"My post lady just delivered the cup. It is beautiful and I shall be very proud to have this presented in memory of my husband at the Cycling Club Breckland Annual Dinner and Prizegiving. Terry won the award last year. He had been a forester (with the Forestry Commission) all his working life; all things wood, and cycling, were his passions. He would have been so chuffed with the cup!!"

I could not be happier with it and cannot wait to see it in person. It is even better than I envisaged, especially seeing how you managed to integrate the chapter pin to give it character and humour too.


The trophy arrived this evening and is even more impressive than expected - I love it! Thank you.
