2021 AGM

Hi Everyone.

Thanks for all of you that attended the virtual AGM on the 31st March. Let’s hope this is the first and last virtual AGM event!  But  given the current situation it was great to note the extent of what we had been able to achieve over the last year. If you have not seen the details, the report produced by Ade forms part of the AGM pack.

I should also like to thanks the retiring members of the committee; Val Arnold, who has supported the club in various roles for many years, and Roy Brawn, for all their work in helping run the club. We do welcome a new member to the committee in Richard Atley, and we thank him for his support, and look forward to his contribution.  Jo Tibbs has kindly agreed to step into the role of Treasurer, and Penny and Anthony Reading will remain on the committee. I will remain as Chairman and Ade as Vice Chairman, changes to committee roles and posts will be published in due course.

Some further extracts from the AGM are detailed in the Newsletter.

Thanks are also due to Anthony Reading who maintains the web page, Ken Banfield without whom there would not be a Newsletter, and Mary Medhurst who stores the clubs equipment. I would also like to thank all the members without which there would not be a club.

We will as we have been mentioned be having an open forum when we can meet again, and I would like everyone to have a think if they can help the club as fresh ideas are always welcomed. Both Ade (Lunn) and myself confirmed at the AGM we would not be standing as Chairman and Vice Chairman again at the end of this year. So everyone’s thoughts as to the running of the club, events to attend, etc etc will be most welcomed.

We will be trying to organise an event for club members to replace the ROS 2021, possibly running again a route from previous years, given the current situation we do not have a date for this, but will keep everyone informed.

We are looking to hold a further Club zoom meeting on the 21st April starting at 19:30, all are welcome and hopefully some of our members foreign shores will be able to take part, The details are below, I will also send out the details again nearer the time.
