A LONG-RUNNING charity equestrian show will be jumping into Meldreth again this weekend.
The 14th annual indoor show jumping event will be held at Meldreth Manor Equestrian Centre, in Fenny Lane, on Sunday.
Proceeds from the show, which is organised by Vivien and Graham Bruce, go towards Bourn Village Church.
Mrs Bruce came up with the idea for the show when she moved to Bourn from the North East of England 15 years ago.

It begins at 9.30am on Sunday, with different classes taking place throughout the day, culminating in a last "winner takes all" class with a �20 prize.
