As usual the events were enjoyed by all participants and the presentations went well despite problems with the computer assisted results service which failed totally. All the youngsters got a medal at the very least, and we tried to ensure that most of the seniors got an award of some description. The raffle was a success with plenty of prizes donated and enabling a profit overall of £136.20. This amount will be forwarded to the Stroke Ward at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital in accordance with the wishes of our Club Vice President, Glyn Davies.

ECO NEWS

In Northern Ireland the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme which keeps empty sheds warm and may cost £billions, may be replicated over here under an initiative by the government and UK Athletics from 1st April. It involves runners attaching plastic bags to their shorts and catching methane emissions; the bags are then sent to gas recycling centres. The bags only cost 5p from most stores but unfortunately have holes in them due to health & safety, and so defeats the whole purpose. Donald Trump says he is ‘behind’ the scheme, the PM says she ‘May’ give it a go; JC says it will be a miracle if it works, and WRU could give it a ‘try’. As they say in panto , “it’s behind you”, and “ozone they won’t”!
