Dear Member

Well we nearly made a whole season without having to cancel, but I suppose we were pushing it to expect to get all the show on this year, especially after the disastrous weather we had over the last two years.

The British Horse Society Merseyside Branch is holding a number of escorted rides around the old Cronton Colliery & Rainford Linear Park and Loop route, its £12 in advance or £15 on the day, the Rainford ride is limited to 30 people so if you want to go you need to book ASAP. For more information on the local events e-mail: or Tel: Margaret Fishwick 07587028485 or Keith Hacket on 07969497048. Everybody should make an effort to use these facilities as much as possible or they could be lost to the horsey fraternity for ever.

You will find enclosed a list of this year’s point’s winners. The trophies will be given out at the Presentation Dance, which will be held on Saturday 16th November at North End Recreation Club, Bushy Lane, Rainford Junction, WA11 7LN.

The Presentation will start at 8.00p.m. If you can’t attend the dance please make sure a representative picks up your trophy, as they will not be kept for you.

Tickets are £6.00 each, this will include a Disco & Hot Pot made by Karl’s Catering; you can get the tickets by either by filling in and returning the form enclosed with this letter, or by going on the website, the form will be on there, failing all that you can contact the following people, Linda Armstrong (Liverpool) 0151 486 5128, Mo Chamberlain (Rainford) 0174488 2255.

It would be really helpful if you could let me know how many tickets you require before the evening so I can let Karl know how much food we will need.

If you have any queries regarding the points or if I have spelt a name wrong, please ring me as soon as possible and I will try to sort them out.

Will all 2012 Points Trophy winners please make sure they have them engraved as soon as possible as I will be contacting them soon to arrange their return, you can return them to Mo in Rainford Tel: 01744882255 or Linda in Speke 01514865128.
