Highbury Fields 21st April 2018
The parkrun of the 22nd was what seems to be the start of many warm Saturday mornings to come. As well as it being Marathon weekend for London, causing the numbers to spike, I came to the end of my DofE stint becoming the first Silver Volunteer to RD. In the beginning, while I was nervous to join this part of the running community, I felt welcomed by the core team and all the regular volunteers. In order to complete my DofE volunteering section I volunteered at parkrun every week for 6 Months and partook in every role at Highbury Fields. To prepare for my donning of the blue Hi-Fis I worked with Lizzy and Martin to acquire the skills necessary. Although I will be taking a break from parkrun for the time being to take on GCSE's, I will look forward to returning for my Gold timeslot of 12 months.
In this week, special congratulations go to Rachel Day and Max Hermann as well as first-timers to Highbury fields, Alex and Stephen on all completing their 50th runs. 350 runners came out today for the beautiful weather, with plenty of new faces and the funnel was restored to its original. Many thanks to the team who made it all work this weekend, well done to you all:
Buket SWAIN • Colleen KRENZER • Felix SAMUELS • James BEVAN • Jennifer GLASSFORD • Jerome MILLS • John ROBACK • Kathryn DONKERSLEY • Lewis SELWYN • Lizzy MUGGERIDGE • Luis COLLYER • Martin BLACK • Neil HOSKEN • Paul COLLYER • Ted HISLOP • Yannick HUNTER-THIELEMANN
I hope you all have a good week.
