Danni Thomas from CHN Branch had a nasty fall yesterday and was taken to Alderhay by Air Ambulance. I know that everyone was very worried but the latest news is that she is on a ventilator, is stable but sedated. She has severely bruised her lungs but her ribs are intact. She has no other obvious injuries.
I am told that the situation was handled brilliantly by the organisers.
We wish her a speedy recovery.

On Saturday Nov 2nd at their Halloween Show Jumping, Lynn Page attended her last Dwyfor activity as DC. She was presented with a photograph album full of photographs that have been taken over the years.
Lynn has been an active volunteer for the Pony Club for 39 years, most of the latter half being DC of Dwyfor Branch loosely based in the Lleyn Peninsular. She has been awarded the Cubitt and 30 year Bar for her services. Lynn has kept this small Branch active through thick and thin, in an area where members are few and scattered widely. There are no XC courses, only one indoor school and members have to travel quite large distances to attend rallies as a flat available field is difficult to find ! More remarkable is that Lynn does not drive, but she has managed to be at activities somehow – even with a broken leg 2 years ago. Her successor is Francess Taylor, a young lady who has come through Pony Club herself. Frankie has had a good tutor as she has been working alongside Lynn over the last year. We wish her every success in her new role.
On behalf of the Pony Club and Dwyfor Branch – Thank You Lynn for all your hard work and devoting the last 39 years to your members. Happy Retirement.
