We received great feedback for all those who volunteered today, especially form tourists, including the following comments:-

“Nice to also see the younger generation encouraging the runners on the corner of the dam part (near the gate) it does help when you are being told well done and is appreciated, well done to all volunteers! We were Tourists for the second time today from our local Conkers parkrun."

Well done all!
