The Tour of the Hills is the Club’s major event and requires a large amount of support to enable it to take place, including volunteer marshals.  Marshalling is not an onerous job, but an essential one, as well as being very rewarding; competitors in the past have been full of appreciation for the work of the marshals.   The event is now only 4 weeks away, on Sunday 20th August, so please volunteer now by contacting me at  Those first to respond will have the best chance of getting their preferred marshal post and time slot (early – 10.15 onwards, late 12.30 onwards), so please let me know your preference when responding.  Whenever you assist, please make sure that you visit Shere Village Hall and tuck into the superb food provided by other club volunteers, for both you and the competitors.
It is worth mentioning that the Tour of the Hills, although having a deliberately low entry fee, enables the Club to remain solvent and help pay for such universal club benefits as ICE (in case of emergency) cards, subsidies on club clothing, and first aid training.  It is therefore so appropriate that it is supported widely by club members.
Thank you for your support.
