The Club is looking for a volunteer to design a sign at The Garrison Ground on Bar End Road promoting WADAC and to create some signs / banners at the Athletics Stadium saying “Home of Winchester & District Athletics Club” or similar.
The role would involve liaising with the University and possibly the City Council if planning is required.
If interested, please contact Pete Spelman via firstname.lastname@example.org
Allegra Whittome---second from left
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that one of our athletes, Allegra Whittome, passed away last weekend.
Allegra (year 11 / U17) was a top all-round athlete that competed regularly for Winchester & District Athletics Club, Hampshire County and St Swithun’s School.
Full of life and enthusiasm, Allegra loved competing in sport. She was a massive team player in David Vosser’s and Pete Spelman’s training squad and was loved by all her team mates. Only on Friday, Allegra’s mum got in touch to say how sorry Allegra was not to be able to compete in the Hampshire League in Bournemouth on Saturday as she wasn’t feeling too good!
We shall all miss her big time.
May Allegra rest in peace. Our thoughts are prayers are with her family at this very sad time.
I am delighted to announce that Andy Gannaway has agreed to take on the role of Officials’ Co-ordinator for the Senior Track & Field matches this summer.
Andy will work with Viktoria Lyne who will co-ordinate officials for the Junior matches.
Thank you both.
