After last month’s excitement of a 50th birthday cunningly woven into proceedings, we are now in the midst of unprecedented times with Great Britain facing a possible Brexit.
Should that happen, Matlock Park may have to look closer to home to replace its occasional EU markets of German frankfurters and French cheese.
As part of our own contingency planning, THQ is mulling over the need re-badge the Thread as a 3M(ile) park run.
In Europe or out, Brussel Mandarin leisure legislation or Local Authority charges for formal park runs - none of this will affect the continued running of the Thread.
So…… up at the business end, Mike Blair took first place crossing the line in 18:59 - only fitting as the Whitworth Centre Manager!
Well done to the 30 new runners today!
Don’t forget the Lea Bunny Run takes place tomorrow. This is a 10km road race, 5km park run and 2km family fun run around the villages of Lea & Holloway (close to Matlock) starting and ending at Lea Green Learning & Development Centre, Lea Main Road – have Google, ponder, relax and see how you feel in the morning – Andrea will be waiting to embrace Threaders……
Thanks as ever to our glorious marshals with £95 collected towards this months charity - our very own Whitworth Centre
