Dot Banbury

Postby John Dowling » Wed Jan 15, 2014 1:24 pm

Dot Banbury passed away on 7th Jan 2014 aged 84.
Anyone in HHCC in the 70's and early 80's will remember Dot Banbury, mother of Olympic Team Pursuit medalist Ian and wife of Alan. Those of us racing (and i was! although only 15 in 1972) will remember her support and sometimes blunt encouragement of all of us, but especially the trademark "Dig DIG DIGGG Boi."
One usually did.

Funeral is 15.40 Friday 24th Garston Crematorium.

Very sorry to hear about Dot!!

Alan & Dot were great supporters of our Junior riders and would be out giving encouragement to everyone.

I know of Dot but don't recall her, sadly. Alan of course stayed involved in the club a bit longer I think, almost up to his death some years ago.

My thoughts are with Ian and the Banbury family
