Annual Prize Giving 2018

Prize giving as usual followed our AGM in February of this year.

Rosettes and gifts were given to twelve of our members who have given more than sixteen hours of their time to help us run competitions. We are so grateful to them for their help as without them competitors could not compete.

The amazing twelve are:
Jane Walker and Lynda Haigh who have helped at all of our show jumping competitions.
Dee Sides and Jessica Jones who helped us with our show jumping and also worked for many hours pole picking at Area SJ last year
Lauren Lawley, Siân and Sophie Williams who helped their mothers run our Show Jumping at Radford’s last year
Karen Lawley and Babs Williams who very successfully ran our SJ last year
Izzy Roberts who has helped run our Dressage competitions
Alison Ollier our treasurer who has put many hours into looking after our accounts
Sally Evans who is our Helper of the Year. Sally is always ready to help out whenever there is need, she has helped in the organisation and been in charge of camp, helped with our dressage competitions and show jumping competitions and has put in at least 25 hours for us. She is a great asset to Riding Club

VVRC AGM and Prize Giving

Our AGM and prize giving was held at The Bradford Arms in Llanymynech in February this year.
It was lovely to see so many of our members there supporting our club and we have many ideas and suggestions for this summer’s programme.
We also welcomed onto the committee Izzy Roberts as club secretary, Alison Ollier as Treasurer and Jane Yorke, who will be assisting with style and performance.
Karen Lawley and Babs Williams have become official helpers and will be running the showjumping from now on.

Annual AGM and Prize Gving

The evening started with members raising their glasses to members of committee and official helpers who have done a huge amount of work with organising clinics and competitions and training for our members.

Special rosettes were awarded to members who have been extremely helpful during the year and have helped over and above their role in Riding Club., they all have given up so much of their time to run activities for others to enjoy and we really appreciate what they do.

Cassie Woods who organised six very successful show jumping competitions at Radford’s and ended the season with a hugely popular open team show jumping competition.
