Organisers go flat out for a five-star race

THE eighth annual Fishbourne Flat Five takes place on Sunday, July 8.

This hugely-popular event will, as ever, be a five-mile run or walk following the traditional course around the harbour.

Participants will meet at the Fishbourne Centre at 9.45am with the event starting at 10am.

It is aimed at competitive runners and first-timers as well as individuals or groups who enjoy walking round the harbour.

Money will be raised for the new children’s play area in Fishbourne village.

Co-organiser Geoff Hand said: “The play area task group are very grateful to everyone involved in this year’s FFF. The money raised will provide local children with exciting play activities and help their social, physical and mental development so they will lead healthier lives as future adults.”

Organisers hope for record entries. Forms and further details will be available from the www.fishbourneflatfive.co.uk or at Fishbourne Primary School, the Fishbourne Centre, Beckie Lou and Westgate Leisure – or you can contact Su Leeming on 01243 774311.
