35th Anniversary Party
35th Anniversary Party - Saturday 30th September 2017 - 7pm till Midnight
Many ELR Members, some who had joined the Club in the 1980's and 1990's gathered together with current day members, partners, friends and guests from Leyton Sports Massage(Katherine), LFB (Narinder) and Colworth Striders (Trevor) to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the founding of East London Runners in May 1982.
The Venue was the Wanstead Sports Club in Blake Hall Road and Social secretary Sonia together with her Party Planning team of Ciaran, Jenny, Ellie and Lance with on the day help from Don and Jonathan set about the transformation of the grounds and Hall.
Inside the hall the giant 1982 letters featured and together with the red and white balloons the glittering backdrop and subdued lighting all was set for a great night.
Outside the ELR Gazebo and two windflags were added to great effect.
Guests enjoyed Paella which was cooked on site in a pop up restaurant just outside the front door by Spanish Labs and later in the evening with ice creams.
Chair Frank Brownlie said a few words of greeting to all who attended and remarked that it was due to the loyalty and dedication of many members during the past 35 years that we were today thriving successfully.
Frank also spoke in fond memory of Roger Dixon, Life Member and Treasurer of ELR who had many, many friends within the Club over the past 30 years but who had tragically passed away while on holiday on 13th September 2017.
Following Awards for those members who had completed races in the past year in a time of 35 minutes approx and a very successful raffle the music was turned up and the party really started and with the Bar open until 12.30am a good time was had by all!
See you there!
