CAMC Covid-19 update

CAMC Update

England Covid-19 Lockdown

As you will probably be aware the UK Parliament voted to place England into a national lockdown, effective at 12:01 from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December* (*subject to change) to stop the spread of Covid-19.

The Club is advising that during this period there should be no rallies held in England.

Also, during this period it will not be appropriate for you to hold a physical AGM, and if you have an AGM planned during this time you should either delay it or hold it using virtual technology, where the latter would be the preferred option, as that will ensure that all circumstances are covered.

Rallies in Wales are permitted from Monday 9 November, but only for residents of Wales.

We hope that you will support the Club with this decision and understand that we are following the Government guidance and legislation.

Many thanks for your support.

MID ANGLIA AGM 2020

MID ANGLIA AGM 2020

I hope you’re all keeping well. I thought I’d give you all an update on our up and coming AGM.

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions it has been a complete nightmare to organise. We as a committee, have decided to go ahead with the meeting, but with only current committee members attending together with a set of tellers to independently watch over proceedings.

I will personally be hosting the junior committee meeting so no youngsters will be present. Then hosting our senior AGM. These will take place at the same time and venue as stated in our rally book. Due to limited amount of people being able to attend I believe this to be the best way to get the AGM done.

SO I’M SORRY PLEASE DON’T ATTEND! I would only have to send you away.

My secretary is working hard with the web designer and our Webmaster. What we hope to do this coming week is to put on our website a full copy of the AGM minutes from last year and AGM pack. You may then read through this and if you have any questions arising from this, you may submit them to our secretary. I will address the questions at the AGM which will be minuted and an email sent to you, with my response.

I hope this is all ok. This has been a very difficult year.

Please remember we are all Volunteers on the committee and some of us are running our own businesses through this difficult time. It is very challenging all round.

Keep safe and I hope to see you all soon.

I will keep you updated on the rally scene, but to be honest it’s not looking good for the Pre seasons, Super Bowl and Natter n Chatter. Who knows what’s going to happen. I will endeavour to keep you updated and informed the best I can.

Kind regards

Richard Laborne MA Chairman 2020 - 2021.
