Vacancies

Vacancies Having just seen your profile on LinkedIn I am pleased to be able to offer you a raft of exciting job opportunities which are going to become vacant in the coming days. I am therefore inviting you for interview on Friday 8th. April at 7:30 pm. at Orsett Churches Centre. It might well be, on the day, that you decide these are not for you but I’d still implore you to come along if only for the excellent networking opportunities that the event will provide. Meeting up with the many like-minded people expected, might also result in fewer Sundays at the golf course. We see a brighter future ahead. With warmer days, more sunlight hours and the abolition of government restrictions we would also recommend investing in tea shops, pubs and bike … Read entire article »

AGM 2022

AGM 2022 Winter and Omicron fade slowly as the days lengthen. Daffodils respond and hasten that feeling of Spring and the Great Re-awakening. April! Is there a better time to have the AGM? Sunday rides hopefully revitalised by then and perhaps a Sportive or two. What an opportunity to make your mark on the club. Come along on Friday April 8th. Put yourself forward as Chairman/ Chairwoman, Secretary or Kit Koordinator (not sure that’s the official name). If not, still come along to vote me out for the second time in a year. Otherwise I might end up like Putin. Watch out for polonium in the teapot. Or just come along to catch up and talk sprockets. If you haven’t got around to paying your subs yet, bring them along so you … Read entire article »
