A guest speaker from the local branch of Samaritans will be joining us after the Thursday evening run at the social event at 8.00pm

We will be given an overview of the work of the Samaritans in helping people struggling to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings and the importance of small talk in helping people

Hopefully you can come along and gain an insight on some of the myths and facts around this difficult topic. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions in this informal setting

Harriers Challenge Race

Chester Marathon

Thurs 10
World Mental Health Day

Mental health problems can affect anyone on any day of the year but many are afraid to talk about mental health problems. 10th October is a great day to show your support for better mental health and wellbeing for yourself and in support for others. If you haven’t seen a friend or colleague for sometime why not give them a call to see how they are. Or, have a conversation with a trusted friend on how you feel and start to break down the stigma around difficult thoughts and feelings.
