Hello Manorites and welcome to the latest issue of your Reporter. In this issue you’ll find all your Chingford League results and reports of other cross country events that the club took part in. This was the muddiest cross country season for very many years!

Welcome to the 2nd edition of The Reporter covering our centenary year. It’s been a tremendous year, full of races, dinners, quizzes and social events. All of this celebrating didn’t happen by chance, and in this issue you will see behind the scenes in the planning and execution of the Centenary Programme as Louise Vacher gives us an account of the work of the Centenary Committee and Steve Adams lets us into the secrets of organising a Centenary event.

I’d to thank John Few for his five and a half years of service as Editor. John has been very helpful and generous with his advice as I have put this edition together. He has also written a lovely short history of Eton Manor for the centenary. Meticulously researched, and with lots of great photos, it comes highly recommended. So if you haven’t already bought your copy, they are £3.00 each from a committee member.
