Our annual christmas meal was held again at the Copy Nook, Bolton-by-Bowland.
This year the event was attended by 41 members and friends, who enjoyed a 4 course meal in our usual private function room. As always there was plenty of time to socialise during the meal, as well as before and afterwards in the bar area.
Unfortunately this year, due to the very bad weather conditions and icy roads, only one member managed to cycle to the event, while others that had intended to cycle made alternative plans. We do normally have a club ride to the meal, where some members have in the past decorated their bikes for the day, and even provided some christmas music to accompany the riders.
The Bill Heywood Trophy is awarded annually, in honour of our past Club President who sadly died in 2008 at the age of 93. A secret ballot is held at our AGM to determine the recipient of the trophy, in recognition of the work they have done for the club in the past year. This year the trophy was presented to John Ramsden by Club President Ian Lowcock.
