Sunday, 8 November 2015 - 9:30am
Ride or Event Navigation
Eynsham Cricket Club Cassington Rd, Eynsham, Oxfordshire OX29 4LF
Our ride today starts as usual in Broad Street at 9.30. The AGM will take place at the coffee stop in Eynsham (refreshments are on us). As usual, you can choose to ride home after coffee, or continue on to lunch.
If you don’t wish to ride, there are plenty of car parking spaces at the cricket ground.
The draft agenda for our AGM may be downloaded from the Documents section on this page. A reminder that if you wish to propose any motions for discussion, you should email our secretary with the details by Friday 6 November: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember to bring your CTC membership card (or your membership number).
At the meeting, our Committee would welcome nominations for new members to help lead rides and organise events. Although Committee members do keep in touch via email and phone, there are usually only 3 formal meetings during the year, so please don’t be put off by the thought that membership of the Committee is a time-consuming commitment.
We had a good attendance in a new and what turned out to be an ideal meeting venue. As we were planning to continue the ride after the AGM, we decided not to open the bar on this occasion. Cakes and coffee (proper coffee with steamed frothed milk or a long black according to your taste) all supplied by local volunteers.
We welcomed our CTC Councillor, Graham Smith, to the meeting and heard reports on a variety of cycling activities over the past year. The Committee was pleased to report excellent progress. Details will appear in the minutes which will be available on this website in due course (under the About tab). But to give you a flavour now:
All CTC clubs (we are 1 of 107) receive a monthly list of the members in their area.
- Since April 2013, the number of members on the list from CTC Head Office has grown from 905 to 942, that is, an increase of 4%.
- During the same period, the number of people visiting our website to sign up to our mailing list has grown from 147 to 253, that is, an increase of 72%. Our 72%, against a national background of just 4%.
- Of our 10 most regular riders, 5 are women (the national trend is less than one third).
It’s fair to say that we have bucked more than one trend. Our thanks must go to all ride with us and, of course, to those who attended and helped organise the meeting.
