Report:
Thanks to all who attended. The business was concluded as communicated beforehand and the new Committee is established as proposed.

It only remains to reveal the winners of the two Club prizes, Best Club Person and Best Newcomer:

For Best Club Person, the Committee was very clear that this needed to go to the wonderful Des Higgs. Des is a stalwart of the Club and the sort of person who is always going to go the extra mile (sometimes literally) and help out with what ever is needed. Of course, his lovely wife Chris and her amazing cakes feature in there somewhere too!

In some ways Best Newcomer was slightly more difficult, but only because we have had a very strong set of people riding with us for the first time this year and making their mark. So we decided to give honourable mentions to:
- James Bosley
- Clare Hazell
- Julie Haynes
But the winner is Di Whidborne for her amazing attendance on so many 1* and 2* rides this year and her wonderfully positive approach to club life.
