The inaugural Simon Bibby Marshals Award was presented at the 2300 Club’s committee meeting last night.
Club chairman Neil Molyneux handed over a pair of engraved goblets to Allan Whittaker, whose name was drawn out of the hat at the end of last month’s Andy Mort Tour by Simon’s dad Stuart.
“It was very fitting that Allan’s name came out as he is a long-standing member of the 2300 Club and has marshalled on the Andy Mort Tour every year since it started in 2016,” said Neil.
The award was made in memory of Simon, who was Chief Marshal on both the Tour of Mull and Andy Mort Tour, and sadly passed away earlier this year.
“I feel honoured, emotional, yet happy and very lucky to have my name pulled out by Stuart for the first year of our Simon’s award,” said Allan.
“Thank you, we all missed you Buddy and for sure you and Andy were in all of our thoughts.”
