New Year Fun Run 2019 – Results

The 2019 Lenzie Jog broke all previous records for finishers – possibly down to the best weather in years.  The 2k run netted 183 runners, the 4.5k distance 110 and the twice-round 9k distance, 172 runners, making 468 in total.  

You can see the full, provisional results here (Lenzie Jog 2019 Results).  The 9k was won by Robert Simpson, who is prominent in this scene at the start (thanks to Martin Walker for the pic) in a time of 28 minutes 2 s.  Fergus Reid netted the  the 4.5k in 15 minutes 7s and Angus Fraser-Moodie completed the 2.4k route in 7 minutes 27s.

Lenzie Library

Lenzie Community Council has been made aware of news that there is a proposal to close Lenzie Library. We discussed this at the November meeting and had the benefit of input from various sources.

Libraries are not run by East Dunbartonshire Council directly but by the East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Cultural Trust (EDLCT). The funding still comes from the Council, but EDLCT provides the service according to a service agreement. As we understand the situation, the closure proposal has not as yet been put to East Dunbartonshire Council and there is therefore no response that we can report.

If you use Lenzie Library and have views on the possibility of closure, it would be reasonable to communicate these views to the Ward Councillors for Lenzie and South Kirkintilloch. If you are using email for this, you could send a copy of your message to Lenzie Community Council at lenziecommunitycouncil8@gmail.com. We will update this post when we have more information.
