We got told off one year for giggling when the dinner was held at the Hatherley Manor. It was the speaker’s fault for not being funny!! :D

Is this the same Simon that fell and broke his ankle leaving Cheltenham Racecourse a few years ago ?

THE BIG ONE
On Monday 26th October 2020, I will be walking a marathon distance (just over 26 miles) with a close friend and fellow Gloucester Rugby supporter. We start at 6am.......

We will leave our beloved Kingsholm and walk through the great city of Gloucester and down the Gloucester/Sharpness Canal to the Slimbridge Wetland Centre, at which point we will turn round and walk back to Kingsholm (probably via The Bell at Frampton on Severn - seems rude not to!).

My fellow athlete (!) is Simon McGill, who also walked with me last year on our long walk. Simon is President of the Insurance Institute of Cheltenham & Gloucester again this year - a top bloke in so many ways.

Remember the cause we are supporting is “My name’5 Doddie” a charity set-up by the great Doddie Weir to raise funds to find a cure for Motor Neuron Disease from which he suffers.

If you can support me, I would be very grateful

Even better go to the "3 Horeshoes" in Frampton - far better than the Bell and just off splatt bridge !!

Thanks for the pub advice. There is an historical reason for choosing the Bell. Besides, by that stage, we most likely won’t care about the quality of the pub, food or drink.
