Family and Leisure

Blenheim Palace is home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Marlborough and his family, and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. This year, it was home to a festival of cycling, and what a display it was!

Team GB and Australia Paralympians will be competing at Bike Blenheim Palace this weekend. We'll be there! Will you?

New Forest Cycling Week - 10 Aug 2012 - Blog
More than 200 people attended the 2012 New Forest Cycling Rally. The event, for cyclists of all ages was at Avon Tyrell, the UK Youth Activity Centre. It is an ideal location in the New Forest, with superb facilities, easy access to delightful forest tracks, country parks and the seaside.

The weather forecast was not good, but for those that ventured out on the community ride it was blustery but the sun shone
