West Beach parkrun – Event number 192 – 1st February 2020

The dodgy weather overnight did not put off 248 keen parkrunners this morning who joined us to celebrate and eat cake!

We had visitors and milestones - including young George who achieved his 10th parkrun this morning.

It was a special day at West Beach parkrun today as Co-Event Director and Co-Founder Shelley Harington stepped down and handed her Event Director responsibilities on to Aleta Gunn.  Welcome to the role Aleta.  Aleta joins Tennille Mares as Co-Event Directors at West Beach parkrun from now on.  Also, Lorraine Tyler, fellow Co-Founder and previous Event Director stepped down form the team to continue her parkrun Event Ambassador role and Lung Cancer Advocacy work.  Although Shelley and Lorraine established the event together, it was Shelley's idea!  You know who to thank/blame!

The event was made possible by 13 volunteers:

Pauline HALL • Briony BULLARD • Karen LANGDON • Lorraine TYLER • Marg BEAGLEY • Fatty SAMUELS • Sindy WOO • Michael GUNN • Mary KRIS • Caycee FELL • Robert NUNAN • Heather DOWLING • Charlene DU TOIT
