We are sorry to have to announce that Ted Heather, another well known Centre member, has passed away recently following complications after surgery.
Many of you will know that Ted was a former Centre President & Harry Croft Trophy holder, and although he hadn’t involved himself in the Centre for some time, he was still a working member of the Scottish Six Day Trial organisation, in the Parc Fermee & putting out the daily Route Marking.
Ted was one of those quiet people who put a lot into the sport – numbers of Riders had the benefit of a little “help’ from Ted which wasn’t always appreciated as much as it should have been
When we have more information we will be post it here.
A name that most of you don’t know? is Ray Dury, who also passed away recently, he was Centre Trials Recorder Pete Dury’s Dad. Ray started working in the Douglas motorcycle factory in Kingswood in 1935 when he was 14. He rode trials after serving the RAF during the war & rode Trials in the 1950’s & early 60’s on a variety of machines, together with Gerald Kibby & Arthur Mellors as a Kingswood Club member. Pete would love to see any Trial Result Sheets of Events his Dad rode in. Maybe Gazettes of that vintage might turn something up? If anyone can help please get in touch via the Gazette or directly with Pete.
North Somerset MSC announce that due to the current spell of wet weather they have had to change the venue of next Sunday’s Terry Bunn Trophy Time Trial from Scars Wood, Lulsgate to Malthouse Farm, Chelwood.
