50th Anniversary Dinner

 Many thanks to all the members of the organising committee and all who contributed  to provide such a superb evening at the Marriot Hotel  last Saturday.

One could not have imaged back in 1962 that 50 years on so many would gather together as members, past members, supporters, volunteers  or just friends to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of Swansea Harriers and recognise  the success it has achieved.
