Event #270

Shrewsbury parkrun
Event number 270
27th July 2019

Run Director Len East orchestrated a happy but damp band of volunteers this Saturday as the recent heatwave gave way to more traditional summer weather – Well done to all our hi-viz heroes. Please email in to shrewsbury@parkrun.com if you would like to volunteer.

Amongst the several tourists this week, we welcomed Leo Mansell from Sevenoaks and friends from Glasgow, Market Drayton and Manchester. Jennifer expertly signed for them, her first time using British Sign Language in front of such a large group. Jennifer worked closely with Len and Amanda Carthwright to ensure they worked to an agreed script, despite Len’s attempts at ad-libbing! parkruns' inclusivity and those inculcating it are alive and well in Shrewsbury.
