EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

Parents wanting to purchase club vests (£17) and/or hoodies (£12) as Christmas presents are reminded that parents Vikki Brett and Joanne Lark will sell club kit at the EPSV Track Office AFTER Tuesday night training sessions.

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION…

Club members are reminded that England Athletics have arranged for a film crew to attend our track training session at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Tuesday, 20th November. It’s everyone’s opportunity to explain why our club has won the North West Athletics Club of the Year Award for a third successive year and how we value our volunteer coaches, officials and helpers.
