Marshalling the Police XCountry

On Wednesday 20th October, 14 volunteers from the valley offered their services as marshals for the South West Police and Forces Cross Country Championship held at Beer Head. What  glorious  weather we were treated to! The event was organised by Gary Phillips and Garry Perratt with help from Chris Irving of Axe Valley Runners. The result of this effort was that we received a cheque for £350 for the New Hall funds. A huge thank you to all who helped with this event.

Umborne & Shute Calendar 2012

We hope to produce an Umborne & Shute Calendar for 2012. So please make a note of any local  photos you already have or any you take over the next 10 months in the valley.

We will consider photos that show views or buildings from the area but also

photos of wildlife etc. taken in and around the area (please tell us
details of where, when photo taken etc).
The 2010 calendar was a bit limited on space for writing in the boxes – we
will use a different format …
