It is with much sadness that we report the sudden death of our esteemed colleague, Past President, Club treasurer and Paul Harris Fellow, John Smyth.

John had been an active member of the club for many years. Throughout the years' John used his professional knowledge of competitive cycling to help others and was a leader on the Rotary programme supporting the Joel Rider Bikes for Africa initiative. John was tireless in his support of Rotary ideals and his selfless approach at all time exemplified the Rotary aim of “Service Above Self”.

He will be sorely missed.
