DEFIBRILLATOR NOTICE


Club secretary Nick Hume has received the following from Mid-Lancs XC secretary Dawn Lock. Please contact Nick if you are interested:

"The date and venue for the first training session are now arranged for 2.00 p.m. - 4.00 p.m. on Wednesday 10th February at St Michaels and All Angels, Egerton Road, Preston PR2 1AJ.

There's a 1 charge per person to cover room hire and each session takes a maximum of 20 people . At the moment there are plenty of places. I realise that this will not suit working people but I hope to arrange further session in evenings and at weekends.

Please if possible pass this information onto anyone at BWFAC (not necessarily cross-country runners - coaches and those involved in track and field are welcome) who may wish to attend and, if some do, please let me have the names of those who wish to attend on the 10th and those who would like to attend a future evening or weekend session.

Thanks. I look forward to your reply.

Dawn"
