Written by Committee
Sue & Ken Ford have decided to become ex-patriates in Cyprus with almost immediate effect and,very sadly,the Club will be losing the services of one of our longest-serving and ablest administrators.
Sue became General Secretary of the Royal Borough of Kingston AC shortly after her daughter,Andrea,joined up in January 1984 and,when that club merged with Polytechnic Harriers in 1985,she became Joint General Secretary,the start of a committed and fervent 'career' in athletics. Later she qualified as a High Jump coach,one of multi-eventer Andrea's best events,and often competed for the Senior Womens team in the throws,holding the club Vets hammer record at one time. In the 1990s,she took over also as Hon Treasurer from Peter Shilling.
K&P extend their enormous thanks to Sue for her substantial services to the sport and the club for over 20 years;and we wish her and Ken the most enjoyable retirement in sunny Cyprus.
We are delighted to bestow a Life Membership upon Sue,in addition to her Vice-Presidency,as a lasting tribute to her commitment. Salvete!
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
