Christmas at High Lodge Cafe


On Friday 20th Churchill Catering laid on a Christmas lunch for all the staff of the partners and associated businesses of the High Lodge & FC site.  I can say categorically that all the Cafe staff did a fantastic job of delivering a great meal and a highly enjoyable afternoon!  All the Timber members that were there would like to thank Beverly, Emily and all the staff for all their hardwork, not only for the Christmas meal but for putting up with us throughout the year, keeping us fuelled up with tea, coffee and food. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year from all the Timber trailpixies!

End of Year Club Ride


The TIMBER MTB end of year club ride is getting to be a bit of a tradition. Last year saw a great turnout, so why not come along, wear off some of that Christmas excess and discover some new off-piste trails at the same time.

As an added bonus TIMBER MTB sponsors Sussed Out Suspension will be attending and will set-up at Santon Downham FC car park at 9am offering all TIMBER riders a free pre-ride suspension check & set-up. After a pre-ride chin wag anyone who's interested can arrange to take one of their demo bikes on the ride. After the ride they will be around for the afternoon offering further bike demos if required.

Saturday 28th December, Santon Downham FC car park at 10:00am

(9am for suspension check/bike demos)

If you have any questions, please post them on our forum. Everyone is welcome, so hope to see you there!


The trails need volunteers



More awards for TIMBER!


It's a tradition that TIMBER chairman, once they have reached their lofty position, are awarded in some way for their efforts. so past TIMBER chairman Berm Bandit has received several awards for his work in Thetford Forest including a position in British Cycling (bit of a come down to be honest).

Now finally current TIMBER chairman Martin Monaghan (we call him Moe) has received the recognition he deserves winning Volunteer of the Year from the FC at the Recreation and Public Affairs awards. To win Moe had to fight off stiff competition from a number of others and was the only person to have multiple nominations! This is to recognise the huge contribution Moe and TIMBER have made to the FC and is a way of them saying thanks.

Moe has been a long time TIMBER member, helping with build days, litter collections, trail inspections and attending regular cycle trail development meetings at the FC. In his spare time he also organises running events, but we've forgiven him for this.

His trophy - which comes complete with fetching helmet and backpack - is engraved with the initials RPA which stands for Recreation and Public Affairs and not Right Pain in the Arse. Here he is receiving his award.


TIMBER MTB is the volunteer trail group in Thetford Forest working with the FC to improve the trails
