November 9th 2018 - 90th anniversary dinner and awards night

Great night at the KVRC 90th anniversary meal and awards night.

Our 90th Anniversary Dinner guest speaker was Professor Phil Leigh who now lectures at the University of Hull. Phil’s links with the Kent Valley go back 45 years where he took everyone on a colourful journey populated by club characters past and present. Phil has been a director of North West Division racing teams, an event organiser, professional racing team director, coach and mentor, and was involved in the running of this year Tour of Britain. He represented GB himself in 1990 and is still holder of the Kent Valley RC 24-hour record with a distance of 461.57mls set in 1995.

Phil Hull (still a double two-up time trial club record-holder) and his seven-piece ukelele band provided a musical backdrop to our Awards Dinner. There was also a Nostalgia Corner for everyone to bring along any old club memorabilia to “share” on the night.
