Ridlington Village – Results and Successes

There have been some successful outcomes from some of the events held in the village which we would like to share.

WILD GARDEN
Well done to all the volunteers who helped with Phase 1 of the wild garden on the north side of the church. We give especial thanks to Debra Thatcher and Jacky Morrell for their expertise and to everyone else for their wiling manpower.  Phase 2 will take place at the end of November, including the planting of yellow rattle. If you would like to become involved in this project, please contact Debra, Jacky or Anne Harvey.

SMALLS FOR ALL
Thank you to everyone who donated to this new and worthy cause and to Debra Thatcher for organising and hosting (especially the delicious cakes!) You donated over 88 ‘smalls’ in the event, which Debra will now forward to the Smalls for All Charity. This is going to be an annual event, to be held each OCTOBER – so please hang on to those ‘unwanted undies.’

VILLAGE HALL QUIZ
An enjoyable evening saw the misnamed ‘Clueless’ team from the village winning. Lovely food and £323 raised for the hall funds. Big thanks to those who helped in every way and to those who took part.

RUNNING CLUB:
Our Running Club is going from strength to strength and some completed the Rutland Water 10k Nightrun through the wind and wet with some impressive times! Martin Wall completed his first Parkrun last month and his amazing result was reported on their Facebook page. Our next ‘event’ is the Rutland Water 5k Parkrun event on New Year’s Day 2020. New members always welcomed 😊 – just come to the Playing Field on Saturday mornings at 9am.
