And we thanked Lisa BAILEY for volunteering on 50 separate occasions and said a sad farewell to Ann WEBBER who heads back home to Australia very soon (via Europe). We will miss you Ann and hope you come back and visit us in the future.

The Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers are in charge of proceedings this weekend and they have a theme - panto! You may remember that we had to cancel back in December due to heavy snowfall so we had to postpone the Hashers volunteer takeover until this weekend. But I know that we will all get in to the spirit of things regardless. Oh yes we will....!

See you on Saturday!
