The list of donations to charities and other deserving causes for 2018 & 2019 including Buckingham have now been added to the website. When the donations so far for 2019 have been added, the grand total donated since we started has now exceeded 47,800! Well done everyone.

MISCELLANEA

Here are links to video clips of the carters returning from the ring at Hollowell
on the Saturday
and on the
Sunday

An Important Note For Carters: If you wish to attend an event, particularly one which requires passes, please let the Co-ordinator of the event know in plenty of time, since, while we're all keen to maximise the turnout, it can be difficult to obtain extra passes at the last minute, and the size and location of the pitch allocated to us may well have been based on a smaller turnout, making it difficult to squeeze extra carters in at the last minute, quite apart from the difficulty of getting passes to people at the last minute.
Equally, if, having received passes, you find that you can't attend after all, PLEASE LET THE CO-ORDINATOR KNOW so that spaces are not being held unnecessarily on the pitch or camping area.
Here endeth the sermon!

Bandanas cost 5.50 each, of which 50p goes to a doggy charity nominated by Rosemary (who embroiders the bandanas)


The CARTING TRIBUTES page is still awaiting an update to include several of our carting friends, to whom we've all had to say goodbye over the last couple of years. We hope to be able to complete this before too long as soon as I can find the time.
