Other News

Club member Bill Phillips has the following message with regards to next Saturday's parkrun:

I hope to be at Dishley next Saturday for my 250th Park Run, following in the footsteps of Dawn Storer but much more slowly!

Only another 250 runs before I get the next T-shirt !!!

It would be great if as many of you as possible can turn out at Dishley to support Bill.
