(4) CONGRATULATIONS TO BILL LUCAS DFC

Former Surrey president and team manager Bill Lucas, DFC, was guest of honour at a celebration tea at Belgrave Hall on Sunday to mark 80 years' membership of Belgrave Harriers. Bill, who is in his 100th year, represented Britain in the 5000m at the Wembley Olympics in 1948 after just one year's training after serving in the RAF's Bomber Command for seven years and flying 81 missions, surviving unharmed. When he retired from active athletics, Bill was a valuable asset for the county as team manager during one of the most successful periods for Surrey in the UK Inter-Counties cross country championships.
Many older members of Belgrave Harriers and representatives of the South of England AA and Surrey County AA were at the celebration tea which was attended by about 50 people.
Bill thanked those present with an amazingly lucid and fascinating address which included explaining how he came to join Belgrave in 1936.
In one of the two pictures taken by Mike Fleet, Belgrave chairman John Powell is presenting Bill with a commemoration vase and, in the other, Bill is surrounded by many of the athletes he managed during his period as Belgrave's cross country team manager. In the centre is a painting of him running in June 1952 at a meeting to mark the opening of the Wimbledon Park track. Profile.

(20) SURREY UNDER-20 HAMMER RECORD

Gareth Cook has informed us that he threw the 6kg Hammer 63.80m whilst representing England Schools in the ISF World Gymnasiade held in Nice on 4/6 June 1986. This performance is now recognised as the Surrey Record. Gareth's 1986 performance was previously shown as the County record because, in 1986, in the UK, Under-20 Men were throwing a 6.25kg Hammer and Gareth's throw being achieved under International Rules which prescribed a 6kg Hammer meant that his throw was not included in the UK rankings.
