20th November
Well done everyone - last Monday we raised a grand total of 570 for the air ambulance. Thanks go to Rob and John for running the auction and the 111 that has been added into the above total, being straight donations. I had 5 earlier this year, but can't remember who from, so apologies for that. Other donors, Bob J, Dave W, Tony D, Terry H, Roger T(on behalf of Simon Pritchard). Added to that is the fact that Bob bought one of the Christmas Hampers and it has been donated direct to the Air ambulance for them to raise money with. Thanks to Barry for providing his large jars of pickled onions - he wanted to prepare them when he was in hospital, but was refused permission by the medical staff, but he still managed to get them done in time. Thanks must also go to Mary and John for their hampers, which raised some good hard cash. Not forgetting all the donated items and those who bought them - only a Rob, as auctioneer, could have waxed lyrical about some of the items, just as though he was describing a Velo.

17th November
On my visit to HQ last Thursday I learnt that all the motions on the agenda paper for the last General Meeting were passed, with the exception of the one regarding turning the Library into a trust.

Sad to say that it looks as if the Bristol Section will not be running the South West Coast Run in 2020, as they could not find someone to organise the event. Their section calendar is on our events page, at the bottom.

28th October
We're now getting well into the "dinner jacket season", with runs just about all but curtailed - our next is "The day after Boxing day run".  
On the 26th Jean and I were at a lunch in Porthcawl with Howard and Carol. Afterwards we paid a visit to Brian and Wynne - who send best wishes to the section members.

Banbury date for 2020 is 31st May - moved from the third Sunday in June, as that is father's day and the idea is to attract younger members who feel unable to ride Banbury, when they feel that they need to spend time with their fathers.
