A DATE FOR YOUR DIARIES
The club is 20 years old this year, and to celebrate we are inviting members of every age, as well as parents and friends, to attend a birthday picnic and fun day at the Ellesmere Port Sports Village Athletics Track on Saturday June 23rd, between 4pm and 7pm.
Tom provide an idea of attendance for catering purposes, can you please email Dennis to let him know if you will be coming along. His email address is dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com
YOUR CLUB NEEDS MORE OFFICIALS
Parents and helpers at the club wanting to provide back-up to our graded officials are being asked to sign up to attend an officials course scheduled to be held at Ellesmere Port Sports Village later this year.
Anyone who has considered being a field judge, track judge, timekeeper, starter, or marksman can take that first step by emailing Dennis at: dennis.wall1@ntlworld.com
STAYING HEALTHY
Club coaches Tim Durrant and Ian Ackroyd want to raise awareness to all young female club members about assessing their iron levels by having blood tests.
Articles recently written by athlete Bobby Clay about her training and health issues have flagged up warnings and the need for our female athletes aged between 13 and 17 years old to monitor their health. Ian and Tim will provide more details if asked.
