Congratulations to Club Coaches

First Aid

A huge well done goes to Linden Nicholson, Linda Smith, Kirk Smith and Margaret Benham who this week completed and passed their First Aid course and are now qualified for the next 3 years.  The coaches are pictured proudly showing of their certificates from the course.

We hope to be running another course later on in the year for those who were unable to attend this course for Coaches or Volunteers.

Please keep an eye on the website for further details in due course.

Well done again!


Queen’s Baton Relay

Congratulations to all the Lasswade AC athletes and coaches who had the honour of carrying the Queen’s Baton through Midlothian today, 16 June 2014.  It was a fantastic day and the girls all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was wonderful to see the club so well represented at this event. It was also great to see so many people (Lasswade coaches, officials, athletes,  parents, family and friends) out on the course supporting the girls. Thanks to everyone for their support and helping to make this such a memorable day.


Pictured above from left to right our baton carriers are:

Amy Frankland, Erin Feely, Sophie Miller, Linda Smith (Coach) and Sabina Jedrzejczyk.

Well done girls!!

Lasswade Calling

David Hand sent Guy Learmonth a note of congratulations on his recent 800m performance and new personal best of 1.46.85. I attach a copy of the reply from Guy.


Hi David,
Good to hear from you! Thanks for the wishes about PB and all else too. Things really cranking up with me, obviously very busy but extremely excited for the Games now, just have to keep the head down and keep working away. I’ll be knocking out these1.45s soon enough!
Send my regards to everyone at Lasswade.
Hope you’re well too!
