Defibrillator training: Tuesday December 4th

Having acquired a new defibrillator for the clubhouse, there will be a training session starting at 7.30pm on Tuesday 4th December in the clubhouse. Training will be provided by 2 trainers led by Eddy of Heartstart Training. Members are welcome to attend.

The session will last approx 2.5 hours and will cover:

·         Choking

·         Recovery Position

·         Basic Life Support

·         Overview of use of Defibrillator

·         Heart Attack

·         Bleeding

So this is a very comprehensive training session which should ensure we are best prepared for any eventualities.

If you could let Terry (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) know that you intend to be there, it would help us to estimate numbers.

London Youth Games

Sunny skies and a fairly firm Parliament Hill course greeted our 20 runners who were representing their boroughs - in our case, Waltham Forest or Redbridge. It was a great day for the club as we had three podium placings and a winning team.

U11 Girls

Isabelle Kyson, tasting top opposition for the first time, ran a fine race over 1500 metres to place 12th, just  29 seconds behind Lilly Rose from Lambeth. This will give Isabelle confidence as she travels to Liverpool next Saturday for her next race. 170 runners started in this race.

2018-19 Met League race 2: Young Athletes

Around 50 young athletes turned up at Stanborough Park, Welwyn, to be greeted by sunny skies and a mild autumn day. They were the lucky ones as rain came along for our Senior Women and even worse conditions for the Men as a cloudburst drenched all the runners in the final race.

It was another excellent day for our youngsters as we maintain a healthy overall lead in the Howard Williams Junior Trophy whilst retaining leads in five of the age group categories.

Works at Ashton Playing Fields

As you may have seen, work is underway at Ashton. The purpose is to prepare the facility to support Woodford Town Football Club as of the 2019/20 Season. The specific works are: 

·        Levelling the infield area to prepare it to become usable for football. This has begun. We are assured it will not affect our use of the track except at some times during the day when equipment needs to use the track. The plan is to have the infield available again from March 2019.

·        New lighting. Upgrades to the existing lighting pillars, probably with the erection of one or two new pillars.

·        New PA system to be deployed around the field, probably on the new lighting pillars.
