Richard Jumps for the Band
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

December 15, 2010: Exbourne Cross Garage proprietor Richard Brock wanted to raise money to support Hatherleigh Silver Band. Determined to do something memorable, he decided to jump out of a plane tandem-fashion! The plan was to do this before the Band left for a competition in Harrogate, but for one reason or another the jump was postponed three times and it was well after the event that he eventually took to the skies. Nevertheless, he raised over 1700! "And the best bit was?" we asked him when back on terra firma. "Jumping out was fine," he said, "and free-falling was really enjoyable. But hanging under the canopy for the last part was horrific!" Well done anyway Richard. Here are some pictures of Richard's jump.
