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.

 

The Boxing Day meeting attracted a fair number.
Despite the cold and damp a good show of motorcycles.
We seem to have made a suitably positive impression on the new Landlady for her to invite us back, perhaps as an evening event.
