But the highlight of this week was of course the celebration of Carole ANSELL's upcoming marriage. This weekend was Carole's hen weekend and it was kicked off in style with a wedding themed parkrun. Carole's friend's from the Forest Monsters all looked the part and Carole was ushered over the finish line through her very own guard of honour.
