Thank you to everyone who joined Richmond Motor Club for the recent clean-up day in Arkengarthdale following the devastating floods our local area suffered recently.
We had a successful day clearing stone at Rawcroft, Heggs and Storthwaite. The local landowners are always very generous in letting us use their land for trials so it was a pleasure to help them out in return and great to see so many people turning up to help. Thank you to the ladies for providing a good Yorkshire spread to keep the troops going.
One of the landowners sent us this lovely message below, which makes our work worth all the while. Please pass on my sincerest and heartfelt thanks to all members, friends and family who gave up their time yesterday to come and muck in at Rawcroft/Heggs/Storthwaite farms. The kindness of strangers never ceases to amaze me — I was overwhelmed when the convoy started to make its way down the track! — and in just one day, you’ve managed to restore a sense of order to the landscape. Thanks to days like yesterday, I have never felt alone in the aftermath of the flood, and that makes all the difference in being able to move forwards. Warmest wishes, Liz Sutcliffe Heggs Farm
