Bann Wheelers Cycling Club held their Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Saturday 28th November at The Lodge Hotel in Coleraine.
There was plenty to celebrate following an excellent year for the club and members.
The Club Chairperson Jane Millar welcomed everyone and gave an overview of how the club had grown in stature over the year and all the achievements that had occurred.
Jane thanked everyone involved in all areas of the club as without all his time and effort the club would not be what it is today.
