Mind in Mid Herts Health Walk
Fancy Dress at Hertford Castle
By Dave Hobbs
Mind in Mid Herts arrived in Hertford in fancy dress with walkers completing 365 laps of the grounds of Hertford Castle during the worst weather for 20 years.
Gary Keates, our local community fireman and marathon runner started us off by running 40 laps in full uniform and has since gone on to complete the London Marathon for the 7th time but this time he took his partner with him and married her on the way.
Deputy Mayor (Mr Hertford) Peter Ruffles got us on our way and Fiona Warner, three time National Synchronised Skating Champion made the best of the conditions to join us for an entertaining start to our work in the County town.
Partnering with Harty and his colleagues from the British Heart Foundation the link between physical and emotional/mental wellbeing was made and our target was acheived with the help of all the wonderful people at Hertford Town Council who entered wonderfully into the spirit of the event and have provided us with the warmest possible welcome to the town.
