Thank you from Doug Scott
“REALLY GENUINE “BIG THANKYOU TO ALL FOR YOUR BEST WISHES SENT TO DOUG SCOTT; EITHER IN BIRTHDAY CARD OR TELEPHONE MESSAGES FOR HIS 70TH BIRTHDAY “
and from Pam Best
A brilliant achievement ! as Doug still enjoys his morning group sessions on The Stray , along with running in the woods & along the beach, with Harrier friends , alongside a keen participation in the local races ( pre COVID) .
In my position as welfare officer it was with pleasure that Pete and I were able to choose a large garden pot, and plant up to give a continuous display of flowers over the seasons, ( a big ask, when Doug has a garden Monty Don & Alan Titchmarsh would be proud of ) to recognise Doug's 70th birthday , along with some of his favoured beers and club birthday card . Now becoming a Life Member.
There will be Harriers who don’t know Doug, alongside his running and helping with marshalling duties, he was an active member of the committee for several years back in 2012 onwards as vice chairman, and acting chairman , and was part of the presentation evening committee group which was very much appreciated by all.
Doug & Doreen have been friends of many club members for years and we wish them continued good health & happiness whilst enjoying the benefits of “ good old sea air” and living close to the beach.
** Over the last year we have recognised “special birthdays “ (50, 60, 70 , 80 year old ) by sending a “Birthday wishes Card, Very special one coming up 30Th August is Gerry Aarons who will be joining several others in becoming an Octogenerian.
This goes to prove that being an active club member and enjoying the delights of athletics can only be of benefit to all ages …..stay safe & healthy ; Pam Best
