The Netherfield Horse Ride takes place again this year on September 29 and 30.

We are looking for donations and sponsorships this year to help with the insurance which is approximately £200.00 for the weekend. Money raised this year will go towards a memorial circular seat around Simon Bishop’s tree on the village green by the bus stop. Thank you, Janette - Netherfield Post Office
