The Second Great Newent Balloon Race
Entries are now closed for balloon returns. The furthest ticket was sent from La Foye-Monjault in the Poitou-Charente area of France (inland from La Rochelle). This is roughly 550-600 miles from Newent. The winner, receiving £50, is Geofrrey Urch. Other prize winners for most tickets sold were Lynn Ashton and Glebe Infants. The event together with some generous donations should raise in the region of £1600 for the Newent Youth Service and ChillOut. Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make this another fund raising success.
