I wonder if some of you can
help me? For the last few years, I have been helping to organise
the Westminster Primary and Secondary Schools cross country
competition in Regents Park. As far as I know, no school in
Westminster has its own playing fields and consequently this is one of the
very few opportunities that children in the Borough have to take part in an
inter-school running competition.
As in past years, I'm looking to
recruit some Serpentine members to help with the course marshalling and in
the finish area. I would also like to find a timekeeper (only the
first 20 runners are timed). Would you like to get
The competition will take place on Wednesday, 9
primary schools races are in the morning and these start at 9.45am.
There will then be a short break before the secondary schools races take
place in the afternoon. These start at 1.00pm and we should be
finished by 3.30pm.
I'm very conscious that the races are in the
middle of the working day. However, as well as appealing to Serpies
who currently may not be working for one reason or another, I know there
are a number of businesses that have "community support" schemes and it may
be that they will be able to release members of staff for part of the day
for a most worthwhile event.
If you can help, please can you let me
know by Monday, 7 October. Please can you indicate whether you can
cover only the morning races or just the afternoon events or whether you're
available for the whole time.
