A happy new year from Hercules Wimbledon

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas and here’s looking forward to a successful 2017 for Hercules Wimbledon AC


It is going to be a little challenging at the beginning, but we will be back training at Wimbledon Park this Thursday, January 5th. As you all know, since the fire in the grandstand we have had no power in the stadium, however the Club has now bought temporary battery-powered lighting for the track and clubhouse. The lights will be stored in the container and will have to be put out and gathered in at every training session. This is a simple operation but it needs a team of people to get it done quickly and smoothly, so we are asking for volunteers on a rota basis. If you can help please email Fred Green asap.


We have been liaising closely with the council re the repair/rebuilding of the grandstand and the good news is that work is likely to begin towards the end of January. At this point power will also be restored to the clubhouse. So things are looking up and with support from members we can get through the first difficult months until the evenings get lighter.


Thank you in anticipation, and once again a Happy New Year to you all,

With best wishes,

Sheila White - Club Secretary - Hercules Wimbledon AC
