Walking Rally

When: Wednesday 20th July.
Where: Grimston, Pott Row and Roydon.
Start: Hudson’s Fen Play Area PE32 1BP Map 132 701 227
Organiser: Paul & Janet Smalley.
Tel. 07831 811 865

To introduce a more social family event to our calendar that Wives, Partners and Children may want to take part in Paul & Janet Smalley have organised a short walking rally around the villages of Grimston, Pott Row and Roydon. This will take place on Wednesday 20th July with teams consisting of two adults and up to 2 children leaving the start at one minute intervals. Hopefully it is early enough for some older children to take part as it will start at 6.45pm.

It starts and finishes at Hudson’s Fen Play Area PE32 1BP Map 132 701227 where there is ample free parking. The trail is approx. 1.5 miles long and should take around one hour. To keep you busy there will be 60 questions to answer.

The route uses surfaced footpaths where possible but there are sections on quiet roads where there are no footpaths. It uses a stile to access an unsurfaced footpath and a loose surfaced “trod”. It also crosses roads that may be busy so please take care.

To make it slightly competitive and similar to a clubnight rally it will be timed to the minute and there will be a fail for each incorrect or missed answer. There will be a prize for the winning team.

Once everyone returns to Hudson’s Fen the intention is to then go to the three Horseshoes Pub in Roydon PE32 1AQ Map 132 706228 for a drink and the results – hopefully it will be a nice evening as they have plenty of tables outside.

Entry fee will be £2 per team and any profit will be donated to Hudson’s Fen Play area.

For further info or to register your entry please contact Paul Smalley either by email to paul.smalley@kier.co.uk or Tel 07831 811865.

Very late entries will be accepted so please don’t just turn up on the night as there may not be spare paperwork available.

JACK FLETCHER

It is with sadness that we record the passing of Jack Fletcher, a vice-president and founder member of the Club, at the age of 98.

Jack joined KLDMC way back in 1953, so was a member for 69 years! He served as Treasurer in 1956, Secretary from 1957-59 and Chairman  from 62-64. He was later elected President from 1968 to 73 when Hugh Piggins, who also died recently, was twice Chairman. Jack then spent almost 50 years as one of our honorary VPs, last journeying south from his home in north west Scotland, at the age of 78, for our 50th Anniversary Dinner in 2003.

Jack was a regular competitor in the 1950s and 60s when he competed with many of his contemporaries such as Derek Thrower, Anthony Proctor, Frank Smith, Ron Howe, David Cave, Dian Catcheside, John Mawby, Tony Longmate, Ivan Cunnington, John Clarke and his brother-in-law Hillebrand Bos. His memory will remain at KLDMC through the cup he co-presented to the Club with Derek Thrower. The Fletcher-Thrower Trophy is still awarded annually to the clubnight champion driver.

Our sympathy and thoughts are with his wife Edwina, who survives him, and their extended family.

HUGH PIGGINS

We are sad to report the recent death of Hugh Piggins, a former Chairman of the Club, at the age of 81

Hugh and his wife Joy, who survives him, were enthusiastic members in the 1960s and early seventies.

Hugh served two periods as Club Chairman: initially for 1968 & 1969 and again from 1973 to 1975, as well as a short stint as Treasurer in 1970. He was a long-standing Committee member from the early 1960s through to the 1980s.

He was well known for campaigning an ex-works Mini, often with Eddie Markham alongside on the maps, on many Club and regional events winning the KLDMC Challenge Trophy for Champion Driver on rallies every year, bar one, from 1966 until 1972 inclusive.

Hugh & Joy presented two trophies to the Club:

The Hugh & Joy Engagement Trophy, on the occasion of their engagement on New Year’s Day 1964, for the best performance in a BMC Mini.

The Hugh & Joy Wedding Trophy, donated a year later, for the Off-the-Road champion driver.

Hugh’s funeral is on Friday 1 April at Gedney church at 11am. Our thoughts are with Joy, and Hugh’s family & friends, at this difficult time.
