Parkrun and Me

This week Parkrun celebrates its FIFTEENTH BIRTHDAY!  That's incredible.  But true.  And what a brilliant organisation, community event (call it what you will) it is!

A curious coincidence?

We have a bucket of odd gloves along our road. If you recognise your glove you can retrieve it!   A lovely story being... Continue Reading →

AWOL
