Today we joined together with parkruns up and down the country to celebrate 70 years of the NHS. We personally thanked the 20 people in attendance who work for the NHS.

Valerie was the RD today and she gave out a number of statistics relating to the growth of GPs (16.8K in 1948, 41.8K in 2018), the growth of the budget (from £437M in 1948 to £110Bn in 2018). 44 million babies have been born on the NHS and people live (on average) 12 years longer than they did 70 years ago. Happy Birthday NHS! We asked for runners to leave a message for a person, ward or department that had delivered excellent service and these personal messages are now on their way to the people/wards/departments.

This week 188 people ran, jogged and walked the course. We welcomed 12 first timers to parkrun and we welcomed 25 visitors from the following parkruns; Chipping Sodbury, Grovelands, Durham, Bushy, Blackpark, Worcester and Ecos. We are still getting a good number of PBs and this week 34 runners recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 14 different clubs took part.

The event was made possible by 23 marvelously wonderful volunteers they were:

Ian YATES • Neil ADDISON • Andrew NICHOLSON • Huw SOLLY • Martin LIGHT • Poppy CRANE • Jeff KIRK • Nicola JAMES • James ADAMCZUK • Rohan ARCHER • Daryl ARCHER • Travis ARCHER • Selby ARCHER • Julia MADDOCKS • Giles ARCHER • Valerie LIGHT • Jules PEARSON • Becky O'BRIEN • Phil HAYWARD • Rita LINDSAY • Paul WILCOCK • John BELCHER • Nicola JOHNSON

Congratulations to the lovely Julie Trugeon for completing her 100th parkrun milestone. Julie has completed 91 of the 100 here at Chippenham. She joined in May 2014 and has made regular weekly appearances, if she wasn't running she was volunteering and has racked up a very impressive 189 volunteer sessions. Thank you and congratulations Julie!
