Who’s excited for the new season? After being cooped up all winter, we can’t wait to get outside and feel the sun on our faces. And no, that doesn’t have to mean dragging yourself out for a run – did you know that just breathing the fresh air can reduce stress and increase happiness? So get outside and rediscover that spring in your step.
HIKE TO HAPPINESS
Bolton is lucky to have some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK right on its doorstep. Walk for miles across the West Pennine Moors, admire the views at Halcombe Moor or follow the South Pennine Water Trail along Rochdale Canal for some stunning escapism. While you’re at it, take a pit-stop in a country pub for some well-deserved pub grub – yum!
This spring, grab an Ordinance Survey map and get your boots on – and if you don’t have the right footwear, head over to Trespass at Market Place Bolton first for all your walking essentials (waterproof jacket recommended!).
EXPLORE YOUR SURROUNDINGS
When was the last time you visited a new town or city in the UK just BECAUSE? York, Liverpool, Blackpool and Sheffield (and many more small towns and villages) are all do-able within a day, and you never know what you might discover. From quirky shops and cafés, to museums and historical buildings, roam free and see where it leads you!
Make sure you have shoes to suit the occasion – comfortable enough to walk in, yet smart enough for a spontaneous meal out or trip to a local show. Check out Clarks’ spring/summer range for soft, supportive essentials with a contemporary twist that will keep you smiling from day to night.
Get your mates together and celebrate the improved weather with some fun in the fresh air! How about a game of footie in the local park, an afternoon cycling, or a yoga session with the sun on your face? Outside activities are a great excuse to get the gang together and have a giggle – and don’t forget to pack a picnic! Now, where did you hide those tennis rackets?
Whatever activity you have planned, JD Sports at Market Place Bolton is your home for activewear – from running shoes and trainers to hoodies, leggings and accessories, get your spring sports wardrobe sorted.
What are you waiting for? Get outside and try something new – there’s no time like the present!
