Chance encounter with the daughter of a longtime member, Fred Everett

Just after the club mini-golf championship, a couple on a walk came up to talk to us. Janice Halter is the daughter of a longtime member, Fred Everett. She sent the following message to the club yesterday.

On a walk along the Thames at Maidenhead last Sunday (11th October) we came across a group from Willesden Cycling Club at Jenners Riverside Gardens. I had to speak to them as my Dad – Fred Everett – was a very keen member of the club for a number of years and also their Treasurer for many years. One member – Ray Kelly – had certainly heard of my Dad and may have met him. I still have the many medals Dad won over the years including the Life Membership he received in 1968 for 21 years of continuous membership.
Ray mentioned the name of Gladys Purdy – a name I instantly recognised. Sadly Dad passed away in December 1996 and a few club members very kindly attended his funeral in Reading where we live ( Dad was in a care home nearby in Shiplake).
It’s good to know the club is still going.
Best Wishes to you all especially anyone who might have known my Dad or heard of him.
Good luck for the future
From Janice and Peter Halter.
