Newsbrief Winter 2021

Chairman’s Update – January 2021

Firstly, I would like to say Happy New Year to all our members and friends. This year the committee have decided to keep the club’s subscriptions the same. We realise that we were unable to to run the full years schedule due to lockdown and restrictions, but we are again planning a full schedule of events. We are hoping that we can run all the events we have planned as I am sure everyone is.

The committee and I would like to thank everyone for their continued support with subscriptions as this only covers the clubs insurance and BC affiliation costs. This allows us to continue as a fully insured club. This year we have decided that our first single day event will be free to members as a way of saying thank you. The club relies on your support to continue and we are very grateful and hope that the future will allow us to start driving, competing and socialising again as a club.

Take care and thank you all again
