Section Constitution

Welcome to the VMCC's Bedfordshire Section website.

The section meets at the Memorial Hall, Shefford on the second Thursday in the month from 8pm on.

The premier event for the section is the Albert Brown run which is usually held in early July. See the Albert Brown run page.

 

Events

Many of you will already be aware of the advice issued by our Government regarding avoiding unnecessary social contact, and keeping away from pubs, clubs and restaurants, etc.

This advice has been reinforced by the Club's Board:

Against this background, the Board's position is as follows. For the duration:

  • Section meetings should be suspended;
  • the Club should not attend shows and suchlike;
  • runs that involve a substantial amount of on-the-day organisation, and thus contact between participants and people such as marshals, sign-on staff or caterers, should be postponed or cancelled;
  • formal or social runs may take place at the Section Committee's discretion, but should not include pre-run gatherings or stops at cafes, public houses or suchlike: if that is not practicable, the event should be postponed or cancelled.

This means that this week's lunch and all breakfast meets and club nights are cancelled until further notice.

The position with the midweek runs is under discussion.

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 turnout for Ron's Funeral.
Four motorcycles followed the sidecar hearse to the service.
Thanks to Richard and Martin for the photos.
