Reminder to vote for your club member of the year

Please remember to vote for your club member of the year and thanks to those having done so already. There are no set criteria for this award so it is up to you who you nominate. Maybe there is someone in the club who has always been there for you, helped you achieve your goals, and in your view contributed to the club’s success or just been great company to run and train with. A few words on why you are nominating the person would be good but is not compulsory. So that the award can be presented at the Club Dinner please send your nominations to John via the CONTACT US facility no later than Thursday 9th May.
