No doubt many of you like me have been glued to two weeks of brilliant Great Britain triumph in Rio at the Olympics. We are extremely proud of all our Olympians but none more so than our local athletes. As well as the Cotswold rowers our Hartpury based Dressage squad led by Carl Hester won a team silver to add to their gold from London and the heroic Charlotte Dujardin gloriously triumphed with her second individual gold. Congratulations to you all! This September children start a new school…
