New Year resolutions, but how about some New Year resolutions for the Outdoors? It’s a great chance to use some kit you may have been given over the festive period or use some vouchers / money to get some new gear.

So here are 5 easy outdoor New Year resolutions.

  1. Go out for a walk to the shops / to work or just on an evening once a week.
  2. Once a month a walk in the country side.
  3. Try at least 5 new walking locations in the next year.
  4. Climb one of the three highest peaks in the UK.
  5. Get another person who wants to exercise more into the outdoors, be their guide.

Nothing too taxing and all could contribute to the most popular New Year Resolution to get fit!

Wanted: men for speed dating at Anglesey walking festival

The Isle of Anglesey Walking Festival is due to start this Saturday (May 29th) until June 13th. On the evening of June 3rd, organisers of the festival are holding a speed dating walk.

During the speed dating walk, a man and a woman will be paired up for 10 minutes of the walk before they change partners. At the end of the walk, you even get a glass of wine. At present, the number of women signing up to the event is outnumbering the number of registered men. There are half as many men as women.

So, if you’re interested and fancy a romantic stroll to watch the sunset, get yourself down there. You never know, you may find the love of your life!
