They sang & played their hearts out: two superb bands put on a stunning night to remember a stunning 15 year old

We knew it would be quite a night last night at the Picturedrome – but we didn’t know it would be such a night to remember.  It felt like teenage Holmfirth met 70s rock and punk; and they got on great 🙂  Huw was there in spirit including the 4 banners that made a beautiful backdrop to the set.   The stage and set up looked a million dollars – the bands, the lighting and Huw behind and above it all.  The night was a perfect combination of people having a wonderful night, great performances by the 2 bands, and everyone remembering Huw in such a positive way.

Dave Brennan & Nick pedal behind & watch with awe as Huw’s Uncle Steve & cousin Doug powered up Holme Moss to complete cycle marathon

Dave Brennan and Nick pedalled behind and watched with awe as Huw’s Uncle Steve (46 yrs old) and Huw’s cousin Doug Wilson (13 years) left us in their wake as they powered up Holme Moss at 10.00pm on Friday 1st July.  Steve had cycled 179 miles from Cardiff and Doug 102 miles of it earlier in the day as they ripped into that mountain like men possessed to complete their last 9 miles.  Dave (who is a seasoned and very competent cyclist) and Nick, had cycled up the Holmfirth side of the hill at 9.00pm and down the other side to meet them – and they pulled away from us up the Woodhead side.  Inspired by the 3 cars following and their massive achievement – and mostly inspired by Huw Thatcher who they love and will never forget for the rest of their lives.
