  2. Hi Jo, how lovely to hear from you – and delighted to see you’ve found your way to our Facebook page too. I was at Denman college today with my WI head on, I do love the cross-over between the two worlds. Yes, I’ll be over for the TT sidecar Newcomers weekend 22-24 February and am very much looking forward to the TT this year. Perhaps you could pop down to the paddock and say hi – you’d be very welcome and we’ll make you a cuppa. All the very best, and look forward to meeting you soon. Anne

  3. Hello Anne i was sat in Cottage hospital waiting for blood tests and picked up a WI life magazine. I read your article and am a bit cross with myself as i havnt heard of you, and living on the Isle of Man and also being a motor cycle and TT and Grand Prix freak i thought i knew about everyone. Are you planning on coming to the island again?. Anyway it made interesting reading and is an inspiration. I hav ridden motor cycles for over 50 years now and i am 67 but still ride a Honda CB1000R and i love it. Safe riding regards Jo Fitzpatrick Isle of Man

  4. Hi Anne,

    I have just read your article in WI Life and really enjoyed seeing someone else (in the WI) who is sidecar mad! Had a look at your web site and FB, all makes for good reading.

    I used to be very involved with racing and the chairs back in the late 60’s 70’s, being before your time you won’t have heard of the guys I knew. These days I’ve come full circle and ride pillion again, don’t go to short circuit races, much as I’d like to, as husband doesn’t really enjoy them, but we do the Manx GP. I used to do the TT as well but it’s so busy these days that we don’t bother.
    Of course when I say ‘involved’ I don’t mean actually riding, although I was asked to passenger a few times, but my German (passenger) boyfriend, with the help of one of the first female passengers, talked me out of it. I do admire you for getting on with it.
    My WI is in Worthing, West Sussex and we are still fairly new but building our membership slowly. I like to think that we are a divers lot and not all jam and Jeruselum. Shame you live so far away, you would make a really different speaker 🙂

    Best wishes, Liz
