Get into Reading Groups
Our new group meets on Monday evenings, 6-8pm at Bush Fair, Harlow. For details on coming along to this or any of our other groups please see the Get into Reading page here.
A massive well done to the West Essex Runners for having turned up in the freezing, snowy weather on Sunday let along for having completed the course. Your commitment is inspiring. Alix Lewis, Kelly Dorrington, Deb Buter, Fiona Burgoyne, Sharon Wright and Andy Woodcock made up our dedicated team of runners - well done all of you, the rest of us are inspired and sincerely hope that you are warmed up and recovered. We will update you with how much their efforts have raised for West Essex Mind in due course. We will also share more photos as they become available but here is a fabulous one to start with...
