AGM and Social 2015

Your Club Needs You!

It's that time of year again - the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

We will be electing the club's committee and support volunteers in order to run the club for the 2015 - 2016 season.

Club awards will also be given out!

Come along to support the club and to make any suggestions about how we can make East End Road Runners even better!

We also think it's a great opportunity for the members to get together (in civilian clothing rather than lycra!) and a quiz will be taking place immediately following the AGM so have your brains at the ready!

Family and friends (including children) are welcome to join so bring them along! More information on this to follow...

We have secured the top floor of The Cow in Stratford Westfield - food and drink will therefore be available to purchase should you be hungry/thirsty!

The AGM will start at 7pm but feel free to come along early and grab a drink!

If you are interested in standing for the committee or volunteering, please contact/grab Rod or one of the committee members for more information.

Save the date now!!! Monday 20th April - 1 hour of your time on this day will help run EERR for a whole season!!
