Press Report – January 10th, 2010

Congleton Cycling Club 

Our Club sends sincere condolences to Norma Hancock and Family regarding of the passing of Roy. Roy had a heart by-pass in the early 1990’s then joined our Club and was a very keen rider and participated in Club-Runs for more than 8 years. His health deteriorated in recent years but Roy had The Cycle Centre build up a Trike with oxygen bottle attachment so that he could continue cycling. Our Club is very proud of him. 

Nine of us met at 11 o’clock on New Year’s Day at the Tittesworth visitor centre. The nine were, (from l to r in photo) Angela Taylor, Jean Shaw, John Harrison, Bob and Georgina Norton, Doug Taylor, Kelvin Milward, David and Denise Hurst. The 4-mile walk around the reservoir was enjoyed in very cold and crisp conditions, with a few snow flurries which enhanced the beautiful scenery. Afterwards we went to the tea room in the visitor centre for refreshments and more conversation. A good time was had by all!
