9 March 2017: Happy Birthday, Maurice!

Windmillers ready for the off

Thursday morning and the weather was set fair as the Windmillers gathered at the Pig & Abbot. The prospect of free beer – rumour had it Maurice would be buying the drinks – and sunny skies meant we had a good turnout: Keith, Andrew, Bridget and John T, Sandra, Rod, Vernon, John B, Ric, Brian – and the birthday boy himself, Maurice.

Lovely landlady Pat opened up specially at 9am, greeting us with coffee and biscuits and taking our orders for lunch.

Then we were off! Maurice led the way via Steeple Morden and Potten to Waresley where we stopped for yet more refreshment at the garden centre, basking in the sunshine while we watched the staff hoovering the lawn (yes, really!). Returning to the saddle we passed through the Gransdens, Hatley St George and Shingay before returning to Abington Pigotts.

Arriving back at the pub, we were delighted to be joined by Glenis and Lyn B for a slap up lunch plus – of course – a big round of drinks courtesy of the birthday boy.

Thanks to Maurice for another great outing.

Whose birthday is it next?
