We opened the 2024 running season at the Easter weekend. Throughout the winter, our members have been busy building new permanent way. We are grateful to Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council for their financial support with this venture.

The group meets at the Park Track on Thursdays to carry out maintenance from around 10:30. Any assistance is greatly welcomed. If the weather is bad the meeting is held in Severn Park Cafe, adjacent to Newtown Bus Station.
