The Great Wall of China Trek is set to take place 17 – 25 Independent co-educational
September 2010. The Great Wall attracts over a million day school and nursery
visitors each year. However, the vast majority of tourists for 2 - 11 year olds
visit just a small section of the Wall near Beijing. The St
Clare Hospice group will follow a route well beyond the Creating Opportunities
regular tourist trail. They will trek along some of the most Realizing Potential
spectacular sections of the Wall and through remote
villages seldom visited by foreigners. This is a once in a Living Life to the Full!
lifetime opportunity to experience the real China.

I read the article written by Sam Cook about fund

raising for his expedition to Uganda.

Please support him by offering him small jobs for some


Our daughter, Mani, went on a similar expedition to

Namibia in 2005, which became a reality for her

because of the support of all the people in the village.

She had never pulled a blade of grass from the garden,

but for raising money for her trip, she picked weeds in

someone's garden, she helped with car parking at a

wedding & did a sponsored walk to Chelmsford.

The experience she gained at the expedition has taught

her many life skills which children in the west

generally do not get, until they go on expeditions.

Children should know that money does not come

without putting effort & time. They experience first

hand, how many people live, the diverse cultures,

respect for others, team work & putting others before

All young people should be encouraged to volunteer

for furniture assembly others without expecting reward. This will make them

Like hundreds of football teams across the country,
Hatfield Heath School FC has had an extended winter

Having thumped Takeley in their final game before the
Christmas break, the players’ rest over the festive period
was elongated when the ice and snow put paid to West
Essex League fixtures.

The side, managed by Mr Clements, has had a solid
campaign so far, and as Heath Sport went to press, they
were eagerly awaiting their return to action.

Local rivals Howe Green are again looking strong this
season, and Hatfield Heath will certainly have their work
cut out when they play the return match in the coming

The first meeting between the sides this season ended
2-1 in Howe Green’s favour. Hatfield Heath’s goal came
courtesy of Tom Winfield.

The team is defending the league title, having won the
competition for the last three seasons in a row.

Fixtures for the second half of the season will be
announced shortly, and published in Heath Sport.
