PILTON SHOW – help desperately required

For the Flower Show on Saturday 2nd September, a computer literate helper is urgently needed to do data entry into the Access database of all the entries, points won and table of prizewinners, all–important to the allocation of trophies and prizes.

Computer will be supplied and all templates and reports will  be set up in advance, but it will require being in the marquee all morning and until the results are read out at 16:00.   One other person (who does not need to be computer literate) is also needed to read out all the entry forms, to speed up the process. Please contact Simon Dallyn on webmaster@piltonflowershow.org.uk for details

THE GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL FUN RIDE

3 miles and 10-12 miles
Sunday 24th September 2017 for horse riders and cyclists in aid of the Mendip Bridleways and Byways Association

Mendip Bridleways and Byways Association has been granted unprecedented access to the 16 miles of tracks and farmland on the Glastonbury Festival site, courtesy of Mr. Michael Eavis and local landowners

This will be a unique opportunity for horse riders and cyclists to ride through the famous Festival ground passing the site of the Pyramid Stage, the Healing Ground, Dragon field and Standing Stones before riding up the steep escarpment to the summit of Stickleball Hill. With stunning views across the Somerset Levels, the ride will continue through the picturesque villages of East Pennard and Pylle using local bridle paths, droves, fern-filled woods, orchards, farm land and quiet lanes before returning to the Festival site. There will be cross country as well as coloured jumps of varying heights en route, as well as a photographer and refreshments available on the Festival site.

This promises to be a fabulous ride and one not to be missed! Money raised by the event will go towards the cost of improving the condition of other bridle paths throughout Mendip.

MBBA is the largest bridleway association in the South West of England with over 500 members and the fourth largest in the country. Run entirely by volunteers the aim of the Association is to protect and preserve the character and status of Mendip’s green ways for the safe use and enjoyment of horse riders, carriage drivers and cyclists. MBBA advertise the existence of tracks, droves and other ridden paths and seek to develop them into linking and circular safe off-road routes. The association promotes horse-riding as a safe and healthy leisure activity for all ages and backgrounds.

For further details or if you would like to take part in the Glastonbury Festival site ride please visit the MBBA website www.mbba.org.uk or telephone Mrs. V. Jones 01749 831 276.
