The Harriers latest charity donation.


As most of you are aware that the club has a long tradition of supporting local charities.  The latest was a donation of £500 to Ronald McDonald House in Birminham.


The House looks after families of children being treated at Birmingham Children’s Hospital - one of the top four specialist children’s hospitals in the UK. The Hospital sees over 240,000 patients each year from Birmingham, the West Midlands and beyond. The Hospital is a nationally designated specialist centre for epilepsy surgery and a trauma centre for the West Midlands, a national transplant centre, and a centre of excellence for complex heart conditions, the treatment of burns, cancer, liver and kidney disease. They also have a neonatal department and a paediatric intensive care unit.

Footpath closures.


These will effect summer routes 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16

It may be possible to go from the river in front of the Sun to the Civic Centre.


As work gets underway on the regeneration of Stafford town Centre all pathways surrounding the riverside site will be closed from Monday 7th July.

This will mean that available parking on the South Walls car park (opposite Staffordshire Place 1) will be significantly reduced, and in time this will also eventually close as work continues.

Work is now starting at Riverside following the demolition of the former Tesco car park on the opposite side of the river. In order for the work to be carried out safely, the footpath along Queensway will be closed, in addition to the path along the river next to the site and the pavement on the south side of South Walls.
