Message from Bridget Cushen of British Masters:
Hi All. The long awaited Documentary from Selah Hennessy on the late Charles Eugster is scheduled for screening at 20.00 on BBC2 Thursday 24th, title The Pacemakers. She has been filming him and our other 80-plus sprinters for some time. I hope the Documentary does not disappoint. She has gone to a lot of personal expense. It should feature some of our other sprinters.
We have been informed of the death of one our oldest members, Peggy Taylor, who has died aged 97. In case any members are able to attend the funeral the details are as follows:
Friday, 21 July 2017 at 2.00 pm at: Emstrey Crematorium, London Road, Shrewsbury SY2 6PS
