AGM and Prize Giving

Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM and Prize Giving last night.

Some interesting discussions about the club and what we want to do in the future, election of the new committee and lots of fun prize giving and, most importantly, chips! What more could a person ask for?

Well done to all of you who got a rosette (aren’t they gorgeous?), and a special thanks to Maureen Coxon for making the prize giving and photos much more fun! Took me a while to work out the best setting on the camera but there are some that really made me laugh!

look out for the minutes if you weren’t able to attend

RAF Shawbury’s Be Seen, Be Safer Horse Rider Awareness Campaign

RAF Shawbury launched its Be Seen, Be Safer horse rider awareness campaign, in association with The BHS, in April 2015. So far, the base has distributed a huge amount of free high visibility clothing to riders throughout Shropshire and the borders of adjacent counties, all of which lie within Low Flying Area 9, which is a Dedicated Helicopter Training Area. I have attached a leaflet for your information.

The aim of the campaign is to promote the wearing of high visibility clothing by riders in order that they are more visible and can be seen earlier by the helicopter aircrew. In addition, the campaign trains helicopter aircrew, based at RAF Shawbury, to spot riders early and the take action to minimise disturbance.
