Chingford League, Hog Hill - Easter Monday

Once again the Chingford League organisers were quick off the mark to arrange a fixture just shortly after the easing of a lockdown. It was the same venue as the second round, Hog Hill, but run in the opposite direction. It was therefore unfortunate that the start position was adjusted and so meant ‘The Hill’ still had to be tackled three times! The Woodford contingent was much stronger than last time, which also included two women. Alicia McArdell was our highest placed finisher in 7th (both divisions) with a time of 20:10 over the tough 5k course.

Fine start on the track for Phil Norman

Competing on the track at Batersea Park on a warm Wednesday evening, Phil Norman began his quest to gain selection for the steeplechase at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics by showing fine form over 5000m and setting a “domestic” Woodford Green Club record in the process.


Membership fees are normally due on the 1st January of each year but,as notified last December, the club committee extended the period for a further three months to 1st April 2021. This was in recognition that 2020 has been an exceptional year both on a personal basis and for athletics in general. There has been scant competition at club level and the winter season has been written off. Nevertheless, many of you continued to pay your annual subscriptions and the club is grateful that so many have done so to allow the club to function as normally as possible.

Membership fees are now due on the 1st April 2021. From there onwards, our subscription year will run from the 1st April each year to the following 31st March. This will now be in line with the registration year with England Athletics, which run in the same period. 2021 Membership Fees, including registration fees to England Athletics, are as follows:

2 managers wanted: Bar & Catering

The club is in urgent need for two volunteers to take on two very important roles within the club – Clubhouse Bar Manager and Catering Manager (for home fixtures).  The existing club committee members are often doing multiple jobs within the club, so it is hoped that some “new blood” be injected into these roles.  With things hopefully getting back to normal soon, both roles are vital for the social side of the club and as income generation.  The job specs of each role are summarised below, but there is scope to delegate and/or to manage the role in your own way.  Please contact Club Secretary, David Hollingworth (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you are interested or to find out more.  Our thanks go out to Kevin Diedrick (Bar) and Christine Foy (Catering) for their many years of service in the roles.  They will be willing to advise their replacements.
