Whitchurch Bridge (Access to Woodcote Rally 2014)
Please note that the Whitchurch Bridge between Pangbourne on the south side of the Thames and Whitchurch-on -Thames on the north side of the Thames will remain closed for refurbishment until September 2014 (see the statement on the Whitchurch bridge website issued today for further details http://www.whitchurchbridge.com/WBCStatement13Mar2014Web.pdf
As a result of this if you are intending to attend this year's Woodcote Rally over the weekend of 12-13 July 2014 as a visitor or exhibitor and normally make your way to Woodcote via the Whitchurch Bridge in Pangbourne then you will need to take an alternative route.
The only alternative routes from the south of the Thames are via Goring-on-Thames in the West or Reading in the East.
The severe wet weather and flooding over the last three months has meant that no bridge refurbishment work has been possible by Whitchurch Bridge Company and its contractors. See their site above for details.

Hearing Dogs for the Deaf
Following our donation of 400 pounds to Hearing Dogs for the Deaf we are now the proud sponsors of Pepe, a puppy currently undergoing training.
Date of birth: 29 May 2013
Breed: Cocker spaniel
Currently living with: Socialising volunteer, Tracey.
Pepe is a very special puppy. He is one of seven pups that had to be hand reared from birth with the support of their volunteer foster mum and a supervisor from the breeding scheme. Fortunately, all of the pups survived and little Pepe is a healthy, happy chap.
He is living with volunteer socialiser, Tracey, in Buckinghamshire and is the fourth dog she has looked after. Tracey describes Pepe as "a joy to look after and absolutely gorgeous" and says "he adores cuddles". He also loves helping out with the gardening, which usually involves nibbling the plants – his favourite being fuschias! When he's not exploring in the garden, Pepe enjoys playing with his four ragga toys, and he has a habit of rounding up his toys up and putting them in his bed.
During a recent kitchen refurbishment, Pepe found a new place to sleep in one of the cupboards that was waiting for a new door. Tracey found him snuggled up in there, but he was more than happy to come out for a cuddle and go back to his bed.
Pepe has now been on a trip to the park, and he walked on a lead down a little lane to get there. He absolutely loves running around off his lead and meeting lots of other 'big' dogs and Tracey says that he wags his tail like mad when they go out.
Training Progress: Pepe will attend puppy classes at our training centre in Saunderton, with puppy trainer Kelly.
At home, Pepe has already picked up some basic commands such as 'sit' with lots of encouragement from Tracey. He will do anything for a treat so this will no doubt come in handy with his training.
