Reports - From The Chair

Thank you to all members who have returned the signed Data Protection letters. We are still outstanding a few who have not returned the form.

Mary and I were very disappointed at not being able to attend Hyde Heath village fete as when I went to get the TR7 from the storage unit I could smell petrol. On opening the bonnet I could see the petrol pipe had developed a split. Thank goodness it went there and not while I was driving, as the petrol was spilling out over the engine. The Austin 7 was also off the road because I have had the starter motor rebuilt and had a new battery to fit. I took the starter motor into the boys at D B J Auto Electrical in Uxbridge (their advert is in the Sales & Service page) they have done a great job and it has come back looking like new and at a very reasonable cost. The addition of a new battery with a greater power rating than standard, but which is exactly the same dimensions, plus the rebuilt starter motor means the engine whizzes over at a fantastic rate.

The Thorney Park Golf Club has a new manager, Jerry and he has confirmed that he is happy for us to continue having our monthly club nights at the golf club.

The June Feely Bag competition went well, although the number of members on the night was low. I can only hope that all is well with you all and look forward to seeing you at future club nights.

Sales of club polo and sweatshirts are going well and we have added club baseball caps at £9.00 and club mugs at £5.00. We now have the new flag and banners in use (see front cover for their first showing).


Denise, our Social Secretary has received a typed addressed envelope which when she opened it, it was empty so she has no idea if one of you intended to come to either the BBQ or the 55th Anniversary Celebrations. Denise would be delighted for the owner of the mystery envelope to come forward.


Shirley Keen is giving up her role as Club Treasurer so we need to find someone to take over from her as soon as possible. If you feel this is something you may be able to do please contact me (details on back page). The accounts are done on an excel spreadsheet, so some computer skills are necessary. Shirley will give full support to the new treasurer.There must be a club member out there who has the experience to take on this important position.
