Hi there Pirates Members
Well done to the Road Running Section on organising a fantastic 21km Road Race last Sunday. It all seemed to go very well and we received so many compliments – bit well done for all the hard work.
I am sure many of you noticed how nice and clean the entrance to Pirates is looking – well this is all down to the hard work of Glynis Mauldon who spent the whole day working with the Pirates staff to get the entrance looking fantastic. Once again Pirates is doing the work of the Council but your hard work is greatly appreciated Glynis – you make us proud of our great club.
