Volunteer of the Month

In recognition of all our wonderful helpers the Volunteer of the Month will receive a rosette, chocolates (or wine) to thank them for their support.

April’s winners are the Drummond family who have done a great deal of work and spent many hours at Castlefields preparing the site – cutting grass, replacing fence posts, clearing rubbish, sorting out show jumps and setting up courses.

Thank you.

S&DRC Trophies

The committee members agreed that all trophies, including Points League Trophies, presented in 2019 are to be retained by the winners until 2021.

Thank you to those who have already returned trophies – they are being stored until they can be competed for in 2021.

Don’t be a Dark Horse – be seen, be safe.
