Compton Harriers Christmas Meal 2014 Sue Martin has suggested a venue for this year’s Christmas meal and, in making the suggestion, has duly volunteered himself to organise the event! The suggested pub is The Kingswell, on the A417 between Upton and Harwell – a venue which will be new to most of the Harriers. Martin has made enquiries and expects to receive a Christmas menu in the near future. A suggested date is the last Saturday (evening) before Christmas.

Race Results and Reports Maidenhead Half, 7th September The fourth annual Maidenhead Half took place on a 2-lap course around Maidenhead and Cookham, finishing outside Maidenhead Town Hall.
