Assault on 2 of our Coaches

It is with great anger and sadness that I need to advise all members that on Tuesday 26th July, whilst preparing for their 5k run, 2 of our coaches were assaulted and were taken to hospital as a result of their injuries.
The attacker had a knife which fortunately was not used
The police attended the incident and an arrest has been made.
Both coaches spent some time having injuries assessed and are now recovering at home
The incident happened near to the Bitton Railway Station, a spot I know is regularly used by our members so I would ask you all to be vigilant and try not to run in this area alone
This attack is both shocking and unprovoked and I am sure I speak for everyone when I express my anger that 2 lovely, kind men had to experience this and many of our newest members had to witness such a terrible attack
My thoughts are with everyone impacted. 
As a club, you all have our full support so please contact any member of the committee if you have any questions or concerns
