Lancashire riding club seeks old members for golden anniversary

  • A Lancashire riding club is looking for past members to help celebrate its golden anniversary.

    The Leigh and District Horse and Pony Club, started in 1958, plans to compile a yearbook of old tales and photographs to go on sale in June at their special anniversary show.

    Past and present members are being urged to contribute to the book.

    Club treasurer Sally Whitter said: “It would be great to hear from our old members on this exciting anniversary.

    “It is fantastic that the club has made it to its 50th birthday, and we want to make sure that the celebration is a very special occasion.”

    Club president Norman Gleave is a founder member.

    “I’ve been on every committee ever since and judged at nearly every show. I get so much enjoyment out of watching my children and their children compete in this Pony Club,” he said.

    In fact, the club is going from strength to strength with recent successes at the UK showing supreme riding club championships at Myerscough and the North-West Championships at Accrington.

    If you have a story to tell or a photograph to show, contact Sally Whitter. Tel: 07817648424. Email info@leighponyclub.co.uk.
