The Glyn Jones Award

Following the sad passing of one of our members in July 2019 it was decided to create an award that could be given annually for a period of time to commemorate his commitment to the group and that this would be awarded to a member who, in the opinion of the committee and members votes has contributed positively to the group and it’s achievements over the previous year.
Glyn was a tutor, giving his time and experience freely to associate members and also our Tail End Charlie for the rideouts, keeping the group together for the most part.

The 2023 prize has been awarded to Bill Croxon who has been a past chairman and remains a Senior tutor for the group. Bill has for many years supported SaPAR in his committee and tutoring roles and is supportive of our monthly rideouts.
