In return for Ripley Village Hall providing free viewing facilities during the recent Olympic Road Races, former National level rider, Wally Happy of the Norwood Paragon, is putting on, free of charge, at the Ripley Village Hall Annexe, an illustrated talk of events at Herne Hill,the only remaining 1948 Olympics venue still in use. Impoverished after WW2, we ran a superb ‘Austerity Games’ in which all our cyclists won a medal.

The talk will be given on Thursday 18th April, starting at 8pm. A donation of £1 per person to the Hall is suggested. All people interested in cycling are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
