Liane's Challenge Update

Only 3 months to go and still a lot of training to go. 

Since November I have regularly been out on my bike on Saturday mornings with my coach Duncan who knows when my pace slackens and when to encourage me up those steep hills and with my training and challenge partner Kirsty.

I have found some beautiful scenic routes taking in breathtaking views stretching across to Wales and seen many different types of wildlife that I certainly would have missed in the car. In May I had the chance to meet more of the ladies doing the same challenge on a training weekend. We cycled 49 miles which I found easier than expected, so I feel my training schedule is on track.

So if you would like to help me achieve my challenge you can sponsor me by going to my JustGiving link.

Old ITV programme about the Charfield Railway Crash 1928

Locals sharing memories at the Railway Tavern Pub in Charfield. People interviewed: Mrs Hazel, then "Jibby' Jones, then Reginald Pagett.

Thanks to Graham Tyndall for sharing this with us.

"It was broadcast on ITV many years ago and they kindly sent me a video of the program.
My father is in the video talking about the lady in black and the children's shoes. He worked on the railway in 
Charfield as a Ganger and we lived in a cottage just below the Plough Inn.
When the cottages were demolished we moved to Charfield Green on the corner right next to the railway line."

More information about the disaster.

Touch Rugby - keep fit on the Charfield Playing Fields!

Touch Rugby is a fantastic sport for keeping fit and allows men & women of all abilities to take to the field together.

You don't have to have had any rugby experience at all to play. It's also great fun!

We play on a Monday night from 6:30pm until 7:30pm, at the Charfield Playing Fields behind the Village Hall.

Please text 07970853871 if you're interested and we'll put you on the list for session updates.

Buy a cool T-shirt and raise funds to fight cancer!

Liane Cope is raising money to help 3 cancer charities: Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust.

The design 'cats' was drawn by my talented daughter whilst I was going through cancer treatment and it cheered me up enormously. Now here's my chance to share it with you. She has kindly drawn a 'dogs' design recently for those of you that love dogs.

A local printing company are kindly printing the T-shirts at cost, so for every one sold £9 will go straight to the charities."
