Event #202, 30 March 2019

It was great to see so many visitors and first timers at Porty this week.

A special mention to Dorothy Grooby who took part in her 100th Portobello parkrun; achieving a PB at the same time! And congratulations to Angela Goodsir who reached her 100 milestone.

It was nice to meet the staff from Portobello Surgery taking part in their first parkrun and also to get a chance to speak to Vince Ashton from Bolton who was taking part in his 69th different parkrun and who volunteers as an ambassador for invisible conditions.
