Dear Glasgow Volunteers,
I hope this reaches you well, and that you're enjoying the better weather after what feels like a long winter. Lots of local races and events going on to keep you motivated I hope. Remember we've also got a brand new parkrun in Glasgow in Tollcross park: http://www.parkrun.org.uk/tollcross
It's been a little while since we've sent out a volunteer appeal, so even though we've only a few slots left for this week, our roster in early June has plenty of slots free. You can see the available slots on our website at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/glasgow/futureroster if you fancy popping your name down. The Tollcross team are also in need of volunteers, their roster is at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/tollcross/futureroster
Another way you can help is to encourage parkrunners you might know to have a first go at helping. We're conscious that sometimes volunteering seems a bit intimidating, so please feel free to share your experiences hopefully to the contrary!
If you fancy doing that on social media we're on twitter @glasgowparkrun (http://twitter.com/glasgowparkrun) and facebook http://facebook.com/glasgowparkrun - or just have a chat to folk in the start area or registration queue next time you're along?
One other thing: Last year some of you might remember we tried to 'give something back' to Pollok park, but working with the park rangers on tackling the invasive Himalayan Balsam in the woods adjacent to our course. We're hoping to repeat the exercise this year, so please stay tuned to our news page and social media pages for more details. It will only require 20-30 minutes of your time after your run, and is very therapeutic!
Enjoy the rest of your week, and hope to see you along soon,
Thanks and regards,
Glasgow parkrun Event Director
