A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Welcome to the 2024 season with Cumbria and North Lancashire Centre, working in partnership for the next 12 months.
As most of you will now know, Cumbria are supporting North Lancashire in the hopes that by the next AGM they will have enough new Committee volunteers to remain independent. However if this doesn’t happen then plans will have been made for Cumbria to take over the running of both Centres.
For this year, both Centres’ rallies will be listed in the handbook with links to their respective booking pages, making it easier for everyone to access either Centre’s rallies. We hope that many of you will be enticed to try a rally in a new area.
There is going to be a lot of work done by the Committee over the next 12 months. At the next AGM, I anticipate those who intended on retiring in 2023 will do so at the 2024 AGM meaning that there will be a number of vacancies to be filled. As with becoming a Rally Officer, if you are at all interested please start to ask questions early in the season, we don’t want to be in the position that North Lancashire found themselves in, the year after we have helped them out.
We have an interesting programme of events for the coming year, covering both the well liked regular venues and some new ones as well. Please support our Rally Officers who, as volunteers, do their best to make our events as enjoyable as they can.
All the rallies can be booked and paid for online, but if you have any problems, or questions, please feel free to contact the Rally Secretary, Bev, or myself. If it is a more general question then contact our Secretary, Lisa, or myself.
We look forward to meeting up with old friends, and making new ones, over the coming season.
