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, thank you all for your support and loyalty throughout this year and 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

Autumn is lurking around the corner so this is the place to download the latest edition of the WDSME Newsletter.
Thre is a rumour that there is what the French would call a Faux Pas in the hard copy collected at the clubhouse or the one arriving courtesy of the Post Office. There's no prizes for anyone who spots it. However, if you feel offended or believe that a crime has been comitted and has been directed personally to you then redress can be found. Go to the members page where you can download an updated copy, alternatively, if you prefer you can download a single replacement page 4 should you feel the need.
Important Updates for members are on the members page regarding code of practice for public running

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.
