Jean and Keith Lakin - Leicestershire and Rutland CTC - Certificate of Merit
They were part of the 1997 Birthday Rides organising team which took place during Leicestershire and Rutland CTC's centenary year and have organised and helped on events not only in Leicestershire but across the East Midlands with Jean organising the catering on many occasions. In December 2011 they organised the 60th annual Leicestershire Cyclists Carol Service as part of their local Charnwood CTC's Diamond Jubilee Year.
As officials they have served as secretary and assistant secretary of Charnwood CTC for the past 21 years, are long serving members of Leicestershire and Rutland CTC committee where Keith has served as both president and chairman, and are both members of the CTC East Midlands Region committee. They represent CTC and cycling at National Forest meetings.
They are always willing to help others organising events by marshalling and catering and their infectious enthusiasm never wanes.
