Woodbridge Run 19th February cancelled

Unfortunately the run at Woodbridge this Sunday 19th Feb has had to be cancelled.

– The park is still closed

– Around 1km of the path is still under water

– To get to the start you need to wade through ankle deep water

– The smell is disgusting

– Saturday parkrun is cancelled

 

Thanks to John Smith for all his preparatory work – we look forward to the inaugural run in 2018

 

It is too short notice to arrange an alternative run

 

Funeral Notice

Friends are warmly invited to the Funeral Service for Dermot (Derry) Foley of East Victoria Park in Seasons Chapel, 1 Tulloch Way, Canning Vale at 3.00pm, Friday (17.02.2017). No flowers by request.

Woodbridge

Yesterday the Woodbridge cycle path was completely flooded and the park closed.

It is likely that the water will recede and we will be ok on Sunday. However keep an eye on the website as we will place a post if we have to cancel the run

Vale Derry Foley

It is with sadness we report the passing of Derry Foley. Derry was a fine sprinter. He would always lament his lack of “wind”. A true fast twitch man. He competed in the Perth Worlds in the M85 100m and jumps, gaining an Australian record in the 4 x 100m.

His jump records have lasted a few years. As an M80 he was playing 18 holes of golf and then turning up at the track to jump. He was a humble and cheerful Irishman. His daughter Marie-Claire joined the club in 1997. Derry is survived by his wife Geraldine.
