Gentle Bike Riding or Walking
On Saturday 12th September, there is the annual “Ride and Stride” taking part throughout Wiltshire. It is aimed at raising money for church repairs and the idea is that you find a few sponsors and trundle round the local villages on the minor roads, popping in to the odd church for a quick refreshment.
Half the money raised stays with the Hankerton Church and the other half goes to Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust (Anglican, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Methodist and URC) to maintain other churches needing vital repairs and maintenance.
If interested in cycling or striding or just supporting, please contact Philip Carter, Old School House, 01666 575465.
It seems like a million years since I rode round the local churches with my (then) young daughters Amy and Lucy who are now in their 30s………………. happy days…………….!
