(Couldn't get your names up in lights, sorry best we could do). Whilst not an official parkrun milestone well done to Harmander Singh for completing parkrun number 300!. At the other end of the scale we were delighted to welcome 6 people undertaking their first parkrun, Mathew Morris, Momoko Morikawa, Cherone Johnson, Pahris Cotterell, Aiswarya Kurup & Sarah Bikwa, thank you for choosing to join us at Barking. We hope you had fun and will be back to see us again very soon, don't forget we are here every Saturday at 9 am.

Tom Carnall, Gary Hobbs, Malgorzata Kucharska, Stephanie Helen Robinson, Tanith Cook, Sophie Moore, Kat Hill, Rachel Dowling, Simon Randle & Tony Sykes, likewise we hope you had fun, and obviously you are all welcome back at any time.

Despite the heat we had our usual fairly high number of personal bests, so congratulations to the following for finishing Barking parkrun faster than you have ever done before;  Ibrahim Bashiru, George Scratcherd, Boaz Micah, James Hall, Eamonn Connolly, Saif Khan, Rajesh Muthusamy, Valerie Cullen, Charity Anyika, David Weaver, Irma Cernychien, & Linda Weaver. Watch out for David he could be the new Michael .

We are reasonably well fixed for volunteers for next week although there are a few gaps if you can help; however the following week 13th July coincides with the spitfire scramble and many of our core team are unavailable for parkrun, so we would love to hear from anyone who can help out at this event. You can either email to barkinghelpers@parkrun.com or contact us through our facebook page. On the subject of facebook you might find it useful to like our page as this is the easiest way we have of giving you any updates, and advice for upcoming events.
