2018 Awards & Annual Dinner – Ed Pratt – Photos in Gallery

Witham Wheelers held there annual dinner and prize presentation at the Old Barn Hotel at Marston. After the meal there was a talk by Ed Pratt a young man who set out on a 36″ wheel Unicycle to pedal around the world in 2015, which took him over 3 years, many details of which can be found on You Tube. With slides, videos and the unicycle in question for inspection, this was a very entertaining talk and could have gone on for much longer if time had allowed. A true British eccentric in every sense of the word.

After a short interlude trophies were presented to the clubs 2018 award winners present on the evening. There was also a vote for Club person of the year, which went to Ian Rayson in recognition of his support for club events during the year.

Many thanks to Paul Green for stepping forward to organise a very enjoyable evening.
