I had a phone call from Martin Figg last night — he is the new Secretary of the South Dorset Section and he hopes to get the following into the May Journal Section Notes:
Support for the Section has been mixed of late, but following the AGM in March a fresh start has been made with the support of a core of local members. Recognition and thanks are extended to John Morey who has stepped down as Chairman after many years. Rod Hann becomes Chairman, Martin Figg, Secretary and Andrew Samways, Treasurer. Informal Section Meetings will be held in the skittle alley of The Three Compasses, Charminster, Dorchester DT2 9QT on the fourth Thursday of each month, the next being on 23rd May at 8.00 p.m. It is planned to establish a programme of Sunday Runs, initially once a month, starting from either Dorchester or Bridport. It is hoped to attract support from both former and new participants and additional events (to address members preferences) will be introduced, given sufficient support. If you’re a former rider, new to the Section, from a neighbouring area, or better still a potential recruit, you will receive an open welcome. Watch out for Diary events, just turn up, or contact one of the members named above. If you would like to receive information by email, please notify Martin Figg, as above.
You can contact Martin on 01305 774793, 07896507278 or email him at Figg.firstname.lastname@example.org. Rod can be contacted on 01935 872528 or email him at email@example.com
