The Gable End
For too long the gable end over our platform looked what could be politely described as shabby. We did consider painting it and even bought the paint but to be honest
it was too far gone. So yesterday (18th Sept), having had cladding delivered and then scrounged the loan of a scaffold tower it was attacked by club members who in glorious Autumn Sunshine did what
needed to be done. It now looks the part and we have plenty of paint to decorate the interior during the coming
Sunday 22nd September
Charity day was a great success and the weather helped especially. No final figures as yet as we have to confirm what the bank with the blue eagle will add to the total but we expect it to be around the £2,000 mark for Guild Care.
So, back to our standard times of 2 until 5 for Sunday 22nd when we will be out in force again.
Sunday 29th September, Green Dreams Day
One of the extra days in our calendar. It co-incides with the event hosted with Field Place, further details on their website, we will be running from 10:30 until 4 so come along and discover us or rediscover us if you already have.
The full schedule for this year is shown on the public running page where you can also download a copy should you so wish.

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.
