Bank Holiday Fun Run – Thank You

Cooler temperatures and overcast skies enabled the annual Ashdon Primary School 10K and Fun Run to attract record numbers on Bank Holiday Monday. With the added support of members of Saffron Walden Football Club’s youth section who used the run as part of a fundraising event for their new 3G pitch, over 600 people visited the village school on the day. Headteacher Gary Brown thanked the PTA organising committee for their efforts in making the day such a success. “It has been another amazing event, the team behind the event spend hours preparing for the race, and it is great to see their efforts rewarded.” Some of the money raised will be used to purchase a smartboard for the Reception Class.
