Preparations are going ahead in earnest for the Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt’s Point to Point meeting at Charing. Race day is on Easter Saturday 4th of April and if past attendances are anything to go by, there should be a good crowd to cheer the Jockeys on as they make their way round the 3 mile course.
The first race of the afternoon is scheduled for 2 pm with Pony racing beginning at 12-30. To keep the race goers occupied before and in-between races, there will be plenty of trade stands providing the opportunity for some retail therapy.
For the children, all the fun of the fair can be had with Ridley’s family fun fair. Caterpillar train, cup and saucer rides, inflatable slides, bouncy castle, bungee trampolines, hoopla and cork shooter stalls and more will be provided to entertain them throughout the day.
Point to Point Admission Charges
£20 Each Car-Main Car Park
£10 Single Person Occupancy-Main Car Park
£30 Parking At The Top Of The Hill With Panoramic View
