Newsletter 21/2014

Hi everyone

This Saturday is the last day for the Club’s use of the clubrooms.  We would appreciate help with cleanup either before the AGM from 1pm, or after our run/walk.
I also wish to have all cups/trophies returned for prizegiving by this Saturday.
Thirdly, prizegiving is only two weeks away, and I have had little response so far.  Please let me know you are attending, and make payment into our account as soon as possible.

For those who want to enjoy a relaxed hour long run, you are welcome to join Steve Robertson (Deputy Club Captain) who leads a pack run from the Lower Hutt Shoe Clinic at 6pm every Thursday evening. The packs go out for around an hour. Please meet at the Shoe Clinic, High Street, Lower Hutt by 5.55pm.


The Shoe Clinic

The Shoe Clinic has once again confirmed that it will continue to sponsor HVH for yet another year. For every dollar members spend on product at the Lower Hutt Shoe Clinic, the Shoe Clinic will donate 10% back to HVH at the end of the year. All you have to do is tell Rob and staff that you are a member of HVH and they will record your purchase to ensure it contributes to a donation for the club.

Supporting the Shoe Clinic means you are supporting the club.

The Mad Butcher

The Lower Hutt Mad Butcher has once again agreed to support our club by providing sausages for our club run day barbeques. We appreciate the support the Mad Butcher gives us and ask members to return this support by considering purchasing your meat produce from the Lower Hutt Mad Butcher.
