Wimborne MCC have postponed the Wimborne Whoppa from Sunday 23rd September until Sunday 21st October 2018, the event will still be at our Merley Hall Farm venue. The change has been forced upon the club due to the amazing hot weather the south and indeed the country has been basking in which has created extremely hard ground and grass that is now a fire risk.
With putting the event back a month it allows time for some rainfall to hopefully soften the ground and to bring back the grass for the landowners sheep. Landowner Mr John Wood who like farmers around the country is facing a tough winter, with currently next to no green grass he is having to use his winter feeds early. It was touch and go if the event would be able to run this year due to the hot weather, normally we moan about the rain disrupting our lives and events so this is quite a surprise. After taking everything into consideration, the committee together with Mr Woods continued assistance and friendship, are very pleased to be able to confirm the running of our 50th anniversary Whoppa this October.
