Diary 2024

Important Kipling County Group changes:-
 
Due to difficulties faced by both our Monday and Thursday groups, the committee has decided that for the time being we will no longer drive on Mondays and that both groups will drive on alternate Thursdays until further notice. This will hopefully ensure that all drivers drive as much as possible in a safe environment with more helpers and ponies available. To even out the numbers of drivers each week, the groups will be as follows:-
 
Group A   See below for the provisional start dates and then fortnightly-
Noah Bryan
Ella Crouch
Timothy Brown
Graeme Chandler
Timothy Cook
Amelia Dubois Whittaker
Ashley Rich
Susie Turner
Amanda Waterfield
Zoe Wilson
Gary Hazell
 
Group B  See below for the provisional start dates and then fortnightly-
Alex Seitz
Nichola Hooper
Sarah Himpson
Josie Cyster
Gay Williams
Bridget Mutter (Biddie)
Duncan MacKinnon
Tracey Smith
Victoria Morgan
Caroline Taylor
Rory Bacon
Shannon Grice

Due to her circumstances, Linda Clark will join either group when she is able.

They also tell us that there are planning to fence off some problematic holes that previously necessitated what looked like a wonky arena.
