The Club has agreed to help out at three Schools Sportshall Athletics Competitions in the next few weeks. If you can help at any of the following competitions please email Dennis ASAP at: [email protected]

Rob Arden from Tattenhall Runners has approached Andy Carter regarding a Traffic Management Officer (TMO) course that he is organising on Saturday 11th March. There are some spare places at a cost of £74 per head which will be funded by West Cheshire AC. This is a TESS managed course to gain the TMO qualification.

The Club has a few TMOs who are in need of an online refresher course so this isn’t for them but there’s an opportunity here to get some more people trained up if there’s any volunteers. If you are interested, please email Andy Carter ASAP at: [email protected]


Club members and parents are being invited to look at samples of club kit which can be found in the EPSV Trackside Room on Tuesday and Thursday next week before and during training.

Many happy returns to the following club members who celebrate their birthdays this week:

Abigail Cartwright, Luke Parker, Oliver Brassington, Megan Hughes, Megan White, Harry McKenna, Juliet Robinson, Alex Rutherford, Mia Jones, Brian Beattie, Chris Rhodes, Steve Duffy, Keely Smith, Kelly Massey.

And next week: Danielle Erskine, Joe Foy, Phil Gent, Anna Woolgar, David Shearer, Will Rawson, Lucy Caldwell, Lydia Chambers.
