Hills, Haggis & a wee dram – 28 January 2017

08 Jan
January 8, 2017

Just a reminder that the ‘Burns’ Night’ social is coming up on Saturday 28th January.
@_PiEeyed are doing the catering and are providing haggis pies; mash and neeps (mashed turnip) and there is a vegan option.
The Blake Hotel in Walkley for £10 per person will give us a selection of whisky to sample with the meal which, if 20 people come along it works out at £6 a head for food so £16 per person is pretty reasonable.
Bob Cuff is organising and has nearly 20 names on his list but if you’ve not let him know yet that you’re coming then please get in touch via the Club website, Facebook or Twitter – @rutlandcc or @bobcuff_1

Obituary – Bert Ridge

A belated Happy New Year to all Rutlers….
Not the best way to start the year but I received a message last night from Andrew Ridge letting me know that his dad Bert Ridge, long-term Rutland stalwart passed away peacefully in St Luke’s last night (3 Jan.2017) around 6pm with his family around him. I believe Bert was about 93 but he’s pictured here from a Club run back in the 1950’s.bert-ridge-club-run-1950s

Obituary – Glynn Singleton

28 Sep
September 28, 2016

I received a phone call this evening with some very sad news from Keith Parker informing me that his brother in law Glynn Singleton passed away at home yesterday (27 Sept.2016)
Glynn turned this year 70 and had recently had a few health issues. There will be a post mortem tomorrow so I do not know any other details at this time.
This news has come as a complete shock to me.
I knew Glynn very well as we rode many events together when he came into the sport in the early 1990’s.
Our thoughts go out to the family especially his wife Barbara and their children James and Fay.
