Mildenhall Cycling Club will be holding a mini-reunion this month (June) to celebrate its 55th year.

The reunion, which will take place between 12 noon and 5pm in the new West Row Village Hall on Sunday 29th June 2008, will be an ideal opportunity for members past and present to get to together and reminisce about their cycling experiences.

After its incredibly successful golden jubilee reunion in 2003, the Club are keen to continue and foster the high regard that Mildenhall Cycling Club is held within.

Organiser of the reunion, committee member Mark Burchett says, “It will be a far more informal affair than our big 50th year reunion five years ago. The main thing is to provide a relaxed atmosphere where everyone can meet and just have a good catchup. It was clear from the last reunion that many people have a special affinity with and for Mildenhall Cycling Club and as a committee we feel it is important to do all we can for that to continue.”

“We've already had ex-members like Adrian Rochford from Derbyshire and George Wadman, a member in the 1960's from Leicestershire confirm they are coming,” he added.

Before the reunion, there will be a gentle club-run in the morning starting and finishing at the West Row village hall between 10am and 12 noon.
