Call for past and present Thetford Athletics Club members to join 40th anniversary event
06:30 28 May 2014
Thetford Athletics Club members of past and present are being invited to help the club celebrate 40 years of involvement with the town’s junior and senior athletes.
The club was established in 1974 and will be celebrating its 40th anniversary with a fun day at Thetford Grammar School on Saturday, June 28.
Organisers are hoping to see past and previous members come along to celebrate and reminisce between 11.30am and 5pm on the school’s playing field.
Thetford AC spokesman Sharon Try said: “Thetford Athletics Club has supported its share of locally, regionally and nationally successful athletes along with many thousands more members of all ages who either seek to compete to test themselves against their own personal bests or who simply want to get involved in athletics to maintain their own level of fitness.”
Entry to the fun day will cost £2 for adults and £1 for children, which includes a free ticket to a prize draw. The event will offer all manner of traditional sports day fun and games along with a barbecue and light refreshments.
Mrs Try continued: “Thetford AC would like to use the fun day as an opportunity to get as many past and present Thetford AC members together to celebrate this important milestone.
“Therefore, if you keep in touch with any past athletes from Thetford who have moved away from the area, please help the club to get them back in touch with them and see whether they would be willing to share their experiences and catch up with some old friends and running partners on June 28.”
