London Marathon

Congratulations to Carlo Forte (Bexhill) who finished his first London Marathon today, despite his training being hampered by broken ribs and illness.

He finished the 26.2 mile course in a brilliant time of 3 hours, 24 mins, 11 secs, well ahead of the great majority of the other 39,000 competitors and just 13 minutes behind Olympic Gold medalist, Dame Kelly Holmes!

New Photo Gallery

The Gallery on the website has been redesigned so that it is now compatible with many more handheld and portable devices, as well as phones.

The photographs are touch responsive, there is now a search facility and there are simpler links to view newly added photos.

If anyone would like to send more photos, then do please email them to me.
