Run on 22nd December

As this will be last one before Christmas, it would be good to see as many people as possible in Christmas Fancy Dress and hopefully the Run Leaders will be able to take their groups on a tour of the Christmas Lights of Ledbury.

Fast and Fun

The booking sheet for this is here: Fast and Fun Booking Sheet

and the session is at the top of the sheet. I will endeavour to get a 10 week programme put together to start after the New Year in anticipation of some races taking place in the Spring.

 

Food Bank Collection

Over the past couple of years, we have done a collection for Ledbury Food Bank  on the last-but-one run in December.  I would like to have a collection again this year.  Donations can be made either to me at the end of a run or dropped off in the box just inside the door of 1A The Homend during office hours after the 2nd December. If neither of these are convenient, then please get in touch and I can make arrangments to collect items.  The delivery will be made to the Food Bank on the 16th December.  In discussion with volunteers, the things that are needed and appreciated are toiletries, washing powder and other home essentials.  Details of other things needed can be found here  http://www.ledburyfoodbank.org/

 

AGM

The AGM will be held this year on Thursday 7th January 2021.  It will be a virtual meeting via Zoom.  Everyone is welcome to join in and have their say,  Further details  on how to ‘attend’ will be given shortly.

We are looking for a person to help with the Harriers website.  If you are interested in taking on this role, please do get in touch.

 

Races

The Hereford Christmas 10K on 28th December is nearly full so if you want to run off that Christmas food with the last (and maybe the first ‘proper’!) race of the year, here is the link to the website.
