Running track plan for Louth

WITH enthusiasm for athletics riding high after our success at the Olympics, plans are afoot to get a running track built in Louth.

Sir Peter Tapsell MP is meeting soon with Louth Athletic Club to discuss the need for, and ways of funding, a track.

The club’s John Jaines said: “A running track would be a great benefit to the local schools who at present have to run in dreadful conditions or go to Grimsby to use their facilities.”
