Today we had a silent silence, Ben signed for us and we made a movie! (oh and we also did a parkrun )
What a fantastic group this morning, the sun was shining and everyone was in great voice. Everyone Hey, Hey, Hey listened up as we met Ben Jones, Ben came to sign the welcome brief for us to help our deaf and hard of hearing runners. I was tempted to play the "what do rude words look like in sign?" game but apparently it was inappropriate so we didn't! (Martin)
We all made a movie as part of the thank you parkrun selfie campaign. (click on the photo below to watch the video)
We had lots of milestones this week, a number of 50s including the very shy postman Dave Keeling. We also had a couple of 100s too! Well done everyone on fantastic achievements.
We had visitors from Sheffield, Huddersfield, Grantham, Oldham and South Africa! We also had 56 first timers this week which is brilliant, welcome to our parkrun family.
A group of our Vegan Runner friends came to see us today, some local regulars but many from further afield, they were all super fast so to improve your time check out a vegan diet!
All finish tokens came back safe and sound so thank you for your help. Thanks to our fantastic volunteers for being so amazing, if you would like to try on a High Vis then head to our volunteer page and get your name down, there is genuinely no better feeling than helping once in. while.
Finally here's Ben saying how much he enjoyed Clumber parkrun and what a rather splendid chap the RD was this morning (again you need to click on the photo to watch the video) see you next week!
