Aldermaston Nomads Club Trials Championship – 2020/2021 – Round 1 – Cancellation

Due to Covid restrictions and the subsequent ACU permit ban, we were forced to cancel the Ellisons trial planned for 21st Nov.  I have refunded all your entries  , and by now you should have received the money back in your accounts.

Any problems, please let me know.


Thank you all for supporting the club with this trial, and using the ACU entry system for the first time for a Nomads club trial. We were on course for a full entry.  We hope to be able to run the Christmas trial on Wed 30th, but that’ll depend on Covid restrictions of course.

Tony Whiting

It is with sadness we have report the passing of Tony Whiting

Tony was a longtime member and supporter of the Aldermaston Nomads, and a regular competitor at our events.

Tony Whiting

His burial service will be on Monday 14th Sept at 1pm at St Mary’s church in Mortimer. There  will be a horse drawn carriage leaving from village before that. Please note, the access to Church may be restricted due to the current Covid restrictions.

The Calleva Arms in Silchester is opening in the afternoon for drinks.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.

Inappropriate riding at Headley

Basingstoke MCC have contacted me today to inform me that there has been some inappropriate use of the their land at Headley.  There was no events planned and I’m told the landowner was not aware.

Please note that this is not acceptable and will not be tolerated at any of the land used by the Nomads. Use of land to practice in this way is selfish and jeopardises future use for trials.


communication from Basingstoke MCC:

We have had complaints from local residents and the council that people have been using our Headley site as a practice ground during this Covid 19 pandemic, namely Easter weekend and today. There is to be NO RIDING at the site during this period, and we have been warned that we will be banned from using the site in future if this continues. Please do not ride here, the only permitted time will be at our first official trial after the lockdown is lifted. Thank you to all those who are obeying the rules.
