This was my first week as run director and it went smoothly.
We had tourists from various parts of the country including Oxford and Hertfordshire.
It was Esther Parker's 50th parkrun and she had a balloon to celebrate this achievement! It was also Stuart Smith's 50th but he kept that very quiet!
Many thanks to everyone for coming along today and supporting me in my Duke of Edinburgh volunteering!
