Just wanted to congratulate the organisers and all concerned with todays excellent schools cross country event. Our children really enjoyed the experience of competing against so many children in such a well organised event.
We’ll certainly be looking to add next year to the 34 children who experienced it today.
Just a note to say how brilliant the cross country championships were yesterday. Our children really enjoyed being part of such an impressive event and we’re really grateful to everyone who made it possible and gave up their time to marshal and help out. Thank you.
