A sad addition to the 30th October edition of TA EAST E-NEWS:

Dick Knight of Hessett has died.

Mike Smith writes: Dick Knight passed away last week. He suffered a fall and a stroke on Monday, and although later regained consciousness and was taken off the critical list on the Tuesday, passed away on Thursday.

The funeral has been arranged for Thursday 8th November, at 3pm, at the West Suffolk crematorium at Risby. 

I last met Dick at Mildenhall Rally in August, when he was in a wheelchair but cheerfully chatting.

Many will remember Dick and Glad at Ixworth criteriums and Bury St Edmunds grass meets, attending on their tandem trike with its big black bag on the back, and often giving interested spectators a ride on the tandem.

Our condolences go to Glad, herself not in good health, to their daughter Diane, who used to be a regular tandem trike stoker and to Mike and their children.
