Dene Rally is 5!
Last year saw another successful Dene Rally take place in Charlwood Lane, Monkwood. With over 150 exhibits of all shapes and sizes, congregating in a field in June they dodged the showers and enjoyed the sun to raise much needed money for two causes close to their heart. Initially supporting just the Mid Hants Watercress Line, in 2015 they also gave a donation to the Friends of St Peters help with their ‘Raise St Peters’ appeal. The rally ran, almost to the day, a year after the devastating fire that destroyed Ropley’s Parish Church so the committee felt it only right to try and support the fund to help with restoration and rebuild costs. At the Christmas Victorian Market the Chairman and Treasurer of the rally presented Alison Wood, Chairman of Friends of St Peters, with a cheque for £650. Soles buses, which ran the coach service linking the site to the Watercress Line for the weekend, kindly included their fee in the donation. This year’s Dene Rally takes place on 25th & 26th June where it will be celebrating it’s 5th year and is looking forward to being able to support both ‘Raise St Peters’ and the Mid Hants Watercress Line again.
