Due to a recent safety notice issued by UKA related to Hammer/Discus cage specifications there will be some disruption during this event.The latest registration (as advertised) is 6pm but we will need to start the competition for any athletes expecting to throw over 40m at 6.30pm and other throwers will start at approximately 7pm. Depending on the number of entries it is possible that there will have to be maximum of 3 throws per competitor so please bear this in mind if you wish to compete in the hammer and except our apologies for the late advice but we are required to follow these new UKA guidelines.
Update: Ron's funeral will be held at the South Chapel, City of London Crematorium, at 11am on Tuesday, 29th May. The family invite everyone for a drink and a snack at the WGEL clubhouse at Ashton Playing Fields afterwards.
