Red Rose Bulletin - January 2018

Red Rose Bulletin - January 2018


Happy New Year everyone I hope you all enjoyed the festive season and are looking forward to the 2018 season of events.

The Red Rose year ended with the Christmas lunch at the Antrobus Arms on the 10th December which despite the seasonal snow was well attended although a number of members were unable to attend due to the weather conditions.

Plans are well underway for the New Year with the Red Rose AGM on the 14th January which will include details of many of the planned events for 2018 plus updates re Car Fest, review of last year events, 2017 Red Rose awards and committee elections, and the much awaited facebook draw. We also still have a few calendars' left for sale so if you haven't got your copy yet it's not too late!

As many of you will already be aware Bob Eccles will be standing down as Red Rose group leader, I am sure you would all agree he has done a sterling job over the years and I would like to say a huge thank you to him on behalf of everyone for all he has done for the club. Bob will continue in his role as a Regional Director and is also standing for election onto the events committee.
