Ride and Stride 8th September 2018

Ride and Stride is fast approaching; and not long ago, St Mary’s received a grant of £10,000 from the Sussex Historic Churches Trust (SHCT), so it would be great to have a big turnout for this fun event…

There are lots of options, including: participating as a (sponsored) walker or rider; manning the church; or simply sponsoring one of our riders/walkers or those manning the church.  Please do sign up on the sheets at the back of church and pick up the information leaflets there.  It’s a great cause, with any funds raised split equally between St Mary’s and the SHCT.

Riding or striding. This year, you can: join Simon for either a short tour of the participating churches in Horsham, or for the more active, a wider ranging route taking in Rusper, Slinfold, Itchingfield, Nuthurst, Partridge Green, Shipley, Coolhurst and Billingshurst; or make up your own route…

Sponsorship.  As usual, Simon will be riding, and his sponsorship form is also at the back of the church.  Others may also be riding/striding, so please look out for their forms too.

Manning St Mary’s. Volunteers are needed please to man the church on the day of the Ride and Stride event.  There’s a rota at the back of the church, split into one hour slots.  Please try to find an hour to support this valuable endeavour and sign up with your name and a contact number on the sheet.  The requirements are very straightforward – just logging riders/striders in and offering refreshments.

For more information please contact Simon Briggs via the church office.
