An MBE … and other news
A BIG thank you to you all for your nice comments about myself being awarded the MBE in the Queens 90th Birthday Honours list.
Unfortunately the Queen could not join us at The Prince of Wales presentation night due to another engagement, so it looks like Sally and I will have to go to the Palace instead! (The word is that Prince Harry is after a ride, and is up to volunteering this year to improve his chances.) I am looking forward to going to receive the medal on behalf of the army of volunteers it takes to run the Fred Whitton Challenge – there is no way we could do it without you all.
There will be a presentation night (and a MBE party) at The Prince of Wales in the next few weeks, we are just looking for a suitable date to finalise the event and full details will be on the website in the next day or two.
We are already planning for the 2017 Saddleback Fred Whitton Challenge, which will take place on Sunday 7th May and we will be booking the same weather we had this year with the same travel agent… full details of how to enter will be on the site from the1st December and full entries will open from the first week in January.
Thanks again from myself and Sally and hope to see you all again in 2017.
