Supporting Cass and Friends

Cass & Friends helps young, local and talented athletes with real aspirations of National, International and, who knows, Olympic success. We have no limitations on particular sports.
logosquareAlthough entry into sport through schools and clubs is cheap and available to all, once budding athletes progress from foundation levels to compete at county, national and international level, the costs of participation start to rise, and there is nothing currently in place to assist. National Lottery and Sports Aid funding is available for the elite, but getting to the top levels is a long arduous journey and the costs for a typical family can be prohibitive.
Cass & Friends cannot help every athlete with every piece of expenditure, but we can make a contribution which may simply make the difference between following a dream and having to give up. It would be great to look back in five years and know that our support lead to a national, international or Olympic medal for someone in our local area.

Family scenic ride around Broadway

H-Bug (Honeybourne Bicycle Users Group) are organising a short family ride around some of the lesser travelled routes around Broadway for all ages and abilities.

The scenic bike ride will be 1.8 miles, starting on the green opposite The Swan, go down to the B4632 turn; turn left along West End; turn left onto Snowshill Road and back to the green. We will ride as a “bus” so that we control the traffic.
