Many thanks to all who attended the dinner on Saturday, I hope you had a very enjoyable evening; feedback appeared to be good, particularly about the venue. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to send a cheque to Hollycombe Primary School to help with a project to encourage young children to cycle, which Josie spoke about on the evening. I have had a very nice e-mail back from Josie, thanking you all for supporting this project so generously, and saying what a “nice crowd” we all were; I think she and Gary really enjoyed it. I should also mention that the committee agreed to a small subsidy for the dinner, on the basis that it is our one main social event of the year, open to all, and it gets us all together as a club. In effect, the club rather than the attendees paid for the meals for Josie and Gary, and their minor expenses; it amounted to about £1.50 per head.
Please note that the Woking Sunday Riders coffee stop has been changed from Newlands Corner to Seale Craft Centre
Forgotten to book for the annual dinner this Saturday? Not a problem, just contact John Murdoch by midday Friday and you could be accommodated. However, if you fancy trout, you will have to choose another main course, as the Princess Royal are already sold out.

Please note that the Annual Dinner and Awards Presentation will now be held on Saturday 1 March 2014 and not 25 January, which was mentioned as the likely date in West Surrey Cyclist. The recent flooding has caused the venue to change as well, and it will now be held at the Princess Royal in Runfold, post code GU10 1NX. Full details may be found on the blog here.
