Chair persons report

  • Thanked parents for sticking with us throughout the Covid lockdowns and for attending the meeting tonight. Also for bringing their children every week to training, without their support there would be no club
  • Dauntsey school training session went well, enjoyed by athletes and coaches, and was well attended – thank you. The coaching team have a meeting arranged with Dauntsey school with a view to train there more often in the new year.
  • Competitions – due to covid opportunities have not been available over the past year but going forward hopefully these are now beginning to be available again. Junior Road Race League has begun again.  The club will ensure all dates are advertised in the termly newsletter and on our Facebook page.
  • Colin left the club in the last year. Colin was instrumental in starting the club and has been a key figure now for many years.  Although he will be greatly missed, we are in a good position to take the club forward and can always call on him for help an advice.  Colin is now concentrating on his other coaching ventures, and we wish him well for the future.
  • Matt also thanked Lesley, Mark, Michelle, Sam and Emily for their support with the club both coaching at weekly sessions and behind the scenes as well.
