LAUNCH OF THE SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS NEW CLUB KIT – We are pleased to announce, the launch of our new club kit, for Men, Women and Kids.
Over the past year we carried out many consultations with a number of SBH members. Following this the SBH Council reviewed the consultation results, and the final list of kit was agreed. At the same time negotiations took place with “Supreme Sports”, who provided us samples of various items of kit. The samples were of good quality, and the costs for each item of kit was then agreed.

COLUMBA BLANGO WINS 400m GOLD IN EUROPEANS – COLUMBA has just come back from Bydgoszcz in Poland, where he won the gold medal in the T20 400m at the European Para Championships. In the Final COLUMBA produced a personal best (47.90) taking .39 of a second off his 2019 time, and ranks him UK No.1 T20 in 2021.
One thing I told COLUMBA, that after completing his 400m final in Bydgoszcz, this was his 142nd career race. Question has any other Shaftesbury athlete, come anywhere near this mark, please let me know.
COLUMBA started his athletics career with South London Harriers in 2010, and ran his first 400m race that year. He then joined Victoria Park & Tower Hamlets in 2016 until 2019, when he joined Shaftesbury. His notable performances include, Bronze medallist at the Middlesex Championships 200m 2016. Silver Medallist Indoor 400m South of England Championship 2018. Silver Medallist 400m Middlesex County Championships 2018. Gold Medallist 400m Champion Middlesex Indoors and Outdoors.
Beginning – I had a slow and under developed cognitive thought process growing up. This affected my ability to absorb, interpret and understand information when spoken to. Regularly psychological testing was done to assess my cognitive abilities and would be a while until I was at the stage of independent thinking without the aid of others for assistance. As I got older, that was no longer an issue as I had grown past those obstacles.
Athletics – My participation in athletics started from 14 years but it was already evident my talent for the sport came naturally. It was a matter of nurturing my natural talent for athletics which gave me a greater focus over my energy in the long term. It was really up to 16 years where I started taking athletics seriously joining my first club South London Harriers based at Crystal Palace. From then, I had progressed into the athlete I am now.
T20 Category – This category falls under cognitive functioning of the mind whereby you are unable to clearly understand information. As my event in this category is the 400m, it is the hardest race in all other 400m category races to participate in. Personally, in my condition, I am better off now when I was before 18 years where it was more challenging then. Participating in athletics with these field of athletes has given me a greater level of respect having been exposed around able and non-abled athlete environments.
Classification – Classification had just been confirmed in December 2020 but was not internationally classified in the T20 till April 2021. To further elaborate on the classification, I first had to confirm my abilities in the race held in Italy Venice which was successful. From there, I had only progressed rapidly via hard work and enjoying the progression of learning and being the best athlete I can be. Recently, my latest achievement is European record holder and champion over the T20 400m in Poland, Bydgoszcz. I have not fully grasped the weight of the accomplishment but looking to achieve more and remain humble doing it also.
JONATHAN KILSBY’S MEMORIAL DAY – JONATHAN loved Trent Park; as children, we lived only a few hundred yards from its entrance and, throughout his life, it was a one of his favourite training areas. To commemorate JONATHAN’S life, we are going to have a walk-in Trent Park on Saturday 31st July. All of JONATHAN’S friends, family and colleagues are invited to join us. It will be a very informal event, with a walk of about an hour to one of JONATHAN’S most loved areas of the park, where we will stop and have our own thoughts about his kind, good humoured and generous life.
We will meet at midday at the carpark by the Trent Park Café, near the Cockfosters entrance to the park. (Post code: EN4 0JY). https://goo.gl/maps/GoZe6V4hvt18MpZKA/a>
If you are a runner then, on the same morning, Barnet and District Athletic Club will be completing their training session in JONATHAN’S memory. They will be meeting at 9:00 at the same location and training for around 90 minutes. Runners from all JONATHAN’S former running clubs and of all abilities are welcome.
There is no need, at this point, to let us know if you intend coming along. We appreciate that planning anything at the moment has its challenges, particularly two months in advance. We will email again, two weeks before the 31st July, with any further details and updates to the day.

STONEX STADIUM NOW OPEN – StoneX Stadium is now open to Club members, under strict conditions. Check with your Coach for details.
SBH SUBSCRIPTIONS 2020-2021 – SBH Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS has sent me the following regarding subscriptions.
The Club AGM took place virtually at 19.30 on Tuesday 24 November. One of the resolutions which was passed dealt with Club Subscriptions as follows. “The Annual Membership Fee for new members from 1 December 2020 will increase to £50. Existing members who have paid their membership fee for year ended 30 September 2020 will be considered as having also paid their fee for the year ended 30 September 2021.
In other words, in recognition of the disruption caused by Covid-19, these members will have 2 years membership for the price of one.” Therefore, I’m now asking athletes who have not paid their subscription for the year ended 30/09/20 (£45) to pay, so as to qualify for the 2 for 1 concession together with the England Athletics Registration Fee of £15 for 2020/21. The total is £60 and should be paid NOW to; ACCOUNT NAME: SHAFTESBURY BARNET HARRIERS, BANK: HSBC, ACCOUNT NUMBER: 41308378, SORT CODE: 400426 – Please let me know when payment is made. Thanks GEOFF

On seeking technical advice “MailChimp” was recommended as the best way for SBH to go forward.

Could I ask you not to select this as if you do you will be automatically removed from my distribution list.
