The more the merrier :D

Now's your time to get any motions or topics raised and for anyone who wish to be considered for any of the club roles to raise them either here, via Paul Fixter, our club secretary, or any of the current committee.

You can still do all this on the day but a bit of notice would be appreciated :)

Just as a side note, it might be worth letting people know that the post code to use is actually CV1 1JR for Sat Navs, which gets you to half-way down Chauntry Place. When it says "you've arrived" just keep going forwards and you're at the bollard entry to the Plaza.

It's worked way better than the actual motor museum post code (CV1 1JD) for me, as on my old-ish Tom Tom using that just deposited me on the ring road around the Plaza and I had no idea how to get onto it. People have in the past few years got completely lost - they get to the ring road around the plaza (just like I did the first year I went) and then have to park up and find a club member walking around to chaparone them through the back streets. CV1 1JR gets you through the tricky side streets and one-way system automatically.

Yip, that's the plan.

I'm aiming for about 10.30 to allow them a few minutes Grace to remove the post but then I am quite local :)

lotus3512 - It was a pleasure to meet you at the AGM, thanks for coming. Great to have some young blood coming into the club. Hope to see you at future, less prosaic, events. Lovely car you've bought - I hope you have many, many miles of enjoyable driving in it. Best wishes, Duncan.

Thanks to all who came along yesterday to the AGM. It turned out to be a lovely sunny day, as you can see in the above photos.

There was lively debate - thank you Nigel :D and the new club committee is as follows:-

Paul Vincent - Events Secretary*
Jonathan Living - Treasurer
Jeremy Howson - Membership Secretary
Duncan Gillingham - Secretary
John Batchelor - Chairman

Non-committee roles are as follows;-

Jeremy Howson - Magazine Editor*
Steve Huckle - Webmaster
Paul Fixter and John Batchelor - Social media managers

* The need for a 'understudies' for these roles was discussed as both Paul and Jeremy have been fulfilling them for some time. If anybody is interested in 'learning the ropes' with a view to taking over the role in the near future, this could start at any time throughout the year not just at the AGM. So if you are interested please discuss it with one of those names above.

I'm pleased this one went to an enthusiast. Other than my being a bit tall for the sunroof, and the asking price a bit ambitious, I'd have made the trip to Plymouth for it!
You'll find it being poverty spec is no barrier to becoming besotted. Mine, identical minus sunroof, plus rust and lunar mileage continues to defy 'common sense'!
