Bromsgrove pensioner revists youth during visit from BSA Owner's Club

Harry Leach 3rd Dec, 2019

A PENSIONER was taken back to his youth when he was visited by members of BSA Owner’s Club.

Chandler Court care home resident Bob Shuck, aged 85, spent many happy hours watching workers test BSA motorbikes outside his home when he was growing up.

Care home staff found out about Bob’s love for motorbikes through their ‘Wishing Tree’ initiative which looks to reward residents by making their wishes come true.

Thinking on their feet, the team got in touch with the local BSA Owner’s Club to organise a surprise visit.

They even invited Bob’s children and grandchildren to experience the special day.

Bob said: “It was so good to see the bikes again, I remembered how much I love the way they look.

“It was a day I will never forget.”

Jo Gill, home manager at Chandler Court, said: “Bob is well known by the team for his love of BSA motorbikes, so it was a wonderful moment to see his face light up when he saw them.

“Thank you to the BSA Owner’s Club for coming down and showing Bob the bikes.

“I’ve never seen him smile so much.”
