We have a number of #greenarmy social events coming up to take us from Winter to Summer. These events are important as Helsby Community Sports Club desperately needs its sporting sections to use it (or loose it) in order to keep it going until new build comes along. The main income is subs and bar takings, so anything we can do to get folks in the bar is helpful. Planning permission is now fully signed off and currently companies are competitively tendering for the new build contract. It will take a bit longer for the legal side, then building the new club house will start and until such time the old needs to keep going. Please support these events to secure our future home of sport.
Wed 17th Feb Dave’s Talk on Swimming the Channel. Sandwiches provided, so we get the right number please let Lesley know if you are coming in advance firstname.lastname@example.org

Sun 20th Mar Helsby Sport Relief Mile
Helsby Running Club are organising the running side of this event. There will be 1, 3 & 6 mile options around the grounds and facilities of the community sports club, including the football and rugby pitches, the surfaces are mixed and the routes are interesting, varied and hopefully fun for all the family! You can run it or walk it, everyone is welcome, all ages too! We would like as many participants as possible in this worthwhile event. You can apply online at http://my.sportrelief.com/search/event/result?id=5808&location=WA6 9py&event-type=run plus there will be entries on the day. Please circulate this poster.
We will need 20 or so marshals on the day plus a finish team. So please let email@example.com know if you can help out otherwise we will be asking you ?!?!
Friday 29th April – Annual Presentation Evening – we have a few ideas for the format of this evening, including club subsidised transport! We’ll discuss this after Dave’s talk this Wed to ask what you would like?!?!
Wed 11th May – Club AGM – please come along and discuss what you want over the next 12 months of Helsby Running Club.
Fri 8th July – Summer Handicap & BBQ – it’s been suggested we have the handicap on Wed 5th and our friends and family summer BBQ, with handicap awards on the Friday evening. Again we’ll ask you to agree with the format after Daves talk this Wed.
That’s it for now folks. See you at a running social soon!
