The Club scores important points for each official who attends a track and field league fixture (Cheshire League, YDL, and Northern League), and that can only happen if the Club has graded officials, so the Club urgently needs more helpers and volunteers to become graded officials. If you are a parent or friend of a Club member who would like to learn more then please speak or contact Dennis Wall at: [email protected]


Club Membership Secretary, has circulated an email to Club members with a reminder to renew their Club memberships. Please renew yours ASAP.


Please keep up to date with your track training fee payments – you can set a reminder to avoid getting into arrears via your top-up link.

Brio are inviting West Cheshire AC to an open day on Saturday 18th June, at EPSV, to promote the activities and services on offer at the centre to the local and wider community.

The Club has been offered a stall to promote the Club and additional time in the sports hall and relevant areas to run demonstrations or offer taster sessions to prospective new members.

There is no charge for this, hopefully if it is a nice day the stalls will be outside if not we will occupy space in the street that runs the length of the building. A table and 2 chairs will be provided and we can take our own pop up banners/marketing material to promote the Club and any freebies to hand out to members of the public.

The event will take place from 11am–4pm. Please email Dennis ASAP if you can help at: [email protected]
