Charlton Park Fun Ride This Sunday

The Charlton Park Charity Funride will be coming through Hankerton this Sunday (June 26th).

horses

The event has both short and long routes and the long route brings the horses along the bridlepath to Bullocks Horn, down to Cloatley Road, into the village, and then out down the small lane past the Old Post Office.

The route will be signposted with orange sings and orange ribbons and I would have thought that horses would start to appear in the village from around 10:45.

The event is organised by the North Wiltshire Saddle Club which is a friendly local club that organises various events for local riders throughout the year. The funride is a charity event supporting Charlton Church, Riding for the Disabled, and The Air Ambulance.

So give them a wave as they pass !

 

Strawberry Tea

I was thinking it’s a shame to lose our  village traditions.
I appreciate that the Ladies who have previously run the tea have been doing it for 20 years !  Wow how amazing !

So I’m asking for volunteers to help me to prepare the teas on the morning of 17th July and to help serve teas, and help clear up.

It’s a tall ask I know but please could you help?

Also please could you donate a cake?

Many thanks
