The Tarrant Valley 10

166 runners lined up in Tarrant Monkton for the start of the TV10 on Sunday 17th July, a warm and very humid day. The race was won by Iain Trickett of the Dorset Doddlers in 35 mins and 47 secs and the first woman (in fact, women!) were Beckie Lord of Stubbington Green Runners and Kalie Demerjian from the United States who, in true TV10 spirit, crossed the finish line together in 40 mins and 40 secs.
The 1 mile children’s race was won by Leo Riggs (Aged 9) and the first girl was Amelia Stewart (Aged 8). Well done indeed to all of the 26 children who took part.
Runners and supporters all took full advantage of our superb local produce and refreshment stalls and have ensured that this year’s good causes, All Saints’ Church, Tarrant Monkton and the Meningitis Research Foundation, will receive generous donations.
First time Race Director, Andy Eastaugh, would like to thank his superb team of volunteers from Tarrants Monkton and Launceston, and beyond, whose sterling efforts helped make this year’s event such a resounding success.
Next year’s TV10 is pencilled in for 16 July 2017 and is our 30th Anniversary event. Watch for details.

Queen’s 90th

Lovely village occasion yesterday to celebrate the Queen’s birthday.
Thank you Village Hall Committee et al for orchestrating such a happy and successful day. And weren’t we lucky with the weather?

We raised the grand total of £575 on the 12 June. This is an amazing sum and my thanks go to all villagers who supported this event.

A very good start to fund raising for our Village Hall Project.
