Online community and the Countryside Alliance’s Eastern Region are teaming up to put on a unique ‘muddy’ speed dating experience for country-minded people of all ages.

Mû´dd|ŷ n.
Any person who loves the countryside and is not afraid of a bit of mud.

The evening will take place from 7.30pm on Friday 25th April 2008 at Tattersalls Sale Ring, Newmarket and will see a wide range of single country people coming together from across the region and even further afield to see if they hit it off.

Speed dating is an organised matchmaking event that focuses on meeting a lot of people in a short period of time. Every participant gets the opportunity to spend 3 or 4 minutes chatting to each member of the opposite sex and must then make a note of which of their ‘dates’ they would like to see again, either romantically or as a friend. A day or two after the event, they are informed of any matches and given their contact details.

“It is a tried and tested formula and a really fun way to meet some new people”, says Lucy Reeves, of Muddy Matches. “Sometimes people worry that they will not have enough to say to some of their ‘dates’ but what makes this event so great is that, being specifically aimed at country-minded people, everyone attending will automatically have something in common.”

“We are delighted to be working with Muddy Matches on this joint venture, and look forward to bringing together like-minded people for what promises to be a very entertaining evening” says Alice Barnard, Eastern Regional Director of the Countryside Alliance. “We are very lucky to be holding the event in such a central location in the capital of flat racing. Our thanks go to Tattersalls and their team for providing us with such an historic venue.”
