What a lovely little video played for Stuart Nunn at the England Athletics South West Regional Volunteer Awards! Do take a couple of minutes to watch!Stuart has been involved in athletics since 1986.He first began volunteering as a track judge whilst attending comps with his daughter.From there he became a qualified starter and this is a role he still plays at nearly all Yate AC matches and many county/regional matches to this day. (A ‘claim to fame’ is that he was the starter for the first ever 4 minute mile in Avon!) In addition to his long service as an official, Stuart has also held a vast variety of other roles. He has been on the club committee since 1987 - that’s a whole lot of committee meetings! • Publicity & Press Officer twice, 1987-1994 & 2010-2018. (He still writes match reports for local press & a club blog)• Officials’ Co-ordinator• Chairman of the club twice, 1990-93 & 2010-14• Vice-President 1997-2019• Club Secretary, 2019 – present day. (Never have you seen anyone who can produce committee meeting minutes so fast!) He is always the first to volunteer for official’s duties, whether at the prestigious National Athletics League, or for our own Quadkids competitions. He takes time in his role as a starter to encourage & teach young athletes on the start line.Stuart has recently been involved in setting up the club with a new electronic start system which he has competently mastered.He has also been the chairman of the Avon Athletics Association where he helped to set up the Avon Network.Stuart is a much loved member of Yate AC & athletics community and Yate AC would definitely not be where it is today without Stuart’s involvement over the years. Thank you Stuart for all you have done, and continue to do, for Yate AC. ... See MoreSee Less

Stuart is a Level 3 official who regularly volunteers at @YateAC, county and regional competitions. He takes time to encourage others to get involved in volunteering, especially as a starter. Recently, he was instrumental in setting up the club with a new electronic start system.

Our final winner Pat dedicates her time to coaching young female athletes for @WestburyH & @YateAC. She’s an inspiration to many athletes who until a few years ago would see her completing her own training before starting her coached session, utilising her knowledge & experience.

The committee have now sent out an email to all of our club members regarding the proposed changes to junior age groups.
This can also be viewed on our website.
Links to the @EnglandAthletic consultation survey are also included (closes 23 October).
