What a chilly old morning we had this week! although there mercifully was no rain, we had a whole 1 degree and biting winds to contend with. So before anything else, we must say a huge thank you to our volunteers who were stood in the cold in order to allow us to enjoy our run. Cheers guys : )
our high viz heroes this wee were : Dave MONAGHAN • Gill WOODALL • Graham NAYLOR • Helen PENN • James THOMAS • Jamie PENN • John COOKE • Matthew FISHER-GILL • Pamela TARBET • Sophie PENN • Susan ELDER • Tania CREAM • Tony BARKER • Victoria RIDDIOUGH
we do still need a few volunteers for the next few runs - please do help out when you can, we're really quite friendly : ) you can get in touch via email or facebook.
We had 121 participants this week, impressive given the cold weather :) We were joined by 14 first timers and visitors from Buckinghamshire, Chester, Swindon, Scunthorpe and Cleethorpes. We hope you enjoyed your run with us, we'd love to welcome you back again soon.
We had a few milestones to celebrate this week: Stephen Logan, Justin Fielder, Clive Prady, Ken Brown and Tracey Smith all celebrated reaching their 50th parkrun . Tony Barker celebrated his 100th parkrun by tailwalking the course, the first time he's been able to actively take part since June because of illness. Congratulations everyone and we look forward to seeing all those new tops soon.
Thank you all for th finish line treats too!

Don't forget next week is our Festive fancy dress / christmas jumper event, obviously, you don't have to join in if it's not your cup of tea, but it would be fun to fill the country park with as many Santa's, elves and tasteful jumpers as we can before the big day....there will of course be a little festive treat for everyone.....
Take care and have a great week.
