Prior to the pandemic we had a huge number of events planned from Audaxs’ to trips away, from BBQ’s to film nights, but inconveniences came along and none of these happened. As we finally emerge from the pandemic, the committee feels that it’s time to re-boot the club and get things moving again. Whilst we have the amazing team working behind the scenes to deliver the Leisure rides and time trials programme, there are quite a few other people involved in the running of the club too.
Over the last few years we have introduced “Sub-Committees” that have met to organise various different events, such as the Club dinner, social events, leisure rides, website etc. This leaves the full committee free to meet several times a year to agree and ratify propositions and budgets put forward by the sub-committees.
A couple of these sub-committees are now running pretty well, but we’re always on the look out for other volunteers to help out and assist with the running of them. This is nothing onerous and most of the groups only meet once every couple of months, usually socially to talk through ideas and generate programmes for the next few months.
We are planning to have a Club night again on a Weds PM at the Sports and Social club, probably once or twice a month, (full details to follow) where we can meet other members who we perhaps don’t see out on the road. This will also enable us to sell club kit, of which we have a good amount of stock, and if we don’t have your size, take details and order it for you. We will also be able to arrange informative talks or practical hands on events, such as basic mechanical skills etc. If you have other ideas or subjects you would like to be covered, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
And we’ll see what we can get sorted – in this connected age, we can get things done quite quickly.
The plan for the year is to hold the AGM in November – we will announce the date at least a month in advance – and we will be looking to fill a few positions on the committee, full details of these will be given closer to that time. The main committee will then plan to meet in December, March, June and September, with the sub-committees meeting at their convenience in the between time.
