HI everyone First report for the year I have had a very quiet time so not much to report I would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year. I would like to think this year we will be able to have a more united Club with more members participating in the running of the club E.g. organizing a Sunday run, a fun night at the club rooms ,a week day run Anything to get more involved , we can and do have a lot of fun, But we can’t expect a few members to do everything We had an email from national president regarding national day They have decided to keep it the same, the closest Sunday to Daffodil day. So much for the smaller clubs wanting to change it I would also like to welcome 2 new members Bob Wilson and Karl Stowell ,I hope they will enjoy all the aspects of our club Thanks again for your help and support Yours in motoring steve
