On Thursday all our groups had a Christmas surprise after being diverted up Brandon Hill and greeted with mulled wine and Christmas treats underneath Cabot Tower. Thanks to Santa's helpers Jo, Liz and Laura for doling out the lovely mulled wine.

We then returned to the Southbank Club for live music from Battlemoose and the 2017 Volunteer Awards. This year's winners were:

David Braithwaite - Coach of the Year - for founding and leading the Run/Walk group for many years
Anne Cooper - Photographer of the Year - for turning up to support and photograph us at local races and events
Jim Sheeran - New Idea of the Year - for organising the track sessions we enjoyed this year and next year
Joanne Finkel - Co-ordinator of the Year - for organising volunteers for the Nightingale Nightmare, Bristol 10k, Bristol Half, not to mention yesterday's Christmas do
Laura Collacott - Unsung Hero of the Year - for years of hard work and being a tough act to follow as Club Secretary

Thanks to all our volunteers including the many who were nominated but we didn't have space to recognise here. Please keep your nominations coming in 2018.
