The unofficial 'Volunteer of the week' award must go to Lindsay TILLSLEY for offering to dispose of some dog droppings on behalf of a late runner!! That really is going above and beyond the call of duty Lindsay!

Well done to Chloe RICHARDSON who this week broke the Age Category Record for SW25-29 - this record now stands at a staggeringly quick 18:29 but we are pretty sure that the awesome Chloe will improve on that in the future!

And Congratulations also to Bev KERNOHAN who completed her milestone 50th parkrun with us!

A huge thank you to everyone who donated items to our collection for Kidderminster Foodbank. Graeme ANDERSON delivered the items this week and of course they were very grateful! Every time we ask you to help a cause we are always overwhelmed by your generosity, its incredibly humbling. So once again - thank you all.

Now we have a couple of busy weeks coming up! This Saturday (15th December) we have several important milestones and birthdays being celebrated including the legend that is Lindsay PULLEY's 80th Birthday!! And then the following Saturday (22nd December) it is our Christmas themed run. So please can I ask everyone to arrive nice and early for the briefings on these dates and bring something warm to wear beforehand if necessary. We also impart any important course safety information during the briefing so it is important to listen every week regardless.

If anyone would like to bring cakes/biscuits etc. for the Christmas run then that would also be appreciated! Thank you!

Really looking forward to some fab celebrations over the next couple of weeks with you all! Until then, best wishes (and fingers crossed for NO snow!)

25/11/2017 Wyre Forest parkrun #118 Awesome Andy volunteers for the 100th time

 

Wyre Forest parkrun
Event number 118
25th November 2017

This week 242 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 48 were first timers and 31 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 26 different clubs took part.

We welcomed tourists from Bournemouth, Yorkshire and Worcester this week. Lots of Worcester Black Pear Joggers were participating as part of their club championships - we hope the course proved a success for you all!

The event was made possible by 23 volunteers:

Nigel GARDNER • Mark WALLACE • Andrea FORD • Andrew T DAVIES • Lisa BAILEY • Mark REAVES • Adrian FORD • David STARKIE • Andrew GARLICK • Duncan STARKIE • Carole EVANS • Martin BIGGS • Lisa GARLICK • Andy MORGAN • Tom ANDERSON • Tina SMITH • Pete SMITH • John FRANCIS • Ian BELL • Pauline SMITH • Matt JACKSON • Debbie JACKSON • James PAYTON

We said a special 'thank you' to our awesome Andy GARLICK who this week volunteered for the 100th time! He is the first of our core team to reach this amazing milestone. There are no more official milestone clubs after 25 for volunteers (or free t-shirts!) but I still think this deserves a special mention. Without regular volunteers like Andy we really wouldn't have a parkrun - Andy was one of our founding members from Cleobury Mortimer Running Club and we are incredibly grateful to him for all the time he puts in.

And another important volunteer also reached an official milestone as Nigel GARDNER joined the Volunteer25 Club. thank you Nigel for all the time you give to help us out!

And Ruby THOMAS joined the Junior10 Club this week so will soon be sporting a special white 10 t-shirt! Well done Ruby!

Well done to this week's fantastic first timers!:

Ollie OLIVER, Tom BENTLEY, Sam BURR, Steve HINE, Edward WESTBURY, Nathan FITTER, Gary FITTER, Richard CANNON, Nina FINCH, Joseph HADLEY, Alex HADLEY, Katie PICKERSGILL, Mark PICKERSGILL, Eve HADLEY, Paul HADLEY, Alanie PARFITT

Some dates for your diary:
On December 9th the Wyre Forest Hash House Harriers (the drinking club with a running problem!) will be doing a full volunteer takeover! And they have a theme (of course!) which is 'Panto'. Oh no it isn't......Oh yes it is! Etc....! Sounds like brilliant fun so please join in!

Then on the following Saturday we will be collecting items to donate to Kidderminster Foodbank. Obviously this is a fabulous time of year for many of us but we mustn't forget that sadly, some families in the area are not so lucky.

foodbank

The sort of items that we'd appreciate are long life items - cans, jars, UHT milk, juice in cartons, tinned fruit, toiletries, washing powder etc. and it would also be nice to include some Christmas items where possible (sweets, chocolates, Christmas puddings etc.) A volunteer from the foodbank has offered to come and collect the items on that date (16th December) and to thank us - so lets make it a large collection! thanks all.

Saturday 23rd December will be our final parkrun before Christmas and a big celebration! So lets get those Santa suits, reindeer ankler headbands and tinsel garlands out and make it a sparkly spectacular! Cakes and mince pies are also very welcome!!

And of course as well as all that - Don't forget your Barcode!

Thank you all for continuing to support our wonderful parkrun and make it the amazing event that it is.

See you on Saturday!
