Branch Report for March 2013

We held our yearly AGM on the 4th March with about 35 members in attendance. There were some changes in the branch long standing Branch Committee and several members stood down from their posts.

 The membership wanted to thank John Nelson (Ex Chairman) for over 30 years in various roles during which time he has done an exceptional job for the branch. Not to let him go too easily he is still the Branch webmaster and Liaison officer for the BMF.

Martin Wake stepped down as Branch Secretary and also his Partner Carol and again a big thanks for all their work in the branch over many years especially last year (arranging the first Meriden Rally that was such success) and for Carols work with arranging the various events and sorting out the branches clothing orders etc. Martin is still going to arrange this years branch rally and will still be involved in the planning of some of the events.

A special thanks for Kazzie for being the Branch Scribe and whose humorous notes appeared in the magazine last year. A special thanks for delegating the task to me!

We have a new chairman (Steve Bradwick) Branch secretary (Steve Jones) the other responsibilities on the committee stay with the previous incumbents. Good luck to the 2 Steves the membership at the AGM voted for them unanimously.

Due to the awful weather the Mike Hailwood memorial run was cancelled which would have been the branch’s first spring ride out. Last year it was 20 degrees!!

Upcoming events.

Sunday 7th April-Prescott Bike Festival-9.30 Am from Stratford Bike Park.

Sunday 21st April - St George’s day Parade - Meet at Tesco’s A34 Solihull 6.00PM.(Only St George’s flags to be flown).

Lets hope the weather doesn’t ruin the start of the biking season for these events!

A warm welcome to Robert Perks our newest member.

Ride safe
