Whitley Bay parkrun needs you!
It is entirely organised by volunteers - email firstname.lastname@example.org to help.
Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Di Meo's Cafe at 9 Marine Avenue, close to the War Memorial and public toilets on Watts Slope, in front of the Spanish City Dome. Come and join us on the first floor of this award winning ice cream cafe for either a hot drink and bacon sandwiches at a special rate for parkrunners presenting their barcode - please come and join us!
