Alongside the formal competitions that our Juniors have attended, the club has also been having fun at its annual McDonald’s Santa run in December 2018 and handicap race at Bankhouse in February this year. As always, the handicap race was very well attended and was followed by the Juniors’ presentation afternoon and disco. Awards were made to the Juniors for their efforts and dedication over the year and were presented to them by Alex Bell, P&B and British Commonwealth Games athlete.
