As most folk know the Thread’s parent company is the Matlock Athletics Club which has been in existence since 1976. One of the earlier members and a big influence on the club was Ian Milne, who some of our Threaders will have known. We were sorry to hear of Ian’s passing last week and offer our condolences to his family. We’d like to nominate next month’s donations to the Stroke Association.
To the business end and John Thorpe came home comfortably ahead of Ben Meakin and Andy Mellor. First lady back was Vicky Leach. Wonderful efforts as ever from our younger participants including Alex Irving, the Sargents, the Hazels, the Towles, the Andrews and the Slaters keeping mums and dads on their toes.
We’d like to give thanks to our marshals, Ranald and Roger as ever undertaking sterling work in supporting our event.
Johnathan Russell passes on his thanks as his nominated charity, Arthritis Research will benefit to the tune of £94.80 following Threaders digging deep.
