This needs to be checked prior to the Congleton ride • Lamberts Lane also needs clearing. Anndrea will check if it is still passable for horses. • Please can everyone try to pay for lessons in advance.

There are some ongoing activities to join this path to School Lane rather than the A34 which may need some support • The Dressage went well; the next one will probably be in January Treasurer’s report – Maggie Marincovic Deposit a/c 10673.34 Cash 10 Current a/c 8156.52 Total 18839.36 Membership 81 members, 67 renewed adults, 11 honorary, 3 juniors Social Report – Pat Guerin • Congleton Ride is 18 November and this is a joint BBA and Cheshire EGB event • Pat to investigate Xmas meal options, preference is The Vicarage, possibly 3 December • Thursday evening flatwork lessons sometimes have spaces so please contact Jan if you are interested AOB Race night in aid of Mid Cheshire RDA at Morley Green Club on 13 October.
