Dear fellow members and friends
Well, thanks to Jenny for organising the Christmas social – it was a good and idea to have it at Hove Museum – even the shades of Fawlty Towers added to the fun. And, as Anne says (see her report) the food that was “on” was very good. The museum is well worth a visit – especially, I thought, for the early films of Brighton and Hove.
I trailed Jim’s message about next year’s subs in the last issue. I’m including it here, rather than in a “members only” message in the hope that more people on our mailing list who haven’t yet joined us might take the plunge. Why not pop a cheque in the post to Jim this week? With an application form if you’re not already a member. Anyway, here’s Jim’s message.
Subs for 2012 are due from 1 January. Please send a cheque for £7, payable to Brighton & Hove Clarion Cycling Club, to Jim Grozier, 92a Springfield Road, BN1 6DE. I would appreciate if you could send the money promptly, as it is much easier to deal with renewals in bulk than if there are “stragglers”, and I don’t have a lot of spare time these days to chase people up.
If you would prefer to pay by bank transfer, the sort code is 08-92-99 (Co-op Bank) and account number is 65377325. Bank Identification Code is CPBK GB22, and IBAN is GB76 CPBK 0892 9965 3773 25. But you had better check first with your bank to see if there is a charge, as that could make a bank transfer uneconomical.
I know several people are working on runs for the New Year – but so far we’ve only reached 8 Jan. – which may seem like a year away now, but isn’t! – as far as actual rides are concerned. As usual, all offers will be gratefully received. In the meantime Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
