25th May 2018, Number 172


Club members, parents and friends are needed to help out this Sunday at the second round of the under 17 and under 20 Youth Development Track and Field League match at Ellesmere Port Sports Village.

Eddie Gore, Dennis Wall, and the Brio staff need assistance from 8am with setting up the equipment and more assistance is needed from 4.30pm to put the equipment away.

And helpers are also needed to assist our graded track and field officials. It’s a great opportunity to see how things happen inside the ropes, so if you can help please email Dennis ASAP at: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com


Congratulations to Dave Alexander and Ellie Robinson who won the mixed team prize at the Jubilee Relay at Llangynhafal, on Wednesday night. Ellie also won a prize for the fastest female descent.
