The Stride kids enjoying the gates along the way
As at 29th September the 2014 Ride and Stride had raised £207.75 on the justgiving page, so All Saints Church Iwade will receive just over £100 as will Friends of Kent Churches. Thank you to everyone who donated and/or rode or strode on the day. Would you like to ride or stride next year?

It was the first year for the Stride from Iwade and the Cork and McKenzie families with dog Skye strode from All Saints Church Iwade to St Margaret of Antioch Lower Halstow through the fields and along the Saxon Shore Way. Amazing views and a wopping 10km to boot.

The Ride team which looked as though it was going to be a Ride pair of Nick Clarke and Jim Buston turned out to be around 8 strong and managed a massive 40 miles (apologies for the lack of consistency with our measurements!). Fantastic effort!

A big thank you to Graeme and Pamela Horner who bought a Ride trophy which was duly awarded to Nick Clarke for the most chains broken during the ride. Nick is hoping not to win the trophy again next year and has given the trophy pride of place in his loo until September 2015 :-)

Well done everyone, looking forward to September 2015 already.

You can still sponsor the Ride and Stride team at if you haven't already and a big thank you from All Saints Church Iwade and the teams for all your donations to-date it's much appreciated!
