She has probably lost count of the number of letters and emails she has written on behalf of the club never mind the number of times she has marshalled at club and open race events.

Hazel has also been involved with the club members’ registration with Cycling Ireland and in recent times also helped with the distribution of the club’s clothing. Congratulations Hazel – this award is long
overdue.

Hazel received her award at the Ballymena Road Club annual prize presentation dinner and dance which took place at Eaton Park last Friday evening.

Club members were joined by guest of honour Andrew Moss who distributed the silverware.
