HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLIE !

On behalf of all Denmead Striders we would like to extend our very best wishes and congratulations to you on reaching your 90th birthday last Friday (25th June).

Fellow founder member, Gerard Beauvoisin (“Titch “) and former Strider Nuala presented Charlie with an appropriate “Then and Now” memento to mark the occasion annotated with his familiar “C’mon Striders” expression of encouragement to be heard at most races as his runners approached the finish line.

A big thank you to Gerard and Nuala for making this presentation on behalf of the Striders.

Charlie Burton founded the club 32 years ago along with a small number of enthusiastic runners in the Denmead/Waterlooville area. From modest beginnings, Charlie has seen the club grow both in size (but not too large) and amazing athletic achievemens to the friendly organisation we all know and love today. As you know he still keeps an active interest in our activities and knows what everybody is up to!   Thank you Charlie for founding the club; you have been an inspiration for us all and will be for future generations.

Many, many Happy Returns to come from us all😄
