Becontree History

It all began in 1925 as a result of a conversation on a train (one person being the first president Dr J. Prosser-Evans and another the first chairman Mr Phil Brannigan), as a result a small Social Sunday Run was formed and from this small beginning the Becontree Wheelers was formed.
