With the grim reckoning of more than 100,000 deaths with Covid 19 across the country, we at Kent AC can take a tiny drop of cheer from the fact that Lewisham’s Covid cases have plummeted by half over the past week. Judging from the numbers of people I see wearing masks while out and about, it feels as if this corner of the city, at least, is obeying lockdown advice and focusing on a possible March respite.
Meanwhile, keep on with the off-track training regimes, keep your distance from other park users and enjoy running in our splashy, waterlogged parks.
I am also pleased to report that the club’s most stalwart supporter, Ron Hale, who ran for the club from 1947 to the present day, is on the mend following his brush from Covid. He is, perhaps, a fine example of how a life of running can keep you fighting fit. I spoke to him on the telephone a couple of days ago and he’s feeling fine, but very bored with his restricted walking regime.
Committee Posts Available
Today is the last day you can register your interest in the two posts we have up for grabs. Any volunteers will be considered tomorrow evening (Monday 1 February) at the online committee meeting. Please take a look at the club rules if you’re thinking about throwing your hat into the ring.
Youth Athlete Representative/Manager
The Committee is currently looking to update/develop the job description for this post so the requirements may develop over time; however, generally this role covers overseeing all aspects of youth athletics (training, coordinating with parents, organising travel to races etc). Ken Pike has offered to take on this role; the Committee welcomes his offer.
Aside from the role itself (which is a large undertaking and will require a high level of commitment), the Committee would welcome offers from members who would like to assist in the running of youth athletics at the Club going forward.
Women – Road
This role is open due to an administrative error – Sarah Hanley was accidentally nominated and appointed at the AGM. Katie Rowland has offered to take this role back on/continue in this role; the Committee welcomes her offer.
