Race Cancelled

image001I am sorry to inform every one that we have cancelled the Adults’ Race around the Village due to be held on Saturday at 2.00 pm.  Application forms were due in by last Friday and to date we have received just two entries.  The 1977 event proved popular but not so in 2016.

There is however still lots going on at the weekend at we look forward to seeing you there for all, if not part of the festivities.

Best wishes     Jenny
