Richard and Margaret are Life Members of CTC in every sense. Richard joined in 1955 and Margaret in 1966. Wherever they have lived; from Yorkshire, Devon, Kent, Wiltshire, Scotland and now somerset, they have been active CTC local officials, or started new sections where none existed.
Margaret’s caring and generous nature has supported the welfare of Club members in all their groups. Richard’s skill as a ride planner and leader is legendary. Throughout his CTC life, members have benefited from his thorough research and remarkable knowledge to enhance rides.
Margaret and Richard led CTC Tours in Europe and at home, organised Youth Hostel trips, social events and attend the Birthday Rides every year. They keep abreast of campaigns for local cycling facilities and seek out potential routes to encourage cycling in their area. For the last ten years Richard has been CTC Wessex Treasurer and Margaret a CTC Wessex Vice President. They created and ran the Blackmore Vale Section for ten years and are now positively encouraging the growing group. Richard and Margaret exemplify the altruism of a true CTC local Group Member, and have the respect of all cyclists who know them.
