Hello Team Elswick:
The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Ladies Captain Lalage Brown, Gina Cappocci Ladies Vice Captain and Men’s Cross Country Captain David Jardin for all their hard work, endeavour and selfless volunteering in their respective roles and responsibilities on the club’s committee.
With the Annual General Meeting on the horizon and as Lalage, Gina & David stand down from their positions, it means that the committee would now like to take this opportunity to ask our club members if ‘you’ would consider stepping into one of these positions which have been vacated. A further explanation is citied below.
Cross Country – North East Harrier League:
1a. A reminder that the club tent and trolley are both available for club members, parents & guardians to take to and return from a venue. A table is available on the club’s noticeboard to which you can assign your name to a venue for collection and return of the tent. The new tent is ‘double telescopic and will fit into almost all cars. Don’t forget the bags containing the sides & roof!
1b. Don’t forget to keep your number for the entire NEHL season. If you lose or forget your number the replacement cost (£3) is down to the individual and not the club.
