A team of pensioners learned to abseil so they could scrub their local landmark in time for our visit*. Members of the Rotary Club in Westbury, Wiltshire, whose average age is 72, strapped themselves into harnesses and descended off the steep hill above the town to clean the famous white horse. See here for the full story.
(The line of white buildings visible at the top left of the photo is the Village Pump Folk Festival site, where John Jones and the Reluctant Ramblers will be playing on Saturday 21st July, and Oysterband on Sunday 22nd).
* Officially the clean-up was in honour of the Diamond Jubilee. But we know it’s really for us….
