Sadly, due to a change in the terms of use with Flickr - we can no longer add photographs to our run report in the old way. And our Flickr account will soon be closing. If you wish to download any photographs from this account please do it now as they will be deleted soon.

We should hopefully have a new way of sharing photographs with you on its way soon and I will of course let you know the details when I have them.

See you next time!

Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our collection of groceries for Kidderminster Foodbank. Its hard to think that foodbanks are needed in this day and age but sadly more people are turning to them than ever. We collected two car boots worth of items to these will go a long way to making some people's Christmas and New Year a little more comfortable. Again, THANK YOU everyone.

Last Saturday I volunteered for the role of Run Director. Not a role I would normally volunteer for but one that I am really happy to have done. I would like to thank the core team for their help & assistance over the last couple of weeks as they trained me for the role & a big THANK YOU to Andie FORD for her advice & help.

After being terrified by doing the run brief with lots of announcements (only forgot one) the parkrun itself passed without incident. Timekeepers were spot on & I don't think there were any missed scans so thank you to you guys.

*The announcement I missed was for the parkrun on the 9th December which is a club take over by Wyre forest hash house harriers & their theme is panto. So expect a colourful & fun parkrun. *EDIT: check the weather reports - snow is forecast - sadly, we may have to cancel this :-(

Once again a thank you from me to all the volunteers & I will be RD'ing again.

Thanks - Mark.

Many of those first timers were from local Community Housing Group (TCHG) and have only recently completed a Couch to 5k Course under the fabulous leadership of parkrun regulars Lisa BAILEY and Nigel FAIN. Lisa and Nigel have obviously coached them well as they all finished the run looking very fresh with huge smiles! As well they should!
