For the first weekend in December 57 members and guests gave up their tents and bikes to dress up and attend the Christmas Party. Held at the impressive Royal Hotel in Ross on Wye, the town and all of its hostelries (and on Friday night its restaurants as well) were graced with members catching up and improving the local economy.
A few of us from the North stopped off at Lynnes Raven Café at Whitchurch on the way down (there were just 3 bikes in the carpark), it is rammed with them in the summer months.
I think a great time was had by all (although we heard that some members where still suffering poor health and could not join in all of the activities) It was also Radar’s birthday and we managed to sing Happy Birthday to him in several different keys and totally out of synch, but the sentiment was there.
The story is best told in pictures provided by Heather, Pete C and myself. And thanks to Paula for organising it all.
