Cholsey Grange & Farm
A dozen or so riders taking part in a ride raising funds for Friends of O.S.C.A.R, a charity set up to support children with brain and spinal tumours and their families throughout the country.
The ride was organised by the Naphill Riding Club and started around our stubble fields.
Harvest Completed - New Owl Chicks
We completed 2019 harvest this week with the Triticale (a hybrid of Wheat and Rye) and grown because it is less palatable to the ever-present deer population. Our contractors - Kensham Farms, based in Cadmore End - have done a fabulous job of both improving the yield and the soil, which you may have noticed from the recent manure-spreading.
The Barn Owl Trust have been to visit
They have found two chicks in our Barn owl box (in the barn) which is great news as we had 3 chicks earlier this year in our other box.
Supporting Thames Valley Air Ambulance
Star of the show was of course Percy, our Connemara pony who was completely unfazed by his 'injured' rider, camera crew, drone, flashing lights etc.
If you're a cyclist, walker or rider, be prepared. Download the What3Words app (It's free) and learn how to use it. It's simple & it works (even without mobile data).
