Saturday 22nd June 2019 Go Wild for Wetrooms!!

Team Acorn takes on the Equivalent of the English Channel at the Great East Swim

The Team of staff, volunteers and supporters are busy training ready to swim 21 miles in open water (the equivalent of the English Channel) between them at the Great East Swim.

Those who have signed up so far include people who haven’t swum for 10 years but are taking on the challenge to raise vital funds for adults with learning disabilities.
2019 is the year of the wet room at Acorn Village with current bathrooms requiring a complete update to meet the ever changing needs of the residents and tenants.

A mile swim is the equivalent of 64 lengths non-stop in a pool, however if it’s windy it will feel like a lot more than that.

Would you be willing to take the challenge and join the team?

Get in touch by emailing

Not a swimmer but still would like to support the brave team as they take on this challenge??
Then the team would be very grateful for your sponsorship.

Arranged by the local Rotary Manningtree group, this wonderful music in the walled garden event is back for a second year.

Perfect to bring a blanket and enjoy the beautiful surroundings whilst listening to toe-tapping tunes.

Last year people were up dancing around the buddleia and butterflies, so get a group of friends together and get your tickets for this enjoyable evening.
