December has been a positive month for Silson, with the club moving up from 8th to 6th in the Chiltern League. Let us hope we can follow this up with another strong performance at Luton on December 3rd (HH Update – we did! Check out the Facebook Group and next month’s newsletter). Hopefully we can get teams in the Northants County Cross Country and also the Midlands. These races need to be entered before Christmas (see race fixtures below). Also to have 60 people attending a very successful awards evening at Silverstone SRA was another massive plus.
