We have already started to plan events for next year so if you have any suggestions or runs you would like, let us know. John Bungay will be looking for volunteers during the year.
John Bungay, Christine Grindley and myself are willing to continue in the “club roles” for 2020 BUT very happy to stand down if anyone else in the club would like to take on the role. It is important that new people are involved. If you would be prepared carry out one of the roles please let me know and you will be warmly greeted!
As you are aware the club does not have any membership fees and only raises money from raffles etc. In the bank at present is £520 plus a further £146 raised at the Christmas Lunch. The main reason for holding a balance is to cover any deposits required in advance for booking lunches, this can be upto £10 ahead meaning a payment of £300.
No individual club member receives any payment. In the last year we purchased a new flag/banner for the club.
We have recently become more concerned about liability issues and insurance matters that the club may be faced with in the future and have looked at what other clubs are doing in this regard. There are a few insurance companies that specialise in this area which we have spoken to and also taken advice from the FBHC (Federation of British Historic Car Clubs)
Quotes have been obtained from two Insurance companies and they both offer cover for around £140 pa.
After discussing this with John Bungay, Christine Grindley and myself we have decided to go ahead and pay the insurance from within the club funds.
We had 49 members booked in for the Christmas lunch which was held at the Wroxeter Hotel, although it was a wet dismal day we made up for it by enjoying each other’s company and a good lunch on the whole, as we know it is always difficult getting the veg out at the same time as the main meal but carrots with the Christmas pudding for Gill was just “a tad too late”!! The table that won the quiz were way ahead of the other tables so well done to them.
