Geoff continues his good work on the latest section of track to undergo replacement. As ever, on such occasions an audience appears to see what is going on, to offer helpful advice or to generally discuss the state of the nation.
I am reminded of the opening lines of the poem by W H Davies
What is this life, if full of care
we have no time to stand and stare.
That bright light bathing the scene is the Sun. It has been known to shine, but not lately.

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.
