We can now reveal the winners of the Pot Luck Grand National!  The race took place on Saturday and we had a perfect number of 39 entrants for the competition, and we took the last horse ourselves!  The winner was Mon Mome, owned by Carolyn Oldfield, so Carolyn has won £30.  There were two fallers at the first fence and after many slow-motion replays we came to the decision that Himalayan Trail fell first, owned by Gillian Duckworth, and Gillian has won a box of luxury chocolates.  So in the end we each had an Auntie win the prizes!!  A big thank you to everybody that took part in the competition.

On Friday there was an article about us in Teri's local newspaper, the Halstead Gazette.  There was even a mention of us on the front page  (there can't be a great deal of big news in Essex at the moment...!).  You can see a shortened version of the article by clicking on the link below.


We should also be making an appearance in Matt's local newspaper in the near future.

Some of you may have noticed the new 'Live Updates' page on our website.  This is so that when we are on the actual trek, we are able to text updates to our website and keep you informed on how we are getting on!  As you can see, Matt has been testing it over the last few days!

Thankyou for the chocolates - they are delicious.
Good luck on the Inca Trail.
