Tim has now completed 1,416 lengths - equivalent to the 22 mile Channel crossing , two weeks ahead of schedule.
The challenge stays open until 7th December and as he is just short of his financial target of £1,000, any contributions will still be gratefully received. Tim also sends huge thanks those who have already contributed.
More details can be found on the Aspire Channel Swim 2015 website (challenge/leaderboard). He is currently 16 on the leader board of 3,745 nationally.
You can still follow his progress on the Aspire website leaderboard via www.aspirechannelswim.co.uk ....go to... the tab headed 'The Challenge' drop down to 'individual leaderboard', click, and at the base type in 'Tim Street'.
The amounts raised on the leaderboard include offline pledges which may be redeemed at various stages, so if you would like to pledge a donation please let him know by email. Amounts given now, or later payment of pledges can be made directly to Just Giving with or without 'Gift Aid' via the https://justgiving.com/timstreetaspire135 link which is shown on his 'challenge page'.
Any contribution however small will be greatly appreciated.
If you have any photos of Long Newnton looking resplendent as we head into autumn, please send them to Lucy Beck and we'll share them here on this page.

White Village Gates:
Gloucestershire Highways have recently agreed to the installation of white village 'entrance gates' as a speed calming measure on the main road through the village. The scheme is to be jointly funded by the Parish Council and Gloucestershire Highways under the Community Offer Scheme. If anyone requires more information or has comments to make please email Kev Beck.
