Another Saturday. Another parkrun. Another morning of good vibes, buzzing energy, smiling faces, a happy congregation at the home-away-from-home that Fletcher's Cove has become to we faithful. Crisp morning air this mid-November, gorgeous blue sky and parkrun today magnificently orchestrated by first time Run Director, Maddie. We doff our caps and give special salutes to our younger, U18 volunteers.
Milestone day today for three of our own. Two juniors earned their sparkling 10s - white parkrun t-shirts soon will be yours. Well done to Zak O. and to Jasmin A. Well earned!!, now on you trundle to your 50th...
And celebrating the coveted 50 today, grand stand and cheers all round for Jason...

23 of our last 35 first time volunteers (going back to June this year) volunteered with less than 10 parkruns to their credit. Volunteering is fun, easy and a great way to give back what you get out of parkrun.
