I am grateful to Neil Lister for offering to assume the role of Road Secretary.
The Committee voted on his appointment at our meeting on Monday 25 September, in which we discussed a few areas within FCCC where we would like to make a few changes.
It is clear many of us would like to see a greater consistency of attendance at road rides and ride leading, so Neil has kindly offered to help the Club with this being his primary focus.
I’m hopeful several of you who already help lead rides for FCCC will continue to work with and help Neil in his new role going forward.
Neil has been a ride leader, riding mainly in the mid-pace group, so he is relatively well known within this area of the Club
I am confident his affable personality, dry sense of humour, plus his desire to get involved will be a useful contribution and addition to the Club.
Please join me in welcoming Neil to the Committee.
May I also take this opportunity to thank Gareth Davies for his contributions to the Committee and the Club during 2023, who is stepping down at this time. His work on gathering small portfolios of our weekly ride photos back in the spring being one item I would wish to particularly highlight. No doubt his passion for photography will be something we’ll see more of over time if his schedule permits.
