On Sunday 17th March club president Mike Hutchinson celebrated his 80th birthday by holding an afternoon tea party for around fifty of the present CTC Lancaster and South Lakes membership. There was a club run before the event, with coffee at The Apple Store, Scorton, after which the riders made their way by various routes to Barton Road Community Centre, where many other members were waiting to greet Mike.
However there were more surprises as he had no idea that sons Tom, Neil, Ian and Tom’s partner Ciara were waiting to see him! This was quite a shock, and very welcome surprise! Club digital images were running as attendees partook of the splendid afternoon tea. A good time was had by all.
Thanks must go to Anne and Pauline for organising the event and members too numerous to mention who helped on the day putting out the tables and chairs, acting as bar persons, washing up, tidying the room etc. We can thoroughly recommend the community centre as a venue for any future club activities.
