Hastings Half:
Rambler Coach in place for HR use, thanks to members for leaflet deliveries and hopefully for the barriers the day before the event. As locals, please think of parking limitations on the day.

Hastings 5m:
Tony D on entries, funds low, extra cost through need for wc provision, Runners World entry system will delay payment to club, thus need club entries asap to boost funds, debate suggests HR’s will not enter until the month before on the whole, they will likely enter in due course. Entry Forms out to events please, sponsorship form noted and will be in with every race number issued. Terry K suggest consideration to an Early Bird Entry for future years.

Arianne C advised that the 100th Hastings Park Run on 11th March, fancy dress, cakes, goody bags, a beano in short.

Social Media/News, etc:

All quiet, that may at least mean all ok. AG working on security aspects of website. AG also advised that if anyone else at anytime wished to also be involved on the website, please step forward, any thoughts welcome.

Social Secretary:
Quiz, give some thought to a new quiz. The Tony’s standing down.

Nick Brown had advised Tim that the Park Run group instruction had been given instruction on the defibrillator and it may be a good idea to introduce HR coaches to same and other pertinent issue. Very easy, 3no now available to the Hastings and St Leonards seafront. To be reviewed with TJ/NB.
General first aid seems to have gone a little astray and Tim will still push this.
