Don't forget all the exercise you are doing at home can go towards your Round the World Challenge, I know you haven't got your passports and t-shirts yet but if you or someone writes down the exercise and how long you are doing it for down it can all be added to your passports when we receive them and go towards your goals.

Harpenden House Update – 1st August 2019 

Nottingham Mencap is planning to move from Harpenden House.  It really is beyond repair and we have no security of tenure so are unable to invest in the site.  You may have seen in the ‘News’, we are in negotiation with Nottingham City Council to acquire Edwards Lane Community Centre.  This is within Peggy’s Park and is only a very short distance from our current home.
