Hampden sports days have been a great success since the start and this one was no different. It was also one of our busiest which was also great to see. This day comprised of some rugby training to tie in with the 6 Nations tournament being held at the moment, the other event was an obstacle course which got some hearts racing. There are 2 more Hampden sports days left, 14th March and the 28th March. Hopefully see you all at the next event!

 

7th February 2015

On behalf of Short Stature Scotland, I would like to say that the AGM which took place on 7th February 2015 was very successful with a great turn out by members. During the AGM we recapped the years events and also our accounts. It is with also sad news that two of our long term committee members stepped down their roles. Jackie Millan has been a fantastic chairperson over the past 7 years and will be greatly missed and will be hard to replicate. Maureen Copeland also stepped down as secretary. She has been a fantastic asset for the committee and has helped in the application process for past lottery grants. I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Jackie and Maureen and wish them the best!
