Dare I say it but it was almost starting to feel spring-like in Delamere this morning after several weeks of decidedly wintery weather.
The Forestry Commission had been at it again during the week – upgrading more of the paths to be super-smooth and puddle-free (although I did hear one voice behind me saying he preferred the mud and the potholes! – Gareth?).
Junior Eli Bradley earned the only Delamere t-shirt today for completing his 10th parkrun – well done!
And welcome again to our many tourists.
Tourists of the week must be Gillian and Michael Cook from Poole who chose Delamere to complete their 300th and 150th parkruns today!
It was also great to see visitors from Bolton, Chester, Haigh Woodland, Hatfield Forest, Horsham, Newcastle, Ormskirk, St Helens, Stretford & Wycombe Rye.
Thanks to everyone who turned up – especially our awesome volunteers – and see you all next week!
