OUT OF BOUNDS

Unfortunately, due to faults with the EPSV hammer cage, the throws D area has been cordoned off and that area is now out of bounds until the dangerous situation is addressed and resolved.

The only area in use for javelin training and competition until further notice is the high jump D.

TEAM MANAGERS NEEDED

The club is looking for parents to team manage at our four fixtures in the Cheshire Track and Field League. If you can help, please contact Dennis ASAP at: [email protected].

EPSV TRACK & FIELD TRAINING SESSIONS

Due to the Council Elections, the Club will be using the EPSV track from 5.30-7pm on Thursday 4th May.

Brio are asking that all visitors use the parking bays and do not park by the fence next to the 3g pitch.

Brio are open during normal hours on Saturday 6th May (Coronation Day), so training will be taking place as normal between 10am and 12 noon.

Calling all athletes! Please renew your membership. If you have not rejoined you will not be selected to compete in upcoming competitions, as only current members details are shared with team managers.

CHESHIRE TRACK & FIELD LEAGUE ROUND ONE @ EPSV ON SUNDAY APRIL 23RD

The Club is hosting the opening round of the Cheshire Track & Field League at Ellesmere Port Sports Village this Sunday (23rd April) and needs your support. There are events for all age groups, from under 11s through to veterans and the day starts at 11.45am with a 3,000m race. Dennis would be grateful if anyone is available to help set-up equipment from 9am, officiate/volunteer from 11.45am, and tidy away from 4.30pm.

CAN YOU SPARE JUST ONE MORNING THIS YEAR TO HELP YOUR CLUB?

Can you spare a morning to help the club by volunteering as a marshal at the Chester Half Marathon this year on Sunday 21st May?

We need as many volunteers as possible for this event as it results in important support from the race organisers which is used towards equipment and facilities costs etc, helping us to keep subscriptions down.

Volunteers will be allocated to one of three zones which West Cheshire AC has responsibility for. Detailed arrangements will be confirmed closer to the time but individuals will be asked to help between approximately 08:15 and 12:30.

If you are able to bring friends or family to help too the extra hands would be hugely appreciated. Children are welcome but please let me know if you will have any under 16s with you so that we can allocate to suitable positions.

All volunteer marshals receive a full race goody bag, including technical t-shirt and light refreshments. Please email Ian at: [email protected] and include ‘Chester Half 2023’ in the subject line if you could help.

CLUB TREASURER VACANCY

Our Club Treasurer, Darren Shillington, is stepping down from his post at the Club’s next AGM, so the club requires someone to replace him. If you are interested and would like more details, please email Darren at: [email protected]
