Presentation evening and charity night 2018

On the 22nd September, Chester Horse Driving Trails Ltd held their annual end of season presentation evening at the Crooked Horn near Holywell. This was to be a change from the norm, as over many years they have held the awards at the last outdoor event of the season. However, the committee acting on feedback from members decided to hold at an indoor venue and out of season. This turned out to be a very successful evening with nearly one hundred attendees, made up of members, friends and families. The fact that the owner of the Crooked Horn allowed wagons to stay overnight was also a welcome bonus (not that having a wonderful warm room with its own bar swayed anyone’s decision)!

An excellent buffet was served prior to the presentations taking place which then lead onto an evening of dancing and celebrations.

The awards covered three aspects of CHDTL, the winter indoor season, the one day Dressage and Cones (small pony) and of course the traditional two day Trials Driving. The awards were all done to music and slides, along with the occasional humorous “caption” photo’s.

CHDTL has always supported different charities and this year the nominated one was to be MacMillan Cancer Support, a charity close to many members and the club for personal reasons. Funds were raised via donations for the buffet, a tombola on the night and a kind donation from the venue and the DJ on the night. This resulted in raising a total of £936.80 which was then added to by a company that one of our members works for, resulting in a total donation of £1936.80.

The cheque was handed over to Eleri from MacMillan last week on a very cold and windy day at the Crooked Horn.

CHDTL would like to thank everyone that attended and supported this event and next year’s promises to be bigger and better.
