Sunday Fishing

The boys had an early start this Sunday, up and out by 7.10am. Tom, Johnny, Max and Jake are all keen fishermen, however, coarse fishing was going to be a new experience for them. Pete England, the groundsman at Cothill, not only gave them a full days tuition but even cooked us all bacon and eggs once the rods were set up!!! We had wonderful weather and after a slow start, the fish started to be pulled out of the water one after another throughout the afternoon. Jake caught the whopper of the day.

Riding heroics: Cothill boys bring home the silverware!

In August three Cothill boys (and a pony club teammate) won the Area Regional Pony Club Show Jumping Championships at Rectory Farm near Cirencester, beating over 130 competitors, aged up to 15 years old. Charlie, Freddie and Bertie’s team were delighted to no penalty points in the hotly contested jump off. Nine year old Charlie, riding Caramac, was also 6th individually and was believed be the youngest competitor in the field.
