And congrats to Carley Bryan, Jayden Bryan and Jay Gardiner from Orini Combined School.  The three competed in the Thames valley champs 2018 at Patetonga.

Jayden Bryan walked away with 2nd place for the 50cc, Carley Bryan 5th place in the 50 cc mx and Jay Gardiner got 20th in a packed 65 cc class.

Things were also sporty at Huimai Playcentre – with Christmas just around the corner.  Here’s Santa and his helper burning around the cool bike track!



The excitement builds at Horsham Downs School as they get ready for the new slide.  Bags a go on it!

Finally, does anyone recognise this fellow?  He was picked up sitting on the side of SH1B in Gordonton. His finder went to considerable lengths to knock on doors in the area, but the owner wasn’t located. He is quite thin, so may have been lost a few days, but is otherwise in great condition.  Get in touch if you recognise him.
