Wanstead, E11 2EY- from 7.30 pm until close.

There is music in the garden which stops at 10.30pm and the garden closes at 11pm. The Pub is open until 12.30am. We will be in the garden area with a circus tent style roof with heaters and can overspill into the pub. A buffet will be served from 8.15pm and the awards presented at 9.30pm.
As in past years it is free to club members, on a first come first served basis as we have a max 15 places at the moment.
Please contact Gabriel Ellenberg if you are interested in attending. It would be great if we were well represented and it was a nice evening last year.
Tom and Joan retired from their official (and numerous unofficial) roles. As Rachel stated at the AGM – they have done an enormous amount for the club over many years and we are very grateful to them both. Fortunately they have not abandoned us altogether and we still continue to see them at club events and in The Hare & Hounds
You’ll see that it has been a busy season with Assembly League races and Elvis League ones too. Well done to everyone who has turned up to race for the club in all of the races. I’ve heard people saying as we gather in our blue and white stripes that they’re very impressed by the numbers of Manorites who turn out for races. It’s generally recognized that we “punch above our weight”. So well done to all and let’s keep increasing those numbers during the winter crosscountry season.
Thank you to Alison for all of her hard work in editing The Reporter for the last few years. She has passed her mantle to me and I hope to continue in her footsteps (pun not intended!)
This edition contains results from the Assembly and Elvis leagues, where several Manorites won prizes. Tom has also written a history of the Assembly League which celebrated its fortieth anniversary this year as well as continuing with his pen portraits.
Race reports and results from the Chingford League are towards the end. This was a great season for the women’s team who were victorious in the Senior Women’s category and the Veterans’ Category. Many congratulations to all who raced. A new committee is now in place, and you’ll see their pictures, with the positions they hold on the back of this edition.
