Happy birthday parkrun! What a great morning Saturday was. A sea of milestone and apricot tees amongst our 236 finishers, the three lap course (hooray!) and cake at the finish line. Add in the wonderful job our youngest ever Run Director did (well done Will) and it was the perfect way to celebrate our community.
We welcomed 12 brand new parkrunners (special mention to my friends Claire and Katie!) and tourists from Edinburgh, Lancaster, Workington and Cheltenham. It was lovely to have you all along and we hope you come back again soon.
As always, thank you to Saturday's hi-viz heroes:
Caroline Sarah EVANS • Lindsay GRAHAM • Allan CAMPBELL • Bethany DUFFY • Sally LITTLE • Neil ERRINGTON • Ivor NORMAN • Tracy BECKETT • Andrew CARTER • Alicia CARTER • William CARTER • Susanne MCDOUGALL • Nicola JACKSON • Lucy JACKSON • Brian HAZLEWOOD • Annika STUMPF • Mary MESSENGER • Keith MILLICAN • Beverley ARMSTRONG • Victoria IRVING • Christine SOUTHAM
Please do get in touch if you can help out one Saturday. Remember - we can't operate without you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org - thank you!

Before I finish, Kev and I were disappointed to realise we'd missed the group photo so we took steps to amend it. I think you'll agree that you can barely see any difference.......
