Tuesday 30th April
Hi, the following article appeared in the last edition of the newsletter. At present I have had one person provide me information. Please don't be shy, this is a good way to make people in the club aware of your business. In this day and age of cowboys it is always good to know of a trusting person. I know there are electrians, painters, decorators, barbers, mechanics, gardeners etc in the club so this will be of interest to you.
It was suggested at the AGM in November last year that it would be useful to know if any Joggers ran their own business that other Joggers may not know about, but would want to use e.g. are you a painter and decorator, an electrician, a gardener, a hairdresser etc.
Sometimes we need to use a qualified person e.g. electrician but don't know who to use. Wouldn't it be good if you could pick up the phone and call a fellow Jogger for help?
In the next edition of the newsletter you will have the opportunity to inform other Joggers about your business. Please note this is not an advert, if you want to advertise in the newsletter please see the article elsewhere in the newsletter.
If you would like fellow Joggers to know your trade please provide me with the following information.
1) Your name
2) Name of your business
3) Brief description of your business, this should be no more than 10 words
4) Contact details e.g. phone number, email address

Friday 18th January
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly and tried everything possible to keep the race on, but at the end of the day, the safety of the runners, marshals and other helpers was paramount.
We will make the decision in the next 3-4 days on whether we can hold the race on another weekend, although at this stage it is looking unlikely due to the busy race calendar.
Frostbite on Sunday, 11am senior race start, 10.15 junior start and please don't warm up to close to the Prison walls to avoid setting off any proximity alarms.
Presentation tickets for this Friday still available, please let Tim know if you wish to collect on the night.
