West Wessex

WEST WESSEX GROUP, THE MOTOR CARAVANNERS’ CLUB


Minutes of MEMBERS MEETING following 44th  ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING


SUNDAY 28th OCTOBER 2018 at CHRISTCHURCH JUNIOR SCHOOL


  1. The Chairman, Peter Collins, opened the meeting at 10.50am
  2. Two nominations have been received so far for the next Charity of the Year (1st Aug 2019 – 31st July 2020) They are:

    a) Lewis-Manning Hospice, proposed by Mike Humphreys, seconded by Maria Pond.

   b)  SERV Wessex, proposed by Gill Horder, seconded by Dave McCaughey,  supported by Kat        Gallagher.

Information about both Charities had been circulated. The Chairman asked for any nominations from the floor. There were none. A vote by show of hands was taken and SERV Wessex was chosen by majority.

      3    The Chairman requested a discussion about Rally Plaques. He gave three reasons for discontinuing             them:

                      a)  It involved a lot of work for the Secretary

                     b). We ought to think of unnecessary use of plastic

                     c)  Cost.

He proposed that we stop and, following a show of hands, it was agreed that we would finish up those that we had, but not buy any more.

4    Maurice Brooks from the Council of Management had asked to address the floor. After introducing himself, he drew our attention to the National Rally 2019, the new price- structuring, the pre-National at Banham Zoo and post-National at Hunstanton. These need to be well supported otherwise future Nationals will be in jeopardy, including a future 60th Anniversary National at Malvern in 2021. His second matter concerned the effect of new Data Privacy regulations (GDPR) which will be affecting the Club as it is a limited company. He pointed out that members will be given a chance to opt out of the Club holding any information about them, which would result in us not receiving Magazines or emails and that Group Secretaries would no longer have contact details for their Group members. Members who don’t opt out would be deemed to be in and could continue as before. He asked that we think carefully about this when the time comes.

      5    Jerry Dain proposed a vote of thanks to the Committee and Helpers for all their hard work throughout             this  past year, and this received a round of applause.

  1. Linda Rowberry read out a message from Peter and Maria Pond, thanking the Group members and Committee for their generous support of our previous Charity PCaSO.


There being no further business, the meeting was closed at 11.20am.


Many thanks to Ann Curwain and Maggie Mills for the refreshments during the Interval.
