Club news: Stowmarket Striders celebrated the achievements of its younger members at a festive celebration

The last Junior Strider session of the year was devoted to a Christmas party and awards night.

After games and a fun dinner at Mid Suffolk Leisure Centre, Stowmarket, the coaches handed out certificates and awards to the children who had achieved certain time standards for 800m and one mile distances.

But the big winners of the night were Harry Tilbrook (14) and Josephine Beer (9) who won the new perpetual awards - the Phil Rampley shield and the Charlotte Cobbold cup.

Phil was on hand to give the award to Harry, who was praised for his enthusiasm and dedication to running. The Charlotte Cobbold cup was awarded by coach Sue Garrod in memory of a young Strider who died tragically last year, and Josephine was chosen as the first recipient for her improvement in running times and the number of races she has represented Striders in.

The junior sessions meet every Tuesday from 6-7pm for fun training sessions. They will start again in the new year and for more information please visit www.stowmarketstriders.org.uk
