Friday night’s social/presentation evening at East Grinstead Town Football Club
It was great to see so many people at the football club on Friday evening for our annual social and presentation evening. As usual the main part of the evening was to present medals and trophies to our successful athletes from the summer of 2015, although a quiz set by Alf Smart was a new feature this year.

Cross-Country last Saturday
Some of those who went to the previous night’s social evening then went down to Bexhill for the second match in the Sussex Cross-Country league – the muddiest course in Sussex and, on Saturday, the windiest day that anybody could remember for the league. I don’t yet have the results and I’ll update when I can.
