The 2021 Season has ended.

 

Well it was a funny old year as Arkwright might have said standing outside his corner shop on new years eve. For us this was especially true following lock down (house arrest) delayed freedom day (no remission for good behavoir) and now shortages (funny Christmas on the horizon). But we did finally manage a shortened Summer season that ended on the 10th of Octobers public running day. It looks like that you did enjoy yourselves, we certainly did having only had one day interrupted by bad weather. It was the first one of course, typical but we were bleesed thereafter. For the final one the weather held good as promised although there was a certain chill in the air, we were kept busy and the canteen ladies were rushed off their feet. Many thanks to them of course, they worked hard throughout all the running days, even the damp one just mentioned.

So what's next you ask?

 

Well Santa will be with us on Sunday 12th December for the Santa Run that will start at 11 am and continue through to 3pm so as ever all will be welcome, There is no need to book up anything or seek tickets in advance,  just come along as usual and thank you all for your support and loyalty throughout this year and a warm welcome to those who have discovered us for the first time.

 

 

 

After that we expect to ready for 2022 starting off in April, details to follow nearer the time

 

 

Charity Day 2021 was in aid of Ferring Country Centre

 

On the morning of Wednesday 20th October we welcomed staff and users of Ferring Country Centre to Field Place where we were very happy to present them with a cheque for £1,000 that our Charity Day in September was able to raise on their behalf.

 

This is something we do every year for a worthy cause, preferably a locally based one.

 

Last year was cancelled, (we all know the reasons why) so we were overjoyed to be able to carry out our promise carried over from 2020.

Having just broken one of the "A" frames that support the track our Chief Mechanical Engineer tells astonished members the size of the hammer he was using.

 

(He later recorded the mis-hap being due to a new but uncalibrated hammer.)

We are in the North West corner of Field |Place, beyond the Tennis Courts. I suggest that you use the first Car Park entrance on the Right after enetering Field Place having gone past the indoor bowling club on your left. Go through to the second part of the car park and from there there's a fairly direct footpath by the bowling greens on your left up to the footbridge access to the club house as ground level access to the track and clubhouse is closed off on public running days. However, there is a buggy park by our entrance and disabled acccess is provided should it be needed.
