Peter Scott’s Funeral

Dear All

As most of you may have heard by now I am deeply sorry to hear that Peter Scott has passed away.

I know that Bob Tomlinson has circulated an email to many to inform you of the cycling procession that will be meeting at St Mary’s Church Chalk at 9.30am on Friday 11th September (See link to map below and refer to Bob T if you need more details). You will be able to park at the Crematorium (DA12 3JH) and ride to the Church.

There are too many people to list that we would love to attend the service however due to Covid restrictions we have been limited to 30 and will not be holding a wake. We have therefore set up a webcast for those who wish to watch live from their homes or tablets or wish to download afterwards. Please see details below.

Please find below the details required for the webcast for Peter’s funeral service. This information can be passed onto any one you can think of who wishes to watch the service.

Live Webcast and 28 days watch again
We can confirm we have created a Live Webcast 28 days watch again for the late Peter Trevor Scott.
You will find below the Username and Password for this Live Webcast along with the times it will be available to view. Please distribute this username and password to family and friends (you will shortly receive an email you can forward to them). They will be able to login to our website at any time to view a Test Webcast which we recommend they do in plenty of time before the service, during the service window they will be automatically redirected to the Live Webcast of the service.

Calling all former Sunday Morning Section riders

Another item whilst going over past cycling events. The former Sunday AM section celebrated their birthdays by yearly themes, which were guided by Mrs Wander-a-Long. Many people came along on the rides and met the Old Lady (Tour Guide). Do past attendees have pictures please?
Dibden Treacle Mines was one.
