New SWVAC kit available to order jalblogo small 1

We are pleased to announce our new SWVAC kit ordering service hosted by justalittlebit.co.uk garment printers.

JALB have created a web page for SWVAC members to order their own kit in as wide a range of styles and sizes as it is possible to get.

JALB is a business run by runners, they know what we want. Printed just for you and delivered quickly to your own door, this service gets around most of the problems we have encountered providing kit supplies for you by ourselves. Their Freepost limit is just £30.00, this means about 2 items of kit.

For those not able to use the internet Paola King will continue to hold some stock or order in for you.

Paola's contact details are :- Telephone: 01425 673204 or Text: 07974 769322

Also there will be a display of kit for sale at the Track & Field Champs. at Exeter on June 17th and other events where she is able to attend.
