Almost thwarted by the weather but we pushed on regardless while other events all around were cancelling. We were rewarded with only occasinal slight rain and greatly reduced wind speed in the evening. The bonfire and fireworks went ahead as planned. All those who braved the conditions enjoyed the gianormous bonfire and fantastic firework display. What's wrong with a bit of mud anyway? Thank you all very much for coming and thank you again for your generous contributions in the collecting buckets. Over £1000 was raised.
Didn't go? This is what you missed: 9½ minutes of fireworks viewed from the fire site. Thank you Nick for the video.
And another big thank you to all our sponsors and helpers without which, this event would not have been possible. See below for a bit of publicity from some of them. More in the programme.
There might be a few left at the New Inn. Get your souvenir copy before they all sell out!
I think everyone who attended the Race Night will agree that a great time was had, the food was fantastic and the races were exciting with with much cheering and groans, depending on the progress of your horse!
Many thanks to all who sponsored races, bought horses and gambled away all their hard-earned cash. We raised about £2,400 for the Playing Field funds.
The Mower Fund will benefit.
The Shepherds Rest and Mini Bah
