Award of the Arthur Jessop Shield

Congratulations to Shirley Quemby on receiving the Arthur Jessop Shield for outstanding achievement and contribution to the activities of the SWL CTC. She has been a tireless supporter and activist in promoting cycling in the Sutton area and beyond particularly in regard to Dr. Bike and the activities of the Beginners group based in Nonsuch Park, Cheam at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. As Jeff Tollerman said it is amazing that Shirley has not been awarded this shield before and it is very fitting that her name will now follow on from last year's award to David Aylett who also championed the Beginners cause for many years.

The pictures show Chairman David Vine presenting the shield (with secretary Tim Court in the background).
