Thank you to Andy Yarrow, Carol Yarrow, Nathy Feely, Simon Crute, Rachel Clempson , Becky Wood & Stephen Wood

from the general public and will hopefully see some new people at a club run very soon. If you see anyone new, make sure you say hello
and make them feel welcome.Well done to those that ran the Shinfield 10k yesterday and posted some good times.
