RIDE + STRIDE 2020: Thank You!

Albeit in a slightly different format, due to the present Covid restrictions placed on the cyclists and walkers, 12th September was still a great day to go out into the countryside and visit small and large Churches.  The precautions were numerous – and well adhered to by all.

A great big Thank You to all who took part this year – some churches had some very enterprising cyclists/walkers who made the effort to enjoy what was a very different RIDE + STRIDE year – even with all the restrictions imposed. Well Done!

The new, for this year only, competition (take a photo of a church on your way round) seems to have been well received – a number of photos have already been entered – again thank you for all the effort put in.

Of course with all the restrictions placed on people’s movements this year a number of Churches were unable to join in – let’s hope that next year we can all return to normality.

Remember you don’t have to be affiliated to a particular Church – cycling or striding everyone is welcomed.

We particularly hope that churches which have been in receipt of grants from the Trust will show their appreciation by taking part this year.

If you require further details on any of the above please contact Margaret on 07757 800919 or by email: info.nhct@gmail.com

 

Prize-winning churches of RIDE + STRIDE 2019

Your continued support of the Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust is paramount to its success. A big thank you to all concerned.

We all have had our share of cancellations due to the present pandemic.

The annual get together at Winkburn Hall, which I know many of you enjoyed, was cancelled – this is normally the time and place when the prizes are given out to the various churches whose efforts in obtaining sponsors was outstanding. For 2019 these are as follows:

St. John the Baptist, East Markham £ 1,613.00
St. Giles, Balderton £ 1,334.00
St. Giles, Edingley £ 1,055.00

(Christ Church Chilwell just missing out with £ 1,015)

The Riders points go to:

St. John’s Methodist Carlton 163 (Mike Woolley)
St. John’s, Colston Bassett 141 (Nick Perry)
All Saints, Coddington 136 (Tracy & Chris Hickman)
Methodist Church, West Bridgford 121 (John DeBoer)

The above prize monies will be forwarded in due course to each Church – thank you again for all your effort.

Unfortunately this year and the Ride & Stride has had to be drastically slimmed down – but all being well it will take place. Don’t forget the One Off photograph Competition for 2020 with prizes to be won.
