PAS Nutrition – Pro Athlete Supplementation

pas-logo
Pro Athlete Supplementation was formed as a result of a successful winning partnership between Jon Williams, BSc, Registered Nutritionist and Darren Campbell, MBE, Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist. Jon was responsible for Darren’s nutrition during the last 10 years of his career where he amassed his gold and silver medals. At the time when Darren was close to retirement Jon suggested that they form a company to develop the most effective sports nutrition products for professional athletes, football and rugby players. Hence PAS was formed.
Providing athletes with products to enhance their recovery and performance was our starting point, however athlete safety is always priority. PAS is fully committed to the Informed Sport Testing Protocol and we batch screen every product we produce.

Friends of Whitcliffe Common

friends-of-whitcliffe
Whitcliffe Common is a delightful area of countryside available to all and on the doorstep of one of the loveliest market towns in England. The present Common is all that remains of a much larger medieval common used in the 13th C. to graze livestock, gather hay and quarry stone for the construction of buildings such as Ludlow Castle. On the Common and visible, are the long trenches thought to have been dug by the Parliamentarians for the siege of Ludlow Castle during the Civil War in 1646. Whitcliffe is also of international geological importance for exposures of Silurian strata. The work of Murchison in the 19thC gave the name ‘Whitcliffian” to the Ludlow Bone Beds. In 1821 the tradition began of caring for the area by local residents and this is continued today by the Trustees for The Friends of Whitcliffe Common. The organisers of Storm The Castle are very grateful for the help and support of The Friends of Whitcliffe Common.
