In January, we decided to have a change, and instead of having a winter talk, we organised a Bring and Buy.  There was a very good attendance and quite a few members went home having bought the item of their dreams, and a few went home with heavier pockets.  It seemed quite a popular event, giving everyone some extra time for socialising.  Thanks to John Kent for his sterling work in the kitchen.  At the end of January, we had a skittles match at The Milbury’s, kindly arranged for us by Eve and Greg Smith.  I have not had an official report, but I understand it was well supported and the members I spoke to enjoyed the event.

Now with details for the next couple of months.  We are still hoping to have a winter talk at Rake Village Hall on 6th March, but are struggling to find a speaker.  We have had a few leads via some of our members, but it seems difficult to get volunteers to come out to us at a weekend.  We are still working on this, so will hopefully have some news in the journal next month.  Obviously, the details will be on the website as soon as we have some information for you.  Don’t forget Gail’s winter walk on 13th March.  Hopefully the weather will be kind.  We have a soup run on 20th March being organised by Nick Tucker.  If you are an early riser, then there is a 09.00 breakfast meet at the Café at Redhill Aerodrome.  For those members who like to tinker with their bikes, there is an Airheads Mechanics Day on Sunday 3rd April, 09.00hrs to 16.00hrs, at Perham Down Community Centre.  There is a charge of £15.00 which includes tea, coffee, cakes etc, and a local take-away lunch.  There is limited availability, so to book please contact Richard Evans or Trish Bond to book on 01372 378196, or

Hopefully you have all had a chance to look at the calendar of events which came with your journal, and picked out some of the runs and events that interest you.  More details are on the website, so keep an eye on that, especially for additions and last minute changes.  I know there are quite a few of our members who ride all year round, but for the rest of us, spring is nearly here, so lets’ get out and about.
