A helping hand for Heyford Aardvarks

Heyford Park

We are delighted to be supporting Heyford Aardvarks, a running club founded by a local resident.

The club took its name from the last plane to be stationed at Heyford Park (an Aardvark) and began life as a conversation on Facebook. It has quickly grown into a successful weekly running club of 15-20 people.

Thomas Hunter, founding member of the Aardvarks, commented: “I could never have dreamt that a social media post would have grown to the success of what the club is now. Since gaining the sponsorship, we have been able to put some of our committee members through coaching courses in order to better support our club members. We even have some merchandise to wear when we enter our cross-country events.”

Jeanne Evett, Sales and Marketing Director at Dorchester Living, said: “At Heyford Park we’re building a lot more than just homes and that means supporting local organisations where we can. We’re really impressed by the Aardvarks and hope they continue to attract more members.”
