It was interesting to see the re-building progress made at the
track generally, Tony and I were impressed with the track surface
and colourful boardings all the way round the fencing, though the
grandstand didn’t look quite so grand all boarded up with
evidence of damage to the roof. The narrow entrance lane is
somewhat pot holey and little has improved with the outbuildings.

Lets hope more work can commence in the near future. What
was encouraging was a group of teenagers keenly playing cycle
polo in the designated area – the bike handling skills were to be
admired – quite fascinating just watching their expertise.

In some down time, I even managed to sell on some of Tony’s

trade jerseys that appear to ‘swamp’ him at the moment – as
he has no intention of increasing his stature in any way, we
recycled them to the Addiscombe lads, the money collected has
been given to Malc, who rode the KCA 12 hour to gain funds for
the Demelza House (Kent Hospice for Children).
