Mrs Bowes’ visit to 10 Downing Street

Mrs Bowes was recently invited to a special event at 10 Downing Street to celebrate 20 years of parkrun.

The event was hosted by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Lucy Frazer MP, Secretary of State for Culture Media & Sport. As part of the event, Mrs Bowes took part in a mini ‘parkrun’ that started in the Downing Street Garden, went up and down Downing Street twice, before running through the famous front door, and up the stairs where Mr Sunak shook her hand. Mrs Bowes was really excited that Larry the Downing Street cat came out to say hello whilst she was there!

Mrs Bowes has been involved with parkrun since 2013; she was part of the team that set up Shrewsbury parkrun and is still a Core Team member. As well as volunteering at Shrewsbury, Mrs Bowes is a parkrun Volunteer Regional Ambassador for the West Midlands area. As part of this role, she has guided the setting up of several parkruns and junior parkruns across the region. She has also been involved in setting up 2 custodial parkruns. When she is not volunteering on a Saturday and Sunday am, Mrs Bowes enjoys running the events.
