18/01/2022 Made In Dagenham

As you may know , the council have decided to close the Key Theatre with effect from 17 January 2022. 

Sadly this means that the Made in Dagenham musical will not now take place in March , and the Werrington Joggers social event to the Key Theatre to see the show  on  4 March is cancelled. 

On a brighter note, Westwood Musical Society has negotiated with the Cresset Theatre in Bretton to perform Made in Dagenham  in May 2023 so the show may yet go on!  The Friday evening performance would be on 19 May 2023 - so save that date if you can.

The first issue is to seek refunds  to club members who have purchased tickets for the cancelled performance in March  - Rod McDonald is currently awaiting an update from the Key Theatre on the refund position and he will provide an update once he has had a response.   

Rod would like to thank members for their support and patience in this matter

16/11/2021 Rescheduled Theatre Trip

Revised date for Werrington Joggers social event : Key Theatre - 'Made in Dagenham' Friday 4 March 2022

Please note that the above theatre trip is now rescheduled for Friday 4 March 2022.

The original date in 2020 was of course cancelled due the Covid-19 lockdown, but  ''the show must go on'' and rehearsals are once again underway for the production to go ahead in March next year.

Rod McDonald, who is organising the theatre trip (and is also appearing in the show), would like to assure all members who bought tickets for the original date that  they will receive new tickets for the 2022 performance - Rod will distribute these nearer the date, so all you have to do in the meantime is ''hold the date''.

For those of you who haven't bought a ticket and would like to go - please contact Key Theatre Box Office on 01733 207239, or see Rod at the club on Tuesday evenings.

16/10/2021 Hold the Date - Boxing Day Run/Walk

'HOLD THE DATE - Boxing Day 26 December 2021 at 10am - Kings Cliffe Run / Walk

The traditional Werrington Joggers Boxing Day run / walk from Kings Cliffe  is going ahead this year ( Boris permitting!!).

Rod McDonald has kindly taken over the overall organisation of the event from George Prodrick.

Everything is as in previous years, starting at Kings Cliffe Village Hall at 10am. There will be two runs available, a long and short distance, and also the option of a walk, which George has agreed to lead, thus maintaining his link with this long standing event. 

There will be refreshments in the hall afterwards, and edible donations are always welcome. For a good sized cuppa - bring your own mug!

 As always although its completely free of charge any financial donations will kick off the clubs 2022 charity fund raising.

Please come along and support this traditional Christmas club event - a picturesque and satisfying run or walk - the perfect way to burn off those Christmas Day excesses. 

Families, visitors, children and dogs all welcome -   and you'll still be home in time for Boxing Day lunch'

13/05/2021 Covid-19 Update

I am delighted that following the announcements made by the Prime Minister on Monday, the club committee have agreed unanimously that we should resume club nights next week, Tuesday 18th May at 7pm. Having been in regular contact with the management team of the Sports Centre in the last 48 hours though there will be a need to do some things a little differently

Firstly as with the juniors, we will meet and remain outside the Sports Centre, (probably on the square of grass so as not to block the entrance) and we will not use the drama studio for announcements. I will keep announcements to a minimum and would ask that you try as best you can to maintain social distancing in the short time we are together as a large group

Secondly although we will be able to access the centre for the toilets prior to running, facemasks must be worn unless you have an exemption. After running only the small changing rooms at the far end of the changing room corridor will be available for our use and I believe these only contain one shower each. The main changing rooms used by the school will be locked and unavailable

We will operate in this manner until at least the date of the next Government review of its roadmap in June

If anyone has any questions please drop me a line at wjchairman@werringtonjoggers.co.uk

I appreciate that not everyone will want to return next week especially those members who have still to receive either a first or second vaccine, but I hope that when you do feel safe we will see you back very soon. In the meantime though, it has been a long 14 months and I look forward to seeing those who feel comfortable returning, back at the centre next Tuesday
