Special thanks went to CJ Performance Cycles as all riders who took part in any of the events received a goody bag.

George Webster was a local man who instigated the Friends of Gallagher Park. George and Stephen McIntosh obtained funding and secured support from local councillors to build the track in 2010-11.

Without the build Barnesbury CC would not be coaching at the park today or Northumberland CC would not have a development plan for the park for cycle use.

George’s aim was in tandem with the club’s – to develop cycling potential, regardless of age, ability, sex, religion.
