Sam Publicity Page June 2011 With the season now well underway the team have been busy at the Orwell Promotion day and also the Bury Bike Show as well as our continuing commitments to the monthly BikeSafe sessions organised by our friends at Suffolk Police. Reports on these events will follow next month. The big news this month is that our new Committee member Paul Spalding has generously agreed to join our event organising panel. This is of great assistance and we are very grateful to Paul who â€œvolunteeredâ€? at the last Committee meeting. His arrival enables us to spread the organisational role more widely at a time when our resources were becoming very stretched. ( in other words, Nigel was doing all the work!) Paul has already re-designed our Special Events Discount Voucher to excellent effect and we are bringing the new version into use for all future events this season. The big event for us in June is the Felixstowe Bike Show on Sunday 26th. SAM is involved in three separate capacities, with the publicity tent in the town centre in the heart of the show, and also through the charity ride-out and assisting with bike parking in the town. This really is an occasion when we will need all the support we can get, so please check your diary. We are looking for a maximum of two hours of your time, so If you can help us man the publicity stand on the day, please contact Nigel or Paul as soon as you can with your preferred time to attend. July will see us represented at the Ipswich Classic Bike Show on Sunday 10th. This is based at Stonham Barns and will be another full day event, so as always, please let us know if you can help. Also we will be at BikeSafe on Saturday 16th, so again, offers of help will be greatly appreciated We look forward to hearing from you
