Events round-up

Weekend of 18/19 March

Full steam ahead

The penultimate junior event of the season saw us at an established forest league venue overlooked by the Quantocks. The tooting steam trains arriving and departing from the vintage station nearby always lends something to the atmosphere...full steam ahead, JOGgers!

JOG at Ash Priors Common

Surprisingly challenging area

We had a fine spring day to enjoy a relatively new area which offers a nice contrast to our other JOG venues. It's strangely reminiscent of the New Forest, the terrain is relatively flat with a patchwork of woodland and large clearings, bisected by minor roads and streams.
