Hasn`t taken long to get back into the usual weekly scramble for volunteers, last week we nearly pulled the timekeepers to marshall points and were going to give everyone 59:59.
Ironic that people were screaming blue murder for parkrun to restart yet its the same old faces doing the jobs that make it happen.
A new local one was launched at Watermead which took some pressure off but we`ve also lost some volunteers to it!
Gammy leg precludes me from joining in at the moment.

Same here, we've also lost 2 run directors during lockdown for various reasons which only leaves us with 2, nobody seems keen to take it on but its not sustainable long term.:(

Everything is just a little strange at the moment re Parkrun, hopefully things will settle to a new normal soon. Lots of people who were regular volunteers (non runners, but enjoyed the social part of it especially some of the more elderly of the Parkrun community), may, I suspect, still be cautious of large groups for medical reasons. The world is different now, some changes will be permanent, but many I think will slowly return.

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
