The Gwent League Cross Country season starts this Saturday 19th October with the u11 races starting at 12:00. We are hoping to field strong teams this year and so have obtained use of a mini-bus for some of the races. There are 13 seats available, with priority going to the runners, at a cost of £3.50 each. Pick up times are as follows:
 
Haverfordwest bus station        8:45am

The bus will return to Haverfordwest by 6:30pm.
 
Please contact Laurence to book a place on the bus or if you have difficulty in getting to the bus pick up points.
 
Joanna Bradley will be Team Manager once again. Please contact Joanna at bradders11@googlemail.com with name, dob/age group  ASAP.
