Redcliffe Little Athletics paid tribute to a remarkable number of record breakers at its annual Presentation Day earlier this month.
To be valid, records had to be set at one of the club’s competition nights on Langdon Park Oval, in Margate.
A number of the records had stood for more than 20 years – and two for more than 30 years.
