Merrie Harriers Bonfire Society’s 20 mile charity cyclathon has been put back to Saturday June 21.

Organisers said the popular event, that follows a circular route has been postponed as the original date clashed with prior commitments of many regular supporters.

Les Webb, committee member, said: “Hopefully in accommodating some participants we will have not inconvenienced others - but if we have then our apologies are tendered.”

Those taking part should meet at the Merrie Harriers at Cowbeech from 10.30am with the intention of setting off no later than 11am.

Cyclists taking part with sponsorship will be adding to the monies raised throughout the year for the benefit of local good causes.

Entry is free and forms are available at The Merrie Harriers but if anyone would like additional information please contact Les Webb by email on
