Re: Richard Joyce

Many thanks all - am getting there slowly, tired a lot of the time but start cardiac rehab in a couple of weeks which'll give me goals to achieve.

Whilst I wouldn't be so dramatic as saying I was at 'death's door' it really has made me realise what's important in this life.

Re: Richard Joyce

Thanks for the kind wishes everyone, it's really appreciated. Went for my first proper walk this morning (for about 10 mins) and I'm still here to tell the tale. :)

Re: Richard Joyce

Morning fellas, Thanks so much for the well-wishes, it's been a slightly tricky week to put things mildly. Been doing a lot of walking recently without a murmur - including a week's holiday up in Northumberland with the family (including the mad hound) where we spent most of each day climbing dunes,...

Re: Jacks Hill Cafe, Towcester, Sunday June 9

Apologies fellas (especially to Paul who texted me about the meet-up) but I won't be able to make it tomorrow.

Hope you have a good one.

Re: Sad News

Hi Peter - I don't frequent the forum much these days, but Paul texted me last night with this sad news. So sorry to hear of Alan's passing, and of course wish you strength and what will be a terribly difficult time. Alan was very high on my list of truly great people to have known over the years, a...

Re: Shocked

Apologies, Steve - not been on here reading stuff for a while so only saw this post yesterday. What a truly bloody awful thing to happen - glad you're (reasonably!) ok. But of course get checked out, and keep following things up with the quacks. A little story about some dog-thieving pikeys from a f...

Re: Sad news

Oh and Gromit, sorry do you mean Tuesday 12th or Wednesday 13th December? Sincere apologies, I meant the weds (13th). I'm hopeless with dates! I'll amend my previous post to alleviate any confusion. Would really like to have got to Mick's funeral (although I have no bike to ride, sadly) but our Chr...

Re: Sad news

Helena - Mick's daughter - has been in touch with me with details of her dad's funeral. It's to be held at Bretby Crem on wednesday 13th December at 10.30 am. We realise it's a bit of a long-shot but she wondered if there was any chance of having a couple of folk on bikes to escort the cortege on th...

Sad news

Folks,

Just had the terribly sad news, from Bev's Facebook feed, that Mick Finch passed away last night after his year-long battle with Cancer.

I've met many great people over many years of motorcycling, and Mick was definitely one of the best. A bloody good photographer too.

Sleep well, my friend.
