Annual General Meeting
MORPETH RDA GROUP
NOTICE is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Morpeth RDA Group will be held on Thursday 22nd February 2024 at 11am in the Equine Classroom at Kirkley Hall.
National Virtual Championships
We are extremely pleased to announce that Elizabeth Cockburn & Marc Dawson who competed in the RDA 2023 National Virtual Championships gained 2nd & 4th placings respectively in Class 35 led dressage walk only – senior section. We are so proud of you both.
Co-op Local Community Fund
On Saturday 18th November Morpeth RDA were invited along to the Co-op “Join in Live” event at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne to represent the Co-op’s local cause groups. Georgie Simmons, one of our trustees, gave a short talk on what Morpeth RDA does and our experience of being a Co-op cause.
During the last twelve months a total of £3,514.75 was raised for Morpeth RDA via the Co-op community fund. We were also given the opportunity to promote ourselves in store. Not only that but we also gained two new wonderful volunteers from the Co-op staff.
Whilst our involvement in the community fund has ended for the time being we hope to benefit again in the future – if you are a Co-op member don’t forget to access your account and choose a new local cause to support.
Once again it is a huge thank you to the Co-op and their members.
New Rugs For Our Ponies
With the increasingly wet weather we have found it almost impossible to get our ponies rugs dry and so despite already having a large selection we have felt it necessary to invest in some more. Luckily Harry Hall had a good saving on the rugs so we were able to kit all the ponies out to match. The ponies looked super smart at first try on but we are sure the rugs probably aren’t quite so pristine now.
Roll on next Summer!
