Marathon season kicked off in earnest yesterday! Well done to those who ran & hope you’re coping ok with the stairs today.

Reminder to spread the word about space still being available on our coach to London. Feel free to mention on your “socials”. Katy has been doing an impressive job on various chat groups but definitely others we haven’t touched.
