There was a time not long ago when a turn-out of eleven would have been a good number, but as we’ve had fifteen several times recently that’s slightly disappointing. Seven of us took a steady ride out via the usual route to Willington, Kevin, Martin, Geoff H, Pamela, (Potential new member) Steve, Stuart and myself leading. Paul, Alan and Chris taking a longer route via Ashwell, but we contrived to arrive at more or less the same time. Geoff P was already there, having ridden direct from Meppershall. Blossoms as usual was friendly and efficient, dealing with the flood of business very well, considering they were already busy. 
The ride back was again via the usual route, with a little assistance from a tail wind, with myself and Geoff P turning off at Clifton. We even had a little sunshine and warmth, something that’s been in short supply of late. Adrian Winterbone.
