AGM MINUTES:
Accounts were sent out to all members in the course of the week preceding the AGM showing a surplus of £40.25. Drinks paid for by the club on the night came to £29.80. Thanks go to Barry and Fran for the table at the Duke.
Attendees on Jan. 8: Vanessa, Chris, Kev, Ken, Robin, Dom, Paul, Richard, Nigel.
Apologies from Liz, Les, Noel, David, Tim, Roger, Darren
Subs (£10) received from Vanessa, Chris, Kev, Ken, Robin, Dom, Paul, Richard, Nigel and Tim.
Subs essentially cover club membership of CTC and website charges. Club CTC membership results in WW club members having to pay only £16 for Associate CTC membership with third-party liability insurance cover of £1 million and a 12% discount from Wiggle.

Plans for 2015
Generally to link up more with other clubs in the locality – Longstanton Wheelers and Histon and Impington Bicycle Club in particular. Other possibles are Rampton and Swavesey. We have now made good contact with the first two, having ridden together in a peloton of 14 on a 40 mile route on Sunday Jan. 11.

Paul also to put an article in Willingham News advertising our activities. One of the focuses to be on encouraging younger riders from Willingham to initially ride with these larger groups offering a wider age mix.

We agreed that we need to plan further ahead for more interesting Sunday rides and upcoming beer festivals. Some Sundays to be given over to more casual/social rides with a coffee break, possibly in conjunction with the CTC in Cambridge.

Each member is asked to be proactive on the planning side so that we have a few ideas flowing in week by week.

Calendar below. Still to be decided: Trip to Les Houches, France. Possible months May or September – more consultation with Liz and Les required. Trip to Isle of Man: Ken has already made some progress. Nigel to keep us informed of Sky Rides and H4H in June.
