Thornbury teenager Tabitha De N’Yeurt has been selected for the second year running to play for the England Fencing Squad at an international tournament.
Tabitha will travel to Poland as part of the U15 Girls Foil Squad, representing England at the ‘Challenge Wratislavia’ between 23rd – 26th March.
Tabitha trains five times a week at Thornbury Active Lifestyle Centre, using the gym and swimming pool facilities for endurance training. The centre has encouraged her commitment to training, as Centre Manager, Andy Robinson, explains: “It has been a privilege to support Tabitha as an athlete and watch her succeed through all her hard work and determination. She is a great inspiration to all of us here at the centre."
For the last 3 months, Thornbury parkrun has relied very heavily on the same set of volunteers who initially came forward last summer to get this event off the ground.
Now is the time where the event needs more volunteers to help out at the run each week. This will also allow all those people that have volunteered to actually take part and get to have a run around the Mundys on a Saturday!
As the weather improves and the mornings are brighter - please look at the Thornbury parkrun site for more details on how to take part - as a volunteer or as a particpant.
