Julian Batty - Rest in Peace

on January 14, 2015

Our sympathies go out to to Jean, John, Helen and all Julian's family on the very sad news that Julian passed away today.

We pay tribute to a great supporter of SWFC and Wednesdayite. Julian loved SWFC and also loved cycling so much so he took part in both our Coast to Coast charity bike ride and also the Brentford to Bluebell Wood ride at the end of April 2012. We reproduce below Julian's account of the time on the road, with a few pictures of Julian included.

Rest in Peace Julian , you will be sadly missed
