The sun shone on Newent for the 2014 Forest of Dean District school cross country championship the going was good to soft & the children turned out in coach loads.

 The 2014 Championship was sponsored & supported by the Forest of Dean Athletics Club based at Lakers School. Vice Chair & Head Coach Pete Compton was on hand to present the prizes. Pete said “Its a real honour for the club to get involved with the Schools Championship & this years has be particularly exciting because of the new team prizes as well as the individuals awards. The first 6 from each school counts towards the team prize giving everyone a chance to contribute to their school’s success. This year the club has provided the 6 team shields & an overall prize shield as well as the medals for the gold silver & bronze for each age group. It was wonderful to hear the children cheer on their class mates through the finish.

The Athletics club has a long history of success in Cross Country competitions entering both the Gloucestershire & Gwent Cross country leagues in all age groups from U11 to over 60’s all supporting each other to success.

We are blessed to have so many talented coaches in the Forest with Ann Nixon & Dave Lucas leading the way every Tuesday & Thursday at Lakers School 6.15-7.30 everyone welcome.
