Lliswerry Chairman Honoured

Lliswerry Runners’ Chairman Chris Davies has been recognised as an ‘outstanding individual’ by Prime Minister David Cameron.

Chris was amongst those given a Point of Light award in February 2015. These awards, given by 10 Downing Street,  recognise outstanding individuals - people who are making a change in their community and inspiring others.

This is a richly deserved honour and recognition for the countless hours Chris devotes to making running accessible to all who would like to have a go. The various articles quite rightly focused on his work with parkrun as an Ambassador for Wales, but did not mention the effort he invests into Lliswerry Runners as well, making sure there are organised coaching sessions for us to participate in every week of the year.

So congratulations Chris and very many thanks to Julia for all her support as well.
