Enquiry from Ronnie Melrose:
I’m the Vice President of Neilston Agricultural Society, and as you may be aware, we have traditionally held a local cross country run “The Pad Run” as part of the Neilston Cattle Show on the first Saturday in May. Unfortunately last year we did not have a Pad Run, as we couldn’t find anyone from the Agricultural Society to take on the organisation. I’m keen to get this event re-instated as there were quite a few disappointed runners last year, and I wondered if anyone from Kilbarchan would be able to assist us in making this happen. We will have a number of volunteers to help on the day with marshalling, but we need someone with expertise in running who knows what we need to do, to make this a runner in 2018.
If you think this is something Kilbarchan can help with, please give me a call on 0751 357 7606, and we can discuss further.
