Past Events

An evening with James Ketchell

Atlantic oarsmen and conqueror of Everest James Ketchell made a return visit to the Group on
27 September 2011 to talk about his experiences climbing Mount Everest. I think that everyone who attended will agree that it was both a fascinating and motivating insight into James's journey!

St George's Day 2011

Thank you to those of you who attended the St George's Day event on Sunday (17 April). You all looked extremely smart marching through the gardens and I think you'll agree that the top of the castle mound was a lovely sunny spot for renewing our promises!

Waitrose Bag Pack Fundraiser

On Saturday 4th December 2010 members of the Group packed bags at Waitrose in Bishops Stortford. You'll be pleased to hear that we raised in excess of £190 in the hour and a half we were there - a worthwhile exercise I'm sure you'll agree! A big thank you to everybody who took part.

We are delighted to have been granted planning permission to redevelop the Group Headquarters building off Heath Row in Bishops Stortford.
