The Club AGM - a date for your diaries
The AGM will be held on Monday 26th April. Please add this date to your diaries. More details are on the Noticeboard.
We still have no candidates for the post of Club Chair which will become vacant at the AGM. There is an updated description of the Chair role here.
We will also be awarding senior trophies to the 2020 Club Champions and to other competition winners.
England Athletics are running a consultation about the future formal “membership” of UK Athletics, which is equivalent to the shareholders in a company limited by shares. Full information about the various options proposed are available on the EA website. If you want to input to this consultation, which could have a significant impact on the level of control that we (as athletes) have over the future of our sport in the UK, then please contact Ginevra or Malcolm with your views on the various options, by no later than Friday 26th March. We will then respond to the consultation on behalf of the club.

The Surrey Slog
MABAC have advised that they plan to hold the Surrey Slog on Sunday 25th July. This is described as "a challenging half marathon around Holmbury Hill".
We will be asking for volunteers nearer the time. More details are available on the MABAC website. There is also a link to enter the event, but at the time of writing it is still not working!
The mystery of the missing trophies has been solved and I will arrange for distribution of the outstanding awards and medals in due course.
Kate Knight has now just 31 miles to go to complete her 600 mile challenge raising money for NHS Charities Together and Mind. Well done Kate!
