  1. Do You Still Want Tea? (there is still time to e-mail the Captain with your comments and opinions)

For those new to the club tea & biscuits after the run was an important social opportunity which we have missed for the past 2 years. Having had to meet outside we returned to providing tea inside TLC several months ago. However we have had very few people come inside. We are now considering if we should cancel our room booking and would like your comments please. By cancelling it we save money and avoid the need for a tea rota. However we do miss out on a warm place to meet before & after and a social opportunity. If we cancel now the room may not be available to us in the future. We will review all your comments at the committee meeting 10/1/22. Thanks. Please e-mail Kevin captain@thornburyrunningclub.co.uk
