All the discipline required for training, racing and participating in sportives was set aside last Friday night as the members let their hair down at the club’s Christmas party. This year’s celebrations were held in the Greville Arms Hotel and a great night was had by all. 

Proceedings kicked off as usual with prize giving and presentations of annual awards. The big winners on the night were Asia Bula who was nominated as “Best Newcomer”, Ian Lambden who won “Most Improved Rider” and Roy Carey, who was awarded “Club Person of the Year”. To complete the formalities club Chairman, Joe Duffy, announced Mr Donie Kelliher as the new President. Donie replaces Mr Ollie Bright who has stood down after three years in this prestigious position. 

Donie, who is a very dedicated member and ever-present figure at all club events (with his trusty camera) was greeted with huge applause by everybody in attendance. He stated that he was delighted to be asked to represent the club and promised to do the office proud. We have no doubt that you will Donie, welcome aboard!
