What can I say about Alan Haynes? I gather that he still appears on club runs from time to time as a friend of Roger Mitchell. The Christmas dinner clubrun was one of the high spots of the winter. Booked at the Parkgate Cafe [is that still there?] the numbers were such that two sittings were required. While the first party was demolishing the turkey and christmas pud, the second sitting repaired to the pub over the road to await their turn at the trough.Their meal finished, the early diners replaced the early drinkers at the bar. The ride home, in the gathering gloom of a December afternoon, was a very jolly affair enlivened by the occasional crash as one or other over indulger touched a wheel or misjudged a corner.
