Weston Athletic Club celebrates a year of achievements

Last weekend, 150 of Weston Athletic Club’s members gathered at the Winter Gardens for a night of celebration, marking the many and varied achievements of club members throughout the year. A three course meal was followed by an opening address from the club’s chairman Ian Carpenter who then invited guest of honour Tony Roper to speak, recognising the club’s 40th anniversary in 2018. Tony was one of the club’s original members and regaled the guests with his tales of running during the club’s formative years.


Ian then handed over to Jim Wotton who presided over the awards ceremony. Jim gave a round-up of the club’s year of running before moving onto the awards themselves. It was a notable evening for many members thanks to their efforts throughout the year, with the most awards going to Matt Wheeler, Nia Davies and Kieron Summers... Read more

Seconds best for Weston

A cool calm Valentine’s Day evening set the scene for the February five mile prom run organised by Weston Athletic Club. An impressive 279 runners ditched the hearts and flowers to test their mettle over the fast, flat route.

Immy Moroney enjoyed another great race finishing second female overall in 30.07, knocking almost 30 seconds off her previous best, edging tantalisingly close to the coveted sub-30 club. Susan Duncan took second club spot for the women in 31.38, followed by Michelle Fryer in 34.22... Read more

Important message for existing and new Hutton Moor Leisure Centre members

04/02/2019

I am pleased to confirm that Hutton Moor will now be offering Weston Athletic Club members discounted membership.

The price for a Weston AC membership will be: 18-59 year old - £33.15 per month by direct debit or £358.02 by single payment for annual membership.

The price for a Weston AC membership will be: 60+ - £27.70 per month by direct debit or £293.76 by single payment for annual membership.

With the direct debit membership type once your first direct debit has been paid you can leave HM by giving just 2 months notice.

This reduced monthly/annual rate will apply both to any new and all existing members. As HM will not currently know that you are members of Weston Athletic Club all that you need to do prior to your next DD being taken from your account is to visit the membership desk with proof that you are a member of Weston AC. This proof could be your membership card or copy of your most recent renewal letter (on your phone). I believe that HM will need to get you to complete a new DD (contract) for the revised amount.

Any problems at all please contact me or refer HM staff to Kylie Taylor - North Somerset Sales Manager, Legacy Leisure.

Regards

Jim Wotton
