We’re hosting the second round of the Northern Track & Field League this Sunday and need volunteers to help Eddie Gore and Phil Howe set-up the equipment from 8am, move equipment during the match, and put equipment back into the containers at the end of the meeting.

We’ve also been asked to provide helpers for two Quad Kids schools fixtures on Friday 9th June (12.30-3pm) and Wednesday, 5th July (10.30am-3pm).

Please turn up and help out if you’re available.
