Local successes in Scramble Championship

Local rider Ollie Bubb (just turned 10 and pictured here receiving the trophy) won 5 out of 5 races in the 65cc group of 40 riders at the recent Andy Bubb Memorial Scramble Event in Maisemore to take the overall win.
Zachary Bubb (7) also did well and, despite a few crashes, finished 8th overall in the 50cc automatic group. 
The championship was first held in Maisemore back in the 70's.
This year there were around 120 young riders participating in this well-organised event, with youngsters from the age of 6 showing off their skills on two wheels.

Improved access to documents

From time to time there are posts on this site with links to Parish Council and other documents, but these links have not been easy to find once the post is no longer current.

To overcome this, a separate Documents page has been added and can be found in the bar menu above. It lists many documents that are either held as part of the Parish Council's website or can be accessed by a link.  All the links on the Documents page will open in a new browser window.

The Parish Council has a commitment to make what it does as transparent as possible, so improved access to relevant documents helps meet that commitment.

Andy Bubb Memorial Meeting 2019

The annual All British Andy Bubb Memorial Meeting organised by the Severn Valley Schoolboy Scramble Club will take place just outside the village this weekend (Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th August).

This event is a great opportunity for youngsters from the age of 6 to show their skills on the scramble circuit in the field at the end of Blacksmiths Lane in a fully supervised event.

Residents are very welcome to come along and watch the races, for which there is no admission charge.  


There will be refreshments, bar and children's entertainments as well as the racing.

Pedestrian access is down Blacksmiths Lane, but no vehicles should use this access which is a private road and bridleway - vehicle access is through the next entrance on the left going out of the village towards Hartpury.

It will, of course, be quite noisy, but it is in full compliance with all the regulations.
