Quiz is on Saturday. We need a rough idea on how many will attend for food. If you have not done so please can everyone email or phone Chris/Jo with a rough idea of who they know may be attending – firstname.lastname@example.org, 01299270514 .
Also can the people who said they will do a quiz round confirm they are still OK for this (see minutes from AGM).

We had a stand at Farlow School Fete on Saturday (10th Sept) to promote the work we are doing in the area. We had lots of interest and some new members sign up. We also used this as an opportunity to promote our fund raiser Quiz to be held on Friday 21st October. Please note this date in your diaries.
Our fun competition to guess the number of miles of public rights of way in Farlow Parish was a great success. We had over 50 entries, thanks to all who had a go. The target was 15.2 miles and the winner on 15 miles was Arthur Ratcliff, a very close second was Ray Bentley on 15.5.
Many thanks to Bakers Of Tower Street, a top quality independent Cafe in Ludlow, for providing a generous voucher as a prize. www.bakersoftowerstreet.co.uk .
Thanks to Clare, Yvonne, Chris, Jo for setting up and running the stand and to Paula for organising the prize.
Finally we are hoping for a visit by Tim Simmons, council Byways Officer, either 14th or 15th September to look at our priority projects and hopefully provide some help to get these sorted.
Our fund raising table top sale held on 17th Nov was a great success. We had 20 tables and lots of bargains were to be had (I came away with 2 stable rugs, a pair of gloves, a dressage numnah, a lead rope and a head collar at a fraction of the new price).
Many thanks to everyone who had tables, provided cakes, provided raffle prizes and all the volunteer helpers on the night setting up the hall, running the raffle,setting up our display, manning the entrance and serving the teas and cakes.
We raised over £300 which will ALL go directly on materials and equipment hire to help us maintain the bridleways.
Couple of pictures below plus a reminder of what our small group has achieved.
We are planning a meeting and late Christmas get together with a meal at the Fighting Cocks in Stottesdon on Wednesday 9th Jan at 7:00pm. Let Chris or Yvonne know ASAP if you would like to come along.
A great night was had by all at our fund-raising Quiz and Curry Night. We had 13 teams and managed to raise over £400. This money will allow us to take on some urgent drainage improvement jobs over the next few months (all the money raised goes directly on materials and equipment hire).
Many thanks to all involved and to everyone who bought tickets and raffle tickets. Your support is much appreciated.
A special thanks to our sponsors (County Treks and Clare), to Jo for the catering and making the very yummy curries and to all who helped with question rounds and running the evening (including Pete, Clare, Chris, Jo, Yvonne, Olwen, John).
