Thank you Mary

As we didn’t have an in-person AGM this year we, unfortunately, weren’t able to publicly thank Mary Holmes for her time as President of the club. So last month we bought a mug showing the occasion Colin Jackson visited the club, a vase commemorating her 11 years as the president and a basket of flowers.

Mary is our only remaining athlete who was a member when the Cambridge and Coleridge Athletic clubs merged in 1961 – so this is the 60th year of her membership; and has no intention of leaving anytime soon!

Until pre-Covid, Mary was a regular at the endurance training sessions on a Tuesday evening at the track and was for a time the fastest female 80-year-old park runner in the country.

Mary, thank you for your service to the club and we’re all looking forward to seeing your cheery face and hearing your supportive words at the track later in 2021 during safer times.
