Bedfordshire Area of the BCC

Hi Everyone,

Here we are in the middle of October and although a bit chilly in the evenings, nothing that Ian's fire basket could not put right. We are still enjoying some very fine, mostly dry weather, in contrast to the start of the year. Speaking of Ian’s fire basket which we have all enjoyed some memorable evenings sitting around outside, instead of being huddled in the tent, it has allowed us to make the most of the very hot weather we have enjoyed this year, so thank you Ian.

Now for the good news, we have a new treasurer, Anthony has volunteered to take the job when Irene steps down at the end of the year and he has been officially appointed by the committee and the BCC. We must thank Irene for doing the job stepping into it on the sudden death of Michael Mulvihill in 2014 and doing a sterling job ever since, so on behalf of myself and the club we thank Irene very much.

We also have to thank Janet for volunteering to stand for the committee at the next AGM.

That leaves just one position left to fill on the committee and we will also need an auditor for next year.  I am sure the chairman’s position will be sorted at the meeting after the AGM if not before. 

A full program of meets has been sent to the various people who have to have them and all meets except two have stewards.  The site list will be available as usual at the Christmas Social, I have a draught copy in the caravan if anyone wishes to have a look.

That’s all for now



Nov 1st 

I have just heard the sad news of the death of Rosemary Smith wife of Allen Smith. Allen was chairman of Beds BCC in the early 1990's, around 1991-1994 I think. The Beds Area send our deepest sympathy and condolences to Allen and family. 

Rosemary's funeral will take place at Bedford Crematorium, Norse road on 20th November at 1.45. Family flowers only donation to The Heart Foundation.
