Cowdray Sponsored Ride

The Cowdray Sponsored Ride took place, not unexpectedly, in Cowdray Country, starting and finishing at Benbow Ponds. We were ridiculously fortunate with the weather. The sun shone all day and, we’re told, there was a record number of entries beforehand and on the day. So well done everyone for turning out and up and taking part. Huge thanks from Macmillan and the CL&C to chief organisers Joan Langmead and Philip Prior. The former’s stewards did a sterling job and there were no calamities of any magnitude. The latter, in charge of the contingent from the Scouts, made the day happen and, as always, we owe him a huge debt of gratitude. Of course, it really couldn’t happen without support from Lord Cowdray and his team at the Estate Office too, for which huge thanks.
