Vale of Glamorgan Section leader Barry Cooksley seriously injured in crash.

Barry Cooksley was unfortunately badly injured on April 14th when he crashed on his bike while out with 10 fellow section members on one of their runs near Ogmore by Sea. Barry came off his bike (no other vehicle was involved) and landed hard on the road, cracking the rear of his helmet and injuring the back of his head. He was unconscious and had to be airlifted to hospital.  He is making a  slow recovery and is improving every day but it might be a while before he is back in the saddle.  Thanks to Ray Butcher and Ivor Slade of the Vale of Glamorgan group for the information; I’m sure all NACC members wish Barry a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in action soon.
