Vanessa Papworth writes about a special Remembrance Sunday 10 mile run
Our Sunday morning Leader, organised a Sunday morning run with a difference for Remembrance Sunday.
Setting off from the bench at 7.30am, seven Chafford Hundred Running Group members, led by retired Army Major Trevor, completed a 10-mile run to eight of Thurrock’s War Memorials.
At each halt the group paid their respects and left a Poppy tribute commemorating all who have served, been injured, or died for our country.
The route took them to: 1. North Stifford memorial, 2. St Mary the Virgin North Stifford, 3. Turps Corner, Little Thurrock, 4. Holocaust memorial, 5. Grays town centre, 6. TS Cornwall, St Clements, 7. West Thurrock memorial and 8. Lt Kershaw memorial in Chafford Hundred.
