Images of the club are welcome

The club communications team would like to update the scrolling “Welcome” banner on this website with more up to date photos that show the diversity of the sport and our members. We require images from track and field, road, cross country and race walking. Action shots are best but static group photos are welcome too.  Please bear in mind that they need to be cropped by the coms team to fit the format of the banner. If you do have images you think are suitable please email them to Martin at mbateman@hillingdonac.co.uk  Please don’t send galleries of images, just select a few of the best ones you have.
