WITH the council still dragging its feet over how to honour Greg Rutherford, Marshall Milton Keynes Athletic Club will be hosting its own special evening with the man himself on Tuesday night – and you are invited.
Rutherford will visit the club’s Stantonbury Stadium home from 6pm, taking questions, pictures and signing autographs for as long as he’s wanted – which could make it a long night.
The athletics club hopes to raise enough funds to build an indoor training facility in the 25-year-old’s honour. Not only would the Greg Rutherford Arena celebrate his London 2012 success, but it would also significantly improve the city’s chances of producing another future Olympic champion.
Whether you’re a MMKAC member or just a sports fan, you are invited to get down to Stantonbury Stadium on Tuesday night and shake hands with the man who has really put Milton Keynes on the map for the right reasons.
