It is with great sadness that we have to report that Peter Allen, Chairman of Halton & Frodsham Harriers, passed away last week in hospital aged 80.
Most of you will know Peter in some way, whether he was playing an active part in coaching, welcoming athletes and parents at club training sessions or on timekeeping duties most weekends at various Track & Field, Sportshall and Cross Country meetings.
Peter's involvement with the club spans many, many years and he will be greatly missed by all within Harriers and more widely across the athletics scene in Cheshire where he was a Vice President of the Cheshire County Athletics Association.
We are sure that you will all wish to send deepest condolences to his wife, Marian and his family.
Peter's funeral will take place at Walton Lea Crematorium on Monday 10th November at 11am. Family flowers only please, but donations to the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund can be made in Peter's memory.

Halton & Frodsham Harrier Jenny Pyatt has been selected to represent the North West in the upcoming Sainsbury's 2014 School Games which are taking place in Manchester in early September. Jenny has been competing over the last couple of years at the highest level of competition as an U15 and now as U17, and is currently ranked 8th nationally in the discus, despite being in the younger year of her age group.
From their website, the School Games are described as "an inspirational and motivational setting that ... provides our elite young sports people with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest levels"
Some more facts about the School Games:-
The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games is a multi-sport event that takes place from 4-7 September 2014 in Manchester.
Nine venues will host the event, including: the National Cycling Centre, the Phones 4 U Arena and Manchester Aquatics Centre.
The competition re-enforces the experience of Olympic and Paralympic Games complete with Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games and its predecessor the UK School Games (2006-2011) have a strong track-record of providing a springboard for athletes who then go on to compete at a national level. Several School Games alumni went on to be part of London 2012 Team GB & Paralympics GB. The Sainsbury's 2014 School Games will give us insight into the make-up of our teams for both the 2016 and 2020 Games.
Around 1,600 of the nation's finest young sports stars will compete.
Competition is held in twelve current and future Olympic and Paralympic sports: Fencing, Rugby Sevens, Gymnastics, Hockey, Badminton, Athletics, Cycling, Judo, Swimming, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Wheelchair Basketball.
There will be disability events in six sports: Athletics, Fencing, Swimming, Table Tennis, Cycling and Wheelchair Basketball.
Approximately 700 coaches, support staff and volunteers will give round-the-clock support and advice, collectively committing more than 22,000 hours of their time.
It's a great accolade for Jenny to have been selected, and we wish her all the best for the competition!!
Track season update

The summer holidays are nearly here, and the track season takes something of a break throughout August so that athletes, officials and coaches can take a well deserved breather after many weekends of competitions, with just the Upper Age Group match for the YDL still to take place next weekend.
The club records webpage has taken something of a battering this year, with at 25 club records now showing as having been improved this year, with several of those being improved upon more than once, and by more than one athlete, and there are still more to update after this weekend's fixtures.
In the Cheshire T&F League the league standings were last updated after the first 2 matches, putting the club overall in 13th place, with the U11s higher up the table in 11th place overall and likley to rise higher after the match 3 results are added into the league standings.
In the Youth Development League, the provisional results for the club show us finishing in 6th place in the league in the Lower Age Group (U13s / U15s) securing a place in the same division for next year, with the Upper Age Group likely to finish in the same place in their league.
Still to come later in the season is the final match of the Cheshire League on Sunday 7th September at Macclesfield where it would be great to see as many athletes as possible across all age groups taking part. The County Junior Multi-Events Championships takes place on 14th September, also at Macclesfield, with Open Meetings still to come at other clubs around the area before the winter fixtures of road racing, cross country and indoor Sportshall leagues start to kick in.
Remember to keep an eye on this website and also on the Facebook feed for the club for any news as the year progresses.
