Well until about 8:30pm last night I had been privileged to be the Petts Wood Runners Treasurer and also be Race Director for the annual PW10k race. But I resigned at the AGM and two club members have been appointed to take my place on the committee. I wish them every success and with it the running clubs continued growth in popularity.
Looking back to the moment when I took on those two positions it was not easy to follow on from the founders and there was some general concern as to the continued existence of the club. But any social organisation is what its members want it to be and the members then and those that have joined subsequently wanted a friendly running club that would support their individual goals, what ever they were. So survive and prosper PWR has. It will face and overcome the challenges that lay ahead with those new committee members bringing their enthusiasm and experience.
It just remains to say 'thank you' to the committee who kindly gave me a farewell gift of a PWR hoodie that I am sure I will use to keep me warm at races and events.
