Clubhouse renovation: help required!

From next week (16th October) Club Secretary David Hollingworth will be starting on a major clubhouse renovation project which will last through October and November. Namely, refurbishing the kitchen area, toilets and bar. We are trying to keep the cost down as much as possible, so David is looking for club members (or non-members) to contribute some time. Even the odd day here and there is very welcome. It will also help to get the job done more quickly.

Most of it would be simple labour tasks without a skills requirement. Any actual skills would be a bonus. Typical tasks will be: sorting out junk, stripping stuff out, breaking things up, painting, fetching and carrying.

If you think you may be able to help, please contact David: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 07979 905805.

Charles Stockings: 24/10/1929 - 28/07/2017

We say a fond farewell to Charles Stockings, who passed away on 28th July in hospital in Harlow. At 87 he was one of the oldest members of Woodford Green Athletic Club having been, in his younger years, a good cross country and road runner who also took part in track events.

He was a Life Member and Past President, and served as General Secretary for six years. Apart from running, he took part in many club activities, including the events organised by "The Evergreens", the association of older members of the club.

Charles organised many of The Evergreens' activities, including visits to the Brick Lane Music Hall, games in his garden in High Roding, The "Two Charlies" games evenings (with Charlie Crump), musical entertainment evenings, comedy evenings, lectures, visits, outings and walks.
