Content editor(s) needed

We are in need of, ideally, a couple of additional content editors for the website.

The role would involve receiving requests from team managers, particularly, plus other club officials, to add whatever they need to the website. Race reports, announcements, etc.

The site is currently based on the "Joomla" content management tool. It is relatively easy to use once you have been shown how.

Ideally, too, a content editor is able to make minor corrections to the content that is submitted - e.g. adding commas, making minor corrections, etc. So a reasonable standard of English is required.

Ideally, too, a content editor can respond fairly rapidly to a request - e.g. within 24 hours.

Adding photos to articles is another potential task - if you can use a standard tool to crop photos to the required size, it is easy to add them to articles.

If you have regular access to a PC and you are interested in helping the club out in this way, please email me: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Thank you.

Team reunite for Ayo

Just prior to Christmas, 300-400 people attended the funeral of Ayo Falola. The funeral was followed by a celebration of his life at Lee Valley.

Ayo formed part of the 4x100m team which still holds the club record in that event, and the other members of that record holding team were present to pay tribute to their former team-mate.

The record, of 40.15 seconds, was set when winning the Cup-Final at Bedford on 30.8.97, and the order was Ayo, Josephus Thomas, Jocelyn Thomas, Tim O´Dell. The photo shows, from left to right, Josephus, Tim and Jocelyn, with one of Ayo's sons, Ben.
