Little Athletics – Help Needed

As discussed in our meeting with parents on Tuesday.

Help is now really needed so that we can continue to run Little Athletics every Monday. A minimum of 6 adults are required on the night for the session to go ahead.

In the medium term, more coaches are needed to ensure the club can continue Little Athletics into the future.

For more information please contact Kevin on 0876371521
