Meet Kate & Bill

Kate Johnson and Bill Fishwick

Bill is a civil engineer who is currently working on flood defence and Kate has recently retired after 36 years courtesy of the NHS mostly as a midwife.  As a reward Kate is now secretary of this club.

Bill had the not uncommon  relationship with bikes that began as a youngster, progressed to cars and then back to bikes for the last twenty years.

Kate’s father ferried the family around in a BSA 650 outfit, mum in the front and kids in the back, dad wearing the obligatory flat cap, army greatcoat and leather gauntlets. So, when Bill arrived home with a VT500 one day it was not an entirely new concept. (Although it was a surprise and not altogether welcome)

However on the "can’t beat them join them” principle we have motorcycled happily ever since, thoroughly enjoying the tours and friendships formed through the club.
