Runs and races with Beeston AC




Sad news: We are sorry to report that Ken Sharp, a long-time member of Siemens/Beeston AC, has passed away and we would like to pass on condolences to the family. The Club is planning to send flowers/a charity contribution and a few of us would like to raise a glass in Ken’s memory this Friday in the Crown. All are welcome to join us. A couple of photos of Ken on club trips are attached.
