Bill Hollingsworth 1924 – 2011

We received the sad news today that Bill Hollingsworth passed away at home on the 5th December. He would have been 88 in January.

Bill was a life member of the ‘Chesh’ and, until 2 days before his death, ran Meadows cycle shop in Cheadle. (As he had done for over 50 years!)

He was the club’s clubroom steward and, as well as opening up the Drill Hall and setting out the tables and chairs, brewed up for the committee every month.

He will be remembered by many outside the club for collecting pound coins from riders prior to the club 10s, 25s and hill climbs which we held for many years.

Our sincere condolences go to his wife, Kathleen, and family.

Bills funeral was at the Southern Cemetery on Friday 23rd December. Several committee members represented the club.

  • 2018 Open 50

    Unfortunately we had to cancel today’s 50.

    An accident on the A556 caused the A556 and Penny’s Lane to be closed prior to the start. The resulting delays affected a 600 ton wide load which had to come up Penny’s Lane and we couldn’t guarantee when the course would be clear. The Police estimated a 90 minute delay to our start but it could have been much longer!

    We are looking at rescheduling the event for early September.

    We apologise to all the riders and marshals for a wasted journey.
