To all Members...   EGM/Open Meeting

You may recall that we had planned an EGM for Sept 6th, however the main purpose of this meeting was to sanction an increase in the Membership Fees if required, the Committee havingmet yesterday and reflected on the clubs finances have decided that no increase in the fees is necessary for this year, thus the need for an EGM is no longer required. However, we areintending to hold a Open Meeting (for Club Members only) on Tuesday 13th Sept after training venue and date to confirmed - sorry the preferred venue don't work during the school holidays!

Open Meeting Agenda will include the opportunity for proposals for Chairman as Ted Grey will be retiring from this position and questions from Club Members to the Committee. If you have any other items you would like discussed please put these in writing to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Tuesday 6th Sept.

To All Members

Matters seem to be coming to a head in our on-going dispute with the Park Trustees. At the AGM Club members agreed to accept the new arrangements as an independent club on the basis of the promises RJS made about a User Agreement. The Club still awaits any form of Agreement and hence withholds some payments for hire of track. 

I attach a “time line” of the discussions and exchanges the club have had with Ray Jackson Smith since the AGM.

The Trustees are demanding payment of £2,177.50 for the months of March, February and May and have given the club a deadline date of 1st August 2011 to comply.  Without a User Agreement in some form the Club are with holding payment until authorised by members at an EGM.  The Trust have been notified. The provisional date for the EGM  is Tuesday 6th September at a venue to be arranged.

I am highly uncertain as to the action the Trust will now take. The worst scenario is that they will lock us out from the Park again.

Please feel free to get in touch with me at any time to discuss this further.

Chairman’s Letter June 2011

“ MHAC are still negotiating hard to finalise an Agreement with the Trustees of the Park. This has proved to be a rather fruitless period since the AGM. Put simply MHAC requests a User Agreement to be tabled before we pay for the hire of track , the Trustees seem to think it should be the other way round! It really is more complicated than this.

I wish to keep members fully informed about the negotiations that have been going on since I became Interim Chairman in mid February. If you would like to see a letter I sent to Mr R Jackson-Smith and the Trustees on behalf of the Committee on 12th May which summarises all these negotiations and his response please contact me by email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and I’ll send you a copy.

We have an EGM due on Wednesday 29th June, at a venue to be confirmed, to discuss progress and make decisions about the future. We hope to have made real progress by then so the full agenda must wait to see what transpires. Please log the date in your diaries.

Best Wishes , Ted

 First Aiders - can you help...

 You may be aware, one of the conditions set by Park Trustees for the club return to the track was the provision of a qualified First Aider at each club session. At present they have requested that this person's sole responsibility for the session is the First Aid. The committee are aware that is is over staffing and are negotiating on this point. However in the meantime we need qualified First Aiders, Nurses or Doctors to staff the office.

1) Occasional sessions - you let us know what you can do.

 

2) For a future list to be kept with the First Aid Kits. (just to call upon if required)

 

Dr Liz Norris has already kindly sorted the kits and staffed the office last week.

 

If you can help in any of the ways stated above please email Steve Davies
