It is with great sadness that on Saturday 9th March 2024 Mike Strange a very well respected & long serving level 3 Timekeeper passed away after a short illness. Mike moved from Buckinghamshire in 1968 and joined Bristol AC where he competed over 400m/400mH along with other events for his club.

In later years Mike became a team manager and also qualified as a coach. Mike was a Primary official for Avon and a Secondary official for Welsh Athletics making many trips with his wife Carol (Level 3 Track judge) across the border to help at our Championships/Schools/Cardiff Met and League meetings.

Mike will be greatly missed by all not just from the Time Keepers stand but by officials from all disciplines as he was a great character and a pleasure to be around.

Our condolences go out to Carol's daughter Fiona & son David along with their families.
