Stop the expulsion of Mansfield Harriers & A.C.

The on-going dispute between the Trustees of Berry Hill and Mansfield Harriers & AC has prevented the club having any home fixtures for more than 12 months and has disrupted the training of the athletes at the club. The expulsion of the club from the park will almost certainly lead to the folding of the club and thus leave the Mansfield area with no local athletics club, plus mean that the training and development of many youngsters from the area will stop. In the year of the London Olympics and the lasting legacy is this the message we want to send out to the Country and more widely the rest of the world.

      I was brought up in Mansfield and ran for the club when it was Berry Hill Ac and remember the work that went in campaigning to upgrade the track from cinder to tartan. I recently came back with my kids who are both good fell runners and we did attaining session on the track. I was really sad to learn the club had been expelled. After the Olympics it is vital that kids have somewhere to train if we are to have athletes of the future

      Has always been the home of athletics, and it plays a vital role in the health and fitness of kids in the area. Remember sport and kids development should come first
