Following the fire in the grandstand at the end
of last year, the good news is that training will resume from Thursday, 5th January at Wimbledon Park
Stadium with temporary lighting on the track and in the clubhouse. Please check with your coach re timings
as all sessions will need to be finished by 8.30pm until the evenings become lighter. In order to put up
the lights and dismantle them efficiently we have been appealing for volunteers to help on a rota basis.
If you can assist please contact Fred Green at firstname.lastname@example.org or make yourself known in the clubhouse. 4-01-17
