Congratulations to Blackheath and Bromley for reaching their 150 years. They celebrated in fine style with an Anniversary Dinner at the House of Commons. Despite being a relatively young club by Thames standards (sorry couldn’t resist…), Blackheath & Bromley have achieved great success over the years and they continue to make great contributions to their local community and particularly the wider UK Athletics community.
Thames President, Mike Farmery was an invited guest at the Anniversary Dinner along with the Presidents of Orion, South London Harriers and Ranelagh, Myra Nimmo (Chair UK Athletics) and Mike McFarlane (Guest Speaker and current B&B President Julian Golding’s early coach). It was a splendid affair with great speeches describing both past successes and more importantly current achievements. Whilst being one of the oldest athletic clubs, B&B has managed to stay vibrant and continue to produce great athletes through their development programmes.
