The weekend just gone brought some warm weather for a change,and,though teamwise results(SWL/NJL) were solid rather than spectacular,there were some very useful performances,a fair few PBs and two Open Womens' Club Records. More in the match reports to follow on this site but Pippa Wingate fulfilled a winter prophesy by taking Camilla Thrush's Hammer standard(by 3 cms!! to 39m59) at Reading and the revitalised Dominique Blaize clipped a further 0.1 off her own 100 metres mark with 11.8 at Yeovil.
