Village Barbecue with Music (“I Survived the Ride + Stride”)

We will be having a Village Barbecue with Music from 5pm on the 12th Sept. at the Village Hall. All are welcome especially participants in the Rutland Ride + Stride event.

We are planning it in the car park (weather permitting).  It is simply a get together for people to have a burger/sausage and a drink at the end of the summer to coincide with the Ride and Stride.  We will ask for a £5 donation for a burger and drink.
Any proceeds split between 2 village amenities (hall and church).

Ride + Stride

Rutland Ride+Stride (opens in a new window) is a sponsored event for cyclists, joggers, walkers and horse riders. The event is held in Rutland once every two years in order to raise money for the preservation of the county’s beautiful and ancient church buildings: some 64 of which will be open on Saturday 12th September 2015.

Participants challenge themselves to visit as many churches as they can by their chosen mode of transport and at the same time raise money to support the work of the Rutland Historic Churches Preservation Trust. Whilst many of our participants choose to walk or cycle we welcome anyone who is willing to take on a personal challenge. Horse riders are welcome and we’d love to see a unicyle or three-legged team!

Half of what participants raise in sponsorship will be re-allocated specifically to their nominated church (if any) and the other half to the funds of the Rutland Historic Churches Preservation Trust for general use on churches/chapels in the county of Rutland.
