We have a crossing point for vehicles from Low Habberley to Habberley Road, crossing the cycling route which goes along Habberley Lane (B4190). This allows vehicles to cross the route ahead of the first cyclist coming through, and immediately after the last cyclist. This crossing point will be managed by marshals, and is open until 0845 AM latest, and will reopen from 1345PM.
We have been advised that it should be possible to cross the route of the velobirmingham at the Habberley Road / Low Habberley crossroads before 8.30 a.m. Good luck !
Just a reminder that it will be chaotic around Kidderminster due to the velobirmingham event if you are trying to get to Trimpley for the RYA course. Start out very early as the road closures begin at 7.30 am. You could of course try walking from Arley or swimming down the river !!

On a wet, blustery day, seventeen Lasers sailed in the Trimpley 2017 Laser Open. There were six visitors and eleven home sailors. John Ling from Bartley Green won all three races and took the title from R. Pratt sailing as RYA. Andy Allan and Paul Powell were equal third after two races, with Andy taking the 3rd place by beating Paul in the final race. Congratulations to Craig Chadderton who despite being at the back of the fleet showed great perseverance to finish all three races in testing conditions. There were a number of “controlled” capsizes by sailors who shall remain nameless – just check the photos ! Thanks to Linda and her galley workers for the usual excellent food ; to the safety crew and to Norman Quarry and his team for running the races with such aplomb ! More photos to follow.
