Nelson Leader : February 19th 2015
30 THE NELSON LEADER, FEBRUARY 19, 2015 NEWS Memories flow for leisure marchers M arching alongside old friends and competitors, leisure marchers from across the top of the South gathered in Nelson at the weekend for their annual event. Twelve teams took part in the event in the Hope Domain, which comes down to ‘‘self satisfaction’’ rather than competition, The Grosvenor Golden Girls team member Eleanor Duncan said. ‘‘The leisure marching is all about fun, friendship and fitness, it’s nothing judged, we don’t need that when we’re in our 60s and 70s.’’ Duncan said the marching was a great social thing for the women, a couple of whom had marched together for decades. ‘‘I was marching with three other women [in her team] when we were 16 and now we are 75. ‘‘It reminds us all of when we were 15 or 16.’’ Next year’s event will be held in Westport.
