MSW 90th Anniversary Dinner - 7th February 2015
2015 is a special year in the clubs history as it marks the 90th anniversary of the Mid Shropshire Wheelers.
To mark the occasion we are holding a dinner and prize presentation on Saturday 7th February 2015 at Greenhous Meadow, the home of Shrewsbury Town FC.
It will be a sit-down meal, a traditional club dinner, followed by the presentation of prizes for 2014 and live music from The Rainbreakers.
The guest speaker is MSW life member Simon Lillistone, a two time Olympian and the Cycling Manager for the London 2012 Olympics & Paralympics, who will no doubt have many interesting stories.
