  • Leyland Festival 16th June 2018 – Forgot to pack the ark!

    Leyland Festival 16th June 2018 – Forgot to pack the ark!

    After weeks of glorious sunshine we should have known better than to bring out the central area gazebo. Our third major event of the year and our third wet one! Despite the weather we had a fabulous time and had an excellent attendance of members from all areas. Along with some new faces, we had the pleasure of the lovely Gary Warn who is once again an active member in North West Blood Bikes proving that once you join this amazing group there is just no escape!

    Goosnargh and Whittingham Women’s Institute

    Within Central Lancs area lies the beautiful rural village of Goosnargh, a village that our riders pass through on most days. It is also the home of the Goosnargh and Whittingham Women’s Institute who meet in the village hall, which is where Mike Hockney and I caught up with them and delivered a talk on what we do at North West Blood Bikes and how this benefits their community.

    Ghost Bikes Grand Opening Event 10th March 2018

    Becky Newton, Events and Talks Coordinator for our Central area writes:

    What a start to Central area’s events for 2018! We were contacted only a week before the grand opening of Ghost Bikes’ new premises in Preston and at short notice it was a big ask to pull it all together, but we did it with a brilliant turn out of members from all areas including those from another Blood Bike Group! Not seen so many people in Hi Viz or so many liveried bikes in a long while

  • Vintage Tea Party is a great success

    Vintage Tea Party is a great success

    Becky Newton, organiser of the Vintage Tea Party writes: As you know I had a dream of bringing people together to enjoy tea and cake and we certainly did that. The community centre was dressed up in bunting, balloons, jam jars filled with flowers and delicate China crockery galore. It really did look pretty and within 20 mins of the event starting we had a person in every seat and the place was buzzing.
