Dave Lewis RIP

Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere. I have just heard that David Lewis - brilliant Audax rider and organiser, campaigner and all round good bloke has passed away. I didn't even know he was ill so this was quite a shock. When I lived in Cardiff (now 12 years ago) Dave was everywhere, chairing th...

Re: Off-road cycling Swinley Forest

I live about 5 miles away and I ride there regularly. Swinley is regarded as one of the top MTB sites in the South East. I take groups there of all abilities from children to trail centre regulars. But - and its a big but - get yourself a local guide if you haven't done so already, it is a complete ...

Re: Charity Commission says CTC can be a charity

Hello Gaz The requirement in company law is that the papers have to be out 21 days before a meeting. It is then down to a company's internal documents to decide any further detail. So CTC's Standing orders for general meetings say: The Agenda shall be printed in full in the issue of the Club Magazin...

Re: Charity Commission says CTC can be a charity

Motions from members have a deadline, not from the Council, the papers will be out on time.

Nothing else has changed - the proposal to the AGM recommended by the Commission will suggest that the Articles and the Powers have just be re-ordered to separate them.

Charity Commission says CTC can be a charity

Following a review of CTC’s application to become a charity in England and Wales, the Charity Commission has now accepted that the work of CTC is charitable, but has recommended that we complete a new application reflecting more modern wording of our Objects. Approval of this wording by the 2012 CTC...

Re: CTC Tourist Competition 2012.

Its pretty straightforward Gaz, and definately not related to charitable status. Member groups told us in no uncertain terms that some old MG policies didn't work for many of them, mainly because it was too cumbersome to create new groups and that many members like to be part of multiple activities ...

Re: Magazine Survey.

The issue of a price on the mag cover is something to do with whether we have to assume VAT is part of your membership fee - and I can never remember what. Its one of those subjects where I am just so grateful that someone else does the detail, but I know it has to be there. We haven't had a subscri...

Re: Magazine Survey.

Sorry Mick if I was unclear. To analyse this sort of survey data it is worth collecting what we might broadly call standard data, and to track change we need it to be compatible with past surveys. Having done this sort of thing many times I can assure you that cross referencing to databases is often...

Re: Magazine Survey.

Thank you for these comments which have been brought to my attention. The survey was created, paid for and will be analysed by our magazine publishers at no cost to CTC. This is as far as I know their tried and tested approach for assessing readership responses and most surveys of this nature will c...

Re: CTC Charity Application Rejected

I apologise that I posted on this thread somewhat in haste earlier in the week when I know I would not be able to return to the discussion for several days. Rereading the post I recognise that I was a bit personal in my thoughts too, not what I should be doing. I’ll add some comments here to the ini...

I am sure that for certain readers of this forum there is little I can say that will change your perspective. However for those with a more open mind I would just comment that Greg got his report from the Council meeting that took place last Saturday. That’s a meeting any member can attend, but by a...
