This was supposed to take place in VERY sunny weather, as forecast even as late as the day before.
As luck had it, Malcolm Fisher returned from his retirement to put the mockers on it.
It was fair stotting when rising and no sooner had the writer taken his waterproofs out, the bold Johnny rang to inform he had a number of call-offs and the Run was cancelled. I replied that there might be tougher members waiting and we would have to turn up in case there were such idiots.
We gave our apologies and buggered off- no we didn’t!
We felt it would be useful to see how we got on in the cafe under the new Covid restrictions. The Staff were up to speed, and confirmed, 2 max to each table as a Group & sit well apart. As can be seen, this worked out fine- although, if there were 20 of us we would take up the whole place, which we did, in any case.
The 2 Car drivers (Johns) returned to the bosoms of their families, and the others, I understand, just farted about.
Provisionally, next Run, Sunday 20th Sept. Keep a look out
