Harriers for Headway



On the 27th of March the first event for the Harriers for Headway Charity took place. It was a fashion show at the Cricket Club and almost 100 ladies turned up to the event.


Over £500 was raised and the ladies who organised it want to give a big thank you to everyone who turned up. It was a great start to the years fundraising. Keep an eye open for the next event.


Here are some of the ladies enjoying the evening.


Harriers Handicap




The Pete Hodgett's Harriers Handicap will take place on Sunday 12th April (9.30 for 10.00). If you are not running then please come along and support and help out. The more the merrier.




Harriers are going to The Dogs (again)

Saturday 16th May 2015


Here is the long awaited announcement re our annual trip to Monmore Green for the greyhound racing.


Liz Stanyer has secured us the usual package at the venue which includes,



Race Card

Scampi, Chicken or *Beefburger and chips (*Veggie burger option)

2 Drinks from the bar

2 Forecast Tote Bets

Jackpot Tote Bet


The cost for all of that is just £16, with the cost of the transport to Wolverhampton is £5

The coach booked is a 33 seater, so the first 33 of you to give Liz Stanyer £21 will be booked.

This sells out quickly every year and will no doubt sell out again.


You snooze you lose.


Liz will be down the club Tuesday and Thursday this week and at the Handicap on the 12th April. Get your money to her there or give it to a committee member to give to her.
