MSW 90th Anniversary Dinner - photographs

2015 is a special year in the club's history, being the 90th anniversary of the founding of Mid Shropshire Wheelers.

In February we held a dinner and and our annual prize presentation at the Greenhous Meadow, the home of Shrewsbury Town FC. The guest speaker was MSW life member Simon Lillistone, who also presented the trophies, medals and prizes. Many members and friends of all ages were in attendance, and the club is indebted to the small group of people who worked so hard to make the event such a success.

A great set of photos from the evening taken by Adrian York can be seen on flickr:
