Janette’s vital role at Olympics

A MEMBER and volunteer at a Wombwell sports association will play her own part in the Olympics, ensuring that events run smoothly over the summer.

Janette Tomlins from Wombwell Sporting Athletics Club is honoured to have been chosen to represent the area as a field official alongside Julie Herberts from Barnsley Athletics club, and Malcolm Fletcher, also from Barnsley AC, who will be equipment officer at the Olympics.

A spokesman for the Wombwell club said: “WWE are all thrilled that Janette, Julie and Malcolm have been given this wonderful opportunity.

“Janette works tirelessly for Wombwell SAC and puts endless hours into coaching, organising and supporting our athletes. We feel she really deserves this wonderful opportunity.”

All three members were invited down to London for preparatory sessions.
