Firstly an very important announcement missed in the celebrations!

Wow what a fun packed Saturday - so it was our 3rd Birthday. Special thanks to all our core team of volunteers, The Run Directors, permanent marshal / volunteers who even have their specific marshal spots! Dee's Corner, Sue's High five bridge and Music Marshal Tim. Timers David & Vaughan.
Thanks to all as week after week we wouldn't be here without the hands on deck to put the event on for our incredible participants.

As well as our birthday to celebrate there as also 70 years of the NHS being celebrated by UK parkrun. It was great to see NHS Staff taking part and we even had Rob who volunteered for the first time who works for the NHS.
More celebrations for Melissa's 100th parkrun, Julia and Peter's 50th parkrun with Malcolm also celebrating his 70th birthday with a parkrun with us.
Wouldn't be a party with out and cake and balloons - hope you managed to get a treat as it didn't last long!
