ON A sparkling spring morning what could be better than a spin out in the sun..? That was just the job for Isabel Weatherley of Yeoford for her 80th birthday.

What was so good was that Isabel was riding pillion on a Harley Davidson motorcycle and declared her trip of several miles around the area "fantastic".

Isabel's dream had seemed destined to stay that way until Trevor and Jayne, landlords of the Mare and Foal pub at Yeoford, offered to make it come true.

So it was that on a sunny March morning, Mrs Weatherley, her daughter Jayne Clemence of Penstone, and several friends watched Isabel, wearing a genuine Harley leather jacket, set off on the back of Trevor's 20 years old Harley Davidson Softail with Trevor at the front.

A keen motorcyclist in her younger days, Isabel thoroughly enjoyed her ride. Trevor praised her pillion passenger skills and even said she might not have to wait until she was 90 for another ride!

"Meeting the Hunt, who had met near Yeoford, and all the riders leaning down and wishing me a 'Happy Birthday' was the icing on the cake!" said Isabel

Jayne was relieved to see her Mum return and delighted the ride had been possible because of Trevor's generosity.
