Wonderful Open Farm Day read all about it…
The weather was wonderful as was the whole event, attended by many local people from Rathmell Village; also visitors from further afield, due in part to some excellent publicity preceding the event.
The Tour de Rathmell & Wigglesworth raised the grand total of £443.00, half of which will be donated to the Clapham Cave Rescue Organisation; the other half being donated to the Rathmell Reading Room.
‘Malcolm and Jonathan completed six laps in all – 42 miles, not bad for such a warm though beautiful day – weren’t we lucky! The final sixth lap was completed after an extended pit stop in an old barn situated some where between Wigglesworth and Long Gill; the heavy downpour and thunderstorm accounting for this! Both arrived safely back just before 5.30pm.”Entertainment was be provided by Craven Flagcrackers , who performed their traditional Morris dancing, and live music was provided by folk singer Phil Friend and multi-instrumentalist Ciara Parkinson-Jones.
