2018 AGM Award Winners

At March’s AGM the following winners were announced/voted for

Trevor Timmington

Trevor Timmington

WAG's Kup Winner
2017 WAG's Kup Winner
Proposed – Ian Bayley
Seconded – Richard Nicol

The winner of the WAG cup is traditionally a member who has become infamous for his cycling exploits during the year.  This year Trevor was the outstanding candidate for his “Stour valley shuffle” which saw him disappear off the track, down the bank towards the river.  Luck was on his side as he managed to wedge himself between the bank and a waste pipe, avoiding an early bath.   When other members worked out what had happened it took 5 of them to get him out.

For those of you that are concerned fear not,  the electric bike Trevor was riding survived

We missed the chance of getting a pic of Trevor with the cup so here’s one of Paul Sherwin & Phil Liggett with the trophy!
