1066 Way to Battle Cross Country Race, Presentation Event

Following their successful running of the recent race as part of the 950th Anniversary celebrations, Battle and Villages Lions Club held a presentation evening for all the local people who had worked tirelessly over the months beforehand with the preparation and organisation of the event and on the day at the Benedict De Whistler Centre in Battle. Following refreshments, which included chocolate cakes and biscuits which seemed to be particularly enjoyed by some of the younger guests, Lion Rod Eldrige, the Club President, assisted by Lion Wendy Cattaway made a presentation of gifts of thanks, which included Certificates of Appreciation and Competitors Horse Brasses to individuals and club representatives including Hailsham Old Pavilion Society, 14th St Leonards Guides, The Children’s Charity, Northiam Bonfire Society, 1066 Show Marshalls, Seddlescombe Pre School, Graham Baldwin, Simon Merrick, Lynne Ireland, and particularly Eric Hardwick for his specialist expertise and Wendy Cattaway, the Clubs lead Lion for the event. The Club made some £22,788 from the event for their charitable causes and have had many requests from race participants, who described the race route as one of the prettiest they had entered to run the event again.
