TROLLOPE REPEATS FRADLEY 10K TRIUMPH
Lichfield athlete and Lichfield Running Club member James Trollope repeated his 2011 win at today’s Florette Fradley 10k (picture top left). A near 1,000 strong field braved the cold but dry conditions and Trollope immediately headed the pack from the gun and swooped home in an excellent time of 32:20, slower than his 2011 time of 30:50, followed home by Matthew Missen in 33:11 with Aaron Brown (Cannock and Stafford AC) 3rd home in 33:14.
First female home was Kim Fawke-Williams of Centurion RC (pictured top right) in a fast time of 35:53 which saw her finish a commendable 12th overall, 2nd female was Joanna Simpson (Team Florette) in 36:38 and 3rd was Linda Howell (Bournville Harriers) in 39:14
A feature for the event this year was a contingent of over 20 runners from sponsors Florette and their Team Florette (pictured below centre) with Chadi Amoun finishing overall 11th and Joanna Simpson finishing 2nd female home; showing real commitment from a sponsor’s team.
Kevin Wilson of organisers KP Events was delighted with the outcome on the day: “There was a fantastic turnout today, a really big number of runners on a cold day and friendly atmosphere being created, well done to everyone involved and massive congratulations to Team Florette!”

Violets in Bloom is a local charity born out of a family’s tragic loss. Violet Mornington was a bubbly beautiful little 5 year old girl who had just finished her first year at St Stephen’s School in Fradley – but she lost her life to a rare blood disorder in 2013. Her loss has left a huge hole in her parent’s lives, but they turned their grief into something positive to help all parents who have lost their own little angels.
Since Violet passed away, friends, family and the local community have rallied together to raise both funds and awareness of HLH (Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis) the condition that took her life, and have raised over £20,000 for the Histio Research Trust and Birmingham Childrens’ Hospital.
Violets in Bloom has begun raising funds to build a unique, magical memorial garden for children within the grounds of Lichfield and District Crematorium in Fradley to provide the opportunity for parents to place a memorial, seek solace and connect with their child.
Violets in Bloom is a registered charity, number 115816. Read More.
