MICK LATIMER

Postby pga » 12 Mar 2019, 10:23pm

i have just read in the latest Arrivee the sad news of the death of Mick Latimer in far away Tasmania. Mick was the warden of Salisbury Youth Hostel in the days when youth hostels were still the places for cyclists to stay. We could not find a better warden - the most friendliest of men, Mick could light up every room he entered. He also was a leading light in AUK - the first elected Chair. I rode many UK randonnees as well as the 1979 PBP with Mick. I missed him very much when many years ago Jan persuaded him to start a new life down under. Knowing Mick he would have made many friends there and I am sure all, especially Jan, who I met once or twice, will miss him.
