On 21 December 1988, 259 passengers and crew aboard Pan Am 103, set off from London Heathrow, but did not reach their destination. Instead, a terrorist bomb caused the aircraft to explode in the sky above Lockerbie, killing all on board, plus a further 11 residents in the town, when large sections of the plane crashed to the ground.
The entire town and its surrounding communities were deeply affected. Thousands of emergency workers, from the town, the region, across Scotland and throughout the United Kingdom responded.
Cycle to Syracuse is a community initiative, instigated by the people and services in Lockerbie, to remember all those lost, honour the response of the community and emergency services and to show support for all who suffered in the times that followed.
To mark the 30th anniversary, four emergency service cyclists and the Head Teacher of Lockerbie Academy will complete the journey that was never finished. They will be supported along the way by local schools in the Lockerbie area, local cyclists on the way to Edinburgh Castle, and by numerous international friends as they complete the 3,238 miles to Syracuse University.

Well done to all the runners out yesterday raising money and awareness for this great cause. Near 4,000 in all braved the weather and obstacles on the day with 140 entered from ScottishPower itself.
Special mention must go to our own girls and in particular Tenor Drummer Blythe Gerrie who managed to persuade all the females from the band to come out and run the race and celebrate her birthday with her.
Excellent effort ladies well done!
AGM successfully completed with reflection on another great year for the band. Then some food and drinks to celebrate. Great night was had.
