The website

When I took over the website it needed hosting. This was done thanks to the to the generosity of Section members Peter and Dot Jones who hosted the site on their server DJ Automation Engineering Ltd


For practical reasons DJ Automation can no longer host the site and I've therefore now moved it over to my server. I would like to acknowledge the contribution of both Peter and Dot, their support allowed us to keep on the net and helped the section to grow accordingly. Sadly Peter passed away but Dot still continued to help us, donating a really good projector that we use regularly for talks and presentations in the club-house.


For all of this the Section would like to say a heartfelt "Thank you", very much appreciated.

 

There was a good turn-out for Roger's funeral. Nine motorcycles braved the cold and followed the hearse. I know this was much appreciated Roger's family. A good number of VMCC members attended not only from the Bedforshire section but also from further afield.

To quote from February's Section Notes:
"Roger was a real club stalwart — responsible for instigating the midweek runs and lunches and, of course, the very popular Arthur King Memorial Run. I'm pleased to report that it will go ahead this year as planned, courtesy of Roger's son and daughter."
