The club held their annual awards evening last week

Trophies and rosettes were presented to members who had won the most points in each class during the year, and there were special trophies for everything from the youngest rider to the best all-round performance.

Club Chairman, Richard Harrison, said “Despite the weather we held three very successful shows this year in the lovely grounds of Stanford Hall. I’d like to thank all our members, judges and helpers for their support this year and look forward to seeing them all again next year.”

The dates for next year’s shows, all held at Stanford Hall on Sundays, are: 19 May, 16 June, 14 July and 1 September. Details and photos are on the club website www.skrc.co.uk and the club has an active Facebook group, which is open to everyone to join.
