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.
This fundraising event – offering 10k and 5k race options to participants – is taking place again on Sunday 5th May 2019. The races will start at 10.30am from the sports field and follow a loop through our lovely countryside via the Golden Valley in Ashridge and Hudnall.
On-line registration is at www.entrycentral.com.
The race is now being organised by the Friends of Little Gaddesden School. Pre-entry fees will go towards the school, and the entry fees on the day will go towards the Church Vestry Fund.
The race organizers are looking for marshals to direct the runners around the route and if you are able to contribute in this way please contact Catriona Angel via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 07980 310502.
