Fishtail 465 – December 2019

Not a lot to report for this edition of Fishtail.  Our Tuesday mid-week evenings usually see eight to ten members meet up at the Cherry Tree for a drink and natter about Velocettes and the rest of the world.  We had our first Wednesday lunch time meet of the winter in November at the Riverside […]

Fishtail 464 – October 2019

The weather hasn’t been too good during recent weeks with two planned runs cancelled and a very wet second day at Kop Hill.   Over the two days there were eight Velocettes on the club display at Kop Hill.  Saturday was a good day but Sunday was very wet and consequently attracted less visitors to the […]

Fishtail 463 – September 2019

I have been unable to partake in most of the Centre’s activities recently and I apologise in advance for the rather sketchy report.  Activities have continued apace with Popham Megameet on S11th August.  Again a good turnout of Velocettes from TV and nearby Centres.  The weather was good and a lot bikes attended the event.  […]

Fishtail 462 – August 2019

The last few weeks have seen a lot of activity at the Thames Valley Centre.  In addition to our regular club nights at the Cherry Tree, which continue to be well attended, there have been five runs.  Unfortunately I was not able to go on the first three, the Flower Pot run on July 3rd, […]

Fishtail 461 – June 2019

Our annual run to Cheddar was well attended, with 6 Riders meeting at Padworth, 2 more joining at Hungerford and 2 more at Beckhampton. A lovely sunny morning perfect ‘bike riding’ weather. Unfortunately our normal morning ‘pit stop’ at the caravan near Trowbridge turned out to be shut. However with the help of Chris Wiggins […]

Fishtail 460 – April 2019

With the better weather our events programme is gathering speed.  There were three runs in April, the first was to the Hovercraft Museum with South Hants.  Unfortunate we were late getting to the start and it was decided not to carry on to the museum.  The weather was better than forecast for the midweek run […]

Fishtail 459 – March 2019

A relatively quiet time of year at TV, our trial midweek lunch time meetings have been quite well attended and it is good to see some members who can’t make the evening meetings.  We are going to a different venue for the March meeting which may be more convenient for members who live in the […]

Fishtail 458 – January 2019

The only event since the last Fishtail report was our annual AGM on January 11th.  It was well attended by 26 members.  Dennis and I gave a review of the last year and Keith presented his Treasurer’s report. Norman lead the review of events for the coming year and it looks like we have a […]

Fishtail 457 – December 2018

Only two runs since the last report as the cool days and long nights draw in. The Berkshire Downs run in October was eventful in that one of our riders took a tumble on a bend and hurt his elbow and ribs. Fortunately he is recovering well and we hope to see him on his […]

Fishtail 456 – October 2018

TV Centre had four runs since the last Fishtail report. On 19th September nine members enjoyed a run to the Iron Age and Town Museum in Andover. The route was mainly back roads from Padworth to Andover. The Museum features artefacts found at Danebury Hill Fort. It is a small museum run mainly by volunteers […]
