Dear Members,

We appreciate how worried you may be feeling with the ongoing uncertainty about the pandemic and the imminent easing of lockdown. We are sharing some of the things you can try that could help. Click here for guidance from Mind, the Mental Health Charity, about coronavirus and wellbeing. You can also find more information on the England Athletics site and some additional tips  here about returning to sport after lockdown.


The track will be reopening on Tuesday 13th April, by invitation only. There will be a maximum of 12 people per coach. Please do not return to the track unless you have been invited to attend by your coach and assigned a time slot. More information will be sent out closer to the date.


As you know Graham Ingram died in January. He was a much-loved member of the club and veteran official. Graham was known for always encouraging athletes and celebrating their achievements. His family asked for donations in his memory to support junior athletes in the club.

With this request in mind, we will be setting up a Graham Ingram Memorial award. Anyone who would still like to contribute can send donations via Judith Carder, our treasurer. Please contact Judith by email .


Please renew your membership if you have not already done so. If renewal will cause any financial hardship please apply to our COVID-19 athlete support fund. 


The Club’s AGM will take place on Friday 28th May via Zoom. Details will be sent out closer to the date.
