Castle Challenge 2022

An update from St Leonards on Sea Rotary Club…

As you know we were hoping to arrange rides in September this year to replace the  proposed event in April 2021 but we regret to say that has not proved possible.  However we will be organising the usual three rides for SUNDAY 24th April 2022 so please put that date in your diaries and tell your friends. Full details will be available from January 2022.
