SAD to report the passing of local enthusiast Barry Bentley from Ulverston who left us last Saturday after contracting coronavirus.

A member of the Furness branch of the Vintage Motorcycle club and several others, his enthusiasm for motorcycling had no boundaries. During the summer he`d often be seen chatting to fellow motorcyclists at the Bardsea & Pennington meetings and at the Torver breakfast gatherings. He`d recently given the local vintage club an slide show of his motorcycling days. Sadly with the present restrictions he won`t be given the usual motorcycle escort on his final journey. However his wife Pat assures they will hold a service celebrating his life when conditions permit.
