Run report 22/2/20

Coed Cefn-pwll-du parkrun
Event number 5
22nd February 2020

6 days before this week's run, there was severe flooding in Machen. Eight of the people who volunteered this week have houses that flooded, and are still in the long slow process of cleaning, drying out and rebuilding what was lost. We are so grateful to Gaynor our Run Director this week who kept the event going despite being flooded herself, and despite the forecast of another storm, which she and Richard watched carefully and managed beautifully. All of us who were flooded felt that volunteering helped us by getting us out, seeing everyone's cheerful faces, and getting some fresh air. Our new parkrun community in Machen could not have been more helpful in offering practical support, friendly messages and volunteering. I just wanted to say a huge thank you, whether you ran, volunteered, supported, or have been in touch in other ways. We love our community.
