CHLOE’S HALF MARATHON 2021
Chloe was unable to take part in the Vitality Big Half 2020 on 1st March 2020 due to our family bereavement.
However, due to ongoing Covid restrictions Chloe has decided not to run next year in the organised event. The good news is she will be running the half marathon around our village accompanied by friends and family for the 13.2 miles. This will take place on the same day as the Vitality Big Half 2021 event which is 25th April 2021.
Chloe will be keeping her sponsorship page open and for those of you who may be interested in reading more about why Chloe has chosen this charity and who may like to donate please click the link – https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ChloeBellotti

Our Gloss Silks are popular with
Split-Cane Rod Restorers who use them to whip rods and floats. Pipers Floss Silk is used to make flies for Fly-tying.
“Since 1995 I have used Piper’s Silks 80/3 spun silks and 90/3 gloss silks and been particularly satisfied with the quality, strength and extensive colour range of the threads.
The service and advice I have received has always been exemplary, both friendly and helpful to me and my students, with knowledge that is second to none.
In a word, I would sum up Piper’s Silks as being excellent.”
“I have been using Piper’s silks for over 25 years – in fact it is safe to say that without them, I would not have the career which I do today!
Embroideries which I worked almost three decades ago are as vibrant and colourful now as they were when first stitched!
Their shades, textures and ease of use continue to be an inspiration and joy.”
“For many years I have worked with Pipers Silks. They have many different qualities that can be used for many different laces. I especially like the 4/20 for Chantilly and prefer the spun silks for the gimp.
The Floss is my favourite for Flanders and all the other Flemish laces like Mechlin and Parise because it fills the clothwork so nicely. The huge range of colours also helps to bring Polychrome Blonde alive.
Also, for Rib and Roll, my project for 2010, I use 6/20 Fine Twisted Silk and 90/2 Twisted Gloss Silk because these threads are incredibly reliable in durability, they rarely break, whatever we do to them while making our sewings.”
