We hope you are all enjoying the fine summer weather and some warm and sunny parkrun fun. We continue to have some great turnouts and our average number of runners has now sneaked up over 145 per week.
As the summer holiday season continues it does mean that a few of our regular volunteers and run directors are away at weekends – I was up at Thurso parkrun on Saturday gone. Could you please consider volunteering to help fill the gaps? We cannot do parkrun without volunteers and could have to cancel if we do not get enough volunteers to help us stage a safe run.
If you are a regular or experienced volunteer then maybe consider stepping up to be a run director? As with the volunteer roles we need a run director every week and this role is being done by a small group of individuals – so a few more names would be very welcome.
A few months ago we received a fabulous donation towards a defibrillator – we did ask for further donations and received a few but we are still a little short of the money required to buy our own so can we please ask once again for donations and hopefully we can get this piece of equipment really soon? Please got to the tab “About us” and follow the links to donate. Thanks in advance. Let’s hope we never need to use the kit!
Car Park news
This week the RD was asked to remind folks that parking charges now apply in the park and you must get a ticket. You must also get a ticket even if using the free first 30 minutes. Please comply with these regulations to avoid getting a fine and if there is frequent flouting of the parking regulations our use of the park could be threatened.
