An ode to Tyne Bridge Harriers

For many of us, the coronavirus lockdown has meant we’ve had a lot of spare time on our hands. And while some have used it to sunbathe, binge watch TV box-sets and treat it as a mini-holiday (okay, just me – DD), other members have been using the time in more productive ways. Reflecting her …
