Congratulations to all the participants of last Sunday’s Gaddesden Gallop. Grey skies didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the participants on the 5 km and 10km runs through our lovely countryside.

And thank you to the 1st Little Gaddesden Scouts and to the Friends of Little Gaddesden School, the organisers of the event, for generously donating the entry fees of those who entered on the day to the Vestry@50 appeal. The appeal fund is £250 £550 better off thanks to their generosity and the efforts of the runners.
