The Centre held its AGM on 10 th January at the Cherry Tree Inn at Stoke Row with 19 members in attendance. The Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary reviewed the past year and informed the meeting of the financial health of the Centre. Overall the Centre had another successful year with many good runs and events. The current committee was re-elected for the coming year and the events list for 2017 reviewed. An interesting discussion of the new Centre website followed and we hope to have this up and running soon.
The final action at the AGM was the award of the Hardman Expert Cup for special efforts for the Centre. It was awarded this year to Ed Tilsley for his excellent work on the production of the pull-up banner on the History of the Velocette. The award was accepted on Ed’s behalf by Norman Bailie.
The next significant event for the Centre is the Annapurna Trail presentation by guest speaker Nigel Adcock on 28th February at the Cherry Tree. It’s an intriguing trip through Nepal on standard Enfield motorcycles which I’m sure we will all enjoy.
