The race and walk was followed by refreshments in the Community Centre, where the prizes were presented. A special word of thanks on behalf of the Centre Committee must go to all the volunteers on the day who helped in any way, without these volunteers the race could not take place.

Finally, the Management Committee would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
