The social group has held on to its title for the best group in the region for a second year in a row. Redbridge 18 Plus, which organises events, trips and outings for 18 to 40 year olds, is part of a national network. It won three trophies at the East Anglia region conference Best Group, the Roy Gordon Trophy, for success in events, and the Footsore trophy for supporting other 18 plus groups. Co-chairman Francesca Barclay winning the Andy Pitkin trophy for her individual contribution was the icing on the cake. She said: "It was fantastic to win the trophies, particularly the Best Group award two years running. "It just shows the great enthusiasm of the group's members, who deserve credit for this success, and the friendly atmosphere within the club." The group meets on Fridays at Redbridge Central Library, in Clements Road, llford, at 8.30pm.
