A King's Lynn civic welcome for a marathon cyclist in September, 1975.

Lynn sea cadets joined the Mayor and Mayoress, Mr and Mrs Fred Juniper, in September 1975 to welcome a marathon cyclist to Lynn on his thousand-mile ride in aid of the Fishermen’s Mission.

Derek Simpson had started his ride from Lowestoft and reached Lynn late in the afternoon after a stop at Norwich. In the following eleven days his aim was to pass through Hull, Newcastle, Carlisle, Lancaster, Manchester, Derby and London.
