Wocket Woy and MBBA – Now what is that all about???

Anyone heard of Mattie Bachelor, better known as Wocket Woy?  Mattie and the ‘pwoducer’ will be ‘helping’  (!)   MBBA with our big summer event at Kingfisher in June with musical dressage divas and stunt riders.  Fun for all the family so keep June 17th free for a whole afternoon of equine entertainment.  Tickets will go on sale in May.

Fun Rides for your diary;  Glastonbury Festival Ride – September

Greenscombe Ride, nr Bruton – October dtbc

Wonderful, noisy, quiz night on Jan 13th, ably run by Lynda le Ray.  A full house which raised over £200 for our funds. Thank you everyone for taking part.

Our fantastic MBBA Glastonbury festival stewards have once again beaten their last year’s donation. A huge thank you to you all – this really does swell our funds and enables us to do even more good work during 2017.

If you are an MBBA member and would like to register to be given the chance to steward in 2017 – please email to start the process of applying. If you were a steward this year, you will automatically be offered the chance to apply again. 021

Another great fund raising year for MBBA with lots of big projects 003completed.  With our new Chairman Jo Rossiter at the helm, we look forward to the coming year.

The funds are available –  so let’s have some projects from you for 2017!

As we are an entirely voluntary association, all the money from subscriptions and  fundraising goes to improve our riding routes in Mendip and create new ones. It is time for all riders to take on the responsibility of ensuring the future of off road riding.  You know what significant improvements MBBA has achieved in the last few years in fact over the past 8 years we have funded over £75,000 worth of improvements to routes across Mendip.

Your support as a member is the cornerstone of our Association and enables our work to continue.

Please join today – it is just £15.00 per annum and gives big benefits to members.

  Contact if you have a problem with a right of way and we will try to fix it.  Sometimes we joint fund with Somerset County Council, sometimes we fund the whole project ourselves.  Whatever the problem, we promise to do our best and stretch our funds as far as they will go.


The aims of the Association are to protect and preserve the character and status of Mendip’s green Ways, to advertise their existence via our map marking service and to encourage the active participation of our members to identify routes in need of improvement. We have a good working partnership with Somerset County Council and indeed many of our projects are joint funded.
To find out how we have been improving rights of way in the area, please see our Routes News page.
