An aMAZEing Mini-Marathon on Saturday 13th April, starting at 10.30a.m. from the Maze


This went exceptionally well and £300 was raised – well done to Gloria and Dennis for arranging and to all who took part to make it such a successful event.

An Invitation from Gloria Whight:

On May 10th 2003 I did The Moonwalk in London, and the Village generously sponsored me during my training by doing a village moonwalk around the Buttonhole. This year I am asking you to sponsor Siobhan Reilly, a young Wing resident, who is currently training to take part in The London Marathon for her chosen Charity – The Woodland Trust. I am, therefore, inviting and challenging you to take part in an aMAZEing Mini-Marathon on Saturday 13th April, starting at 10.30a.m. from the Maze and finishing there for a mini-brunch. Siobhan will be joining you – the walkers, runners, cyclists, dog walkers, etc. – as part of her training.

Please support this event.

We suggest a minimum donation of £5, please.

The Woodland Trust is the U.K.’s largest Conservation Charity, which protects, creates and restores the U.K.’s woodland for the benefit of people and wildlife
