We pass on this sad news from the Swindon Club
Brian Freegard 1936 – 2015
It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Club Member Brian Freegard who has been a club member since the late fifties. Throughout the years he had been an active member in all the clubs events, be they scrambles, grass track, trials, social and of course Enduro.
Thirty seven years ago, Brian approached Lord Bathurst with the idea of running a motorcycle event in Cirencester Park. The Corinium Enduro was born. Thanks to Brian’s efforts we are still using the Park for not one but two Enduro.
Brian has been Club President, Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. He was very involved with Rights of Way and keeping the Ridgeway open to motorcycles.
Outside of motorcycling, Brian was an active member of Purton Historical Society, Purton Museum and Swindon Model Boat Club.
Brian leaves his wife Doreen, daughters Sandra & Helen, son in law Keith and grandsons Liam & Adam.
Brian’s Funeral will be at St Marys Church, Purton on Tuesday 26th May at 10.30 am followed by his internment and then refreshments at The Red House, Purton
