Event number 116
17th October 2015
Last Saturday we celebrated 2 of our members reaching their 50th milestone. Congratulations to Eva and Nhung! We helped them celebrate by eating chocolate cake (baked by Eva's husband, Mick) and also fruit that was generously provided by Aveley IGA.
This coming Saturday we are celebrating kids week by getting the kids to 'run' parkrun - we have 11 children who put up their hands to volunteer and help out. They will take on all the volunteer roles, including run director and it should be a fantastic day! We do have room for one more child to take photographs, so if you can help, please send us an email.
