Many thanks for the contributions and generosity of everyone who contributed to this year’s RIDE & STRIDE day in September. Lympstone Parish raised a total of £522 which is almost double the amount raised last year! Fifty per cent of that total (£261) comes straight back to Lympstone Church for its ongoing maintenance.

Therefore heartiest congratulations and a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who participated – these included ‘Riders and Striders’, the Welcoming Party, and to the many who so generously donated money.

Make a diary note now to join in next year’s event which will be on Saturday 8th September 2012 – and join in a lovely day out!
