At least it is looking like much milder conditions for next week’s landmark 40th Fly 5k.


Despite the cold temperatures there were still an encouraging 307 times recorded including 23 first timers – welcome to you all and I hope you enjoyed taking part enough that we will see you all again next week with even more newcomers I am sure, as well as lots of regulars also.
