14 March 2019: Happy Birthday, Maurice!


Alas, Storm Gareth put paid to Thursday’s ride – but that was no reason to miss out on a good lunch – especially when Maurice was buying the beer.

Animated conversation at the top table

Joining Maurice at the Pig & Abbot were eleven well-wishers / beer-swilling freeloaders: Ken, Andrew, Graham, Victor, Chris, Keith, Ric, Rod, two Simons and one Brian; all tucking into Landlady Pat’s meat pies with gusto. And then there was cake – topped with a bloody great firework – to follow.

Let’s hope there’s no storm next week – for the sake of our waistlines.


Where do the years go, eh? It seems no time since we last toasted Maurice on his birthday. Here we were in 2018
