04/11/2017 Annual General Meeting

The clubs next AGM, as previously advised, will be held on Tuesday 21st November at the Ploughman Public House, starting at 9pm

The committee have received one proposal for discussion which is as follows:

It is proposed that Werrington Joggers amend the wording and intention of its constitution to "welcome runners to the club who have an interest and commitment to running for enjoyment, fitness and social community; and are able to comfortably run 3 miles distance."

This would be a fundamental change in our constitution, currently we welcome anyone, regardless of their current ability and set no minimum standard, either in terms of distance or time a person can run comfortably for.

The Committee believes that such a change should be made by the members, not the committee, and therefore the committee has no colective view and committee members will express their own personal view at the AGM, should they wish to.

I therefore hope you will now make an extra effort to attend the AGM on 21st November. This is your club and its for you to decide the parameters in which the club is managed going forward.

If any one has any questions before the AGM please speak to me, I should remind members that your 2017/18 membership must be paid for you to attend the AGM and only full members (not social members) are entitled to speak or vote on any motion


Tim Cook, Chairman.

This is the Werrington Joggers newsletter that is issued for joggers by the joggers.  The newsletter is produced approximately 2 -3 times per year and all joggers can contribute.  The purpose of the newsletter is to enable joggers to tell their stories/experiences/ambitions with other joggers. In the past these articles have included joggers completing their first marathon, 50th park run, thanking marshalls for their involvement at races, sharing details about new races or training routes, showing their appreciation for being presented a club award etc, the list is endless.

Anyone can write a article and send it wjnewsletter1984@gmail.com, the only request is the article must be be in  a word document and we always like a photo (JPEG).

Club Sunday Run

Various - see Diary for details

Werrington Sports Centre is here

New runners are very welcome and we have a team of volunteers to help you in your first few weeks with the club whether you are a complete running novice or an experienced veteran. Our volunteer rota can be found here.

Sunday Runs

We regularly meet on a Sunday for a cross country run. These are social events and can vary between 6 and 12 miles, often with alternative shorter routes. Very often muddy - trail shoes are recommended if you have any - and run from local village halls where possible.

Sunday Run - Nassington

Many Sunday Runs have more than one distance alternative and can vary in terrain. Please see the Diary for more details of times, locations and formats. Sunday Runs are an excellent way to get to know your fellow runners and our tradition of "looping back" to keep groups together ensures that no-one is left running on their own or will get lost. Please support the run hosts who plan and arrange the runs and spend a Sunday morning in the fresh air on some of our local countryside routes.

Westwood Musical Society

Every year our own Rod McDonald joins Westwood Musical Society in their annual presentation at the Key Theatre. This year is Irving Berlin's White Christmas. Traditionally attended by dozens of Werrington Joggers on the Friday evening showing (this year 27th October), please contact Rod for ticket details.

Parkrun

Many members take part in the regular Peterborough parkrun and a list of the latest results for the consolidated Werrington Joggers members can be found by clicking here. This is a measured 5km time trial open to the general public every Saturday morning at Ferry Meadows country park at 9am, and elsewhere as an unmeasured 5km run. these are not races and no entry fee is required but you must pre-register on the  web site.

Discounts

Club members, friends and family are entitled to discounts on purchases from
