With 90 members and guests packed into our nicely decorated room, this was a fun event with the full Christmas spirit – including Ron Beale being presented with a “Bar Humbug” hat (reflecting his elevation to President of The Pickwick Bicycle Club), and Nick Gritton in full flow !!
Our President had organised a full programme of activities which meant that every minute was action packed.
A excellent quiz had us all scratching our heads, with a handful then challenging strongly for the win – the usual sprint finish!
Everyone was presented with a raffle ticket, and most won something thanks to Santa Engers and his helpers.
The big event of the day was the Auction. A massive thank you to our President Keith Penfold for his efforts in obtaining a fine collection of desireable lots. And, what a way to follow being introduced as a new member. Carlton Kirby was masterful in extracting maximum cash from those present – £1,395. The money will be shared between the Pedal Club 75th Anniversary Fund and Crisis at Christmas where our Hon. Secretary is deeply involved.
A great day!
