Virtual Gateway Cycling AGM – The Results

To all Gateway Cycling  members
From Phil Baker , General Secretary
Thanks to all that logged on to the club site, read the Financial report and proposed Social Media statement, seconded a committee and /or commented on the process. There were 34 who replied.
You took part in the first Gateway Cycling Club Virtual AGM and made it a success. As a result of your participation the meeting was quorate so the committee members can now serve until the next AGM in 2021 which will hopefully revert to the more conventional format. In these rather uncertain times, we assume this will satisfy the legal requirements.
Having used the website for this process I will endeavour to post more on here in the future.
Despite the restrictions during lock down it has been good to see so many members making use of the quieter roads. Either in person or on WhatsApp. Even better is to see more cyclists in general; families, couples and wobbly newcomers. I’ve had a couple of enquiries already from new people asking how they can join once we are riding as a club again. I asked a bloke that I met on the top of Old Church Hill if he was in a cycling club and he shouted, “Hole! Car! Hole” and shook his head.  Club membership obviously isn’t for everyone.

    Many thanks to all whose efforts have achieved this successful outcome for the club.I am sure the founding fathers of the club would be proud of the way the present incumbents have kept the club going in these uncertain times ,as am I.A roughly 33% turnout I suppose is not too bad , I hope the other two thirds now realise that clubs dont run themselves and are grateful to those stalwarts who went the extra mile on their behalf.
