Caspian Horse Society Strawberry and Wine Party

Pat Bowles will be holding her annual Strawberry and Wine Party in aid of the Caspian Horse Society on Thursday 6 July (1995) at 7.00pm at Pawnbrokers in Castle Bytham and some of the Caspians will be attending!

Pat reports that one of last years foals has gone to Texas and the American who has him considers that next year he should be a potential champion.  The other colt did not travel so far – he went to Spalding and is making many fans.  The filly known as ‘Dotty Doris’ will be at the party.  She was born on the day of last years ‘do’.

Tickets are £5 from Pat who can be contacted on 410908.  There will be a raffle and a Caspian merchandise stall.  As Pat says “We badly need funds to continue to support this fascinating and very ancient breed which i still on the endangered list”.

Midsummer Fair Refreshments

From Tricia Robins …

I have volunteered to organise the refreshments to be served in the Village Hall for the Midsummer Fair.  This is to ask you for donations in the form f cakes, scones, quiches etc.  (Ingredients can also be provided)  I am also looking for those with a little time to spare on the day to help serve the refreshments.

Please ring me on 410092 or call at 42 Bytham Heights.  Messages left at the shop will, hopefully, also fnd me.
