Thanks to the volunteers

We are very grateful to the volunteers who made this event happen: Kevin AYLWARD, Lysanne BROOMFIELD, Math CHARLTON, Allison EGGELTON, David EGGELTON, Alan GINGELL, Ian GREGORY, Louise GRIFFIN, Kieran HUGHES, Lynne JOLLEY, Rebecca KNOWLES, Jen LITTLE, Edward MORRIS, Elizabeth OSBORNE, Paul OSBORNE, Brett RUMFITT, Gordon SCRUTON, Jason SMITH, Dan WARREN-HOLLAND, Michele WEBB, Janice WELLSTEAD, Cathy WILLATT

Why not get involved and volunteer? This week at Great Salterns, as at Wednesday evening we are short on a timekeeper, someone on finish tokens, scanning and marshaling.

Don't forget that this and other reviews will be permanently on our website where you can buy kit and memberships.
