75th Anniversary Dinner

A huge thank you to all who attended last weekends 75th Anniversary Dinner & Dance at Hogarth’s Hotel.

The evening was a huge success and combined with the raffle we raised sufficient funds to buy an additional set of plastic dressage letter towers, corner pods & boards to now be able to make 3 short fully enclosed plastic arenas in the outdoor school for competitions.

A big thank you also goes out to all those who donated raffle prizes – HSBC for the 6 bottles of wine sent to the club to celebrate our 75th year, Vikki Weaver, James McCullough, Pippa Starkey, Jane Richmond, Gail Bridgwater, Heather Lewis, Steve Scott, Earlswood Equine & Kerry Arnold-Herrick.
