Thompson 5K run - Saturday 23 July 2011

23 July 2011 was the first ever Thompson 5k run.  Following on from a very successful event that was held regularly in the village up to a few years ago, this run proved to be very popular with young and not quite so young from both Thompson and the surrounding villages.

Our warm and genuine thanks to Laurie Hull, Active Norfolk, Thompson WI, and everybody else who helped make this day so special.
