Where applicable, members who are eligible for inclusion in club competitions, or have broken a club record, are obliged to make a claim by submitting results to the Recorder by 31st October each year. This applies to all disciplines for which awards are offered including time trial, road, track and cyclo cross.
Annual Prize Presentation Dinner
The annual prize presentation dinner is usually held on the third Saturday in January. As well as celebrating the achievements or our members, it is a social occasion and an ideal opportunity for new members or partners to meet and get to know each other in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.
The club is obliged to keep a record of all its members, and information such as name and contact details will be held on the club’s database for this purpose. Any member who objects to their details being held should let the Secretary know.
Protection of Children and Vulnerable Adults
The club has an obligation to comply with the basic provisions in the British Cycling Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy and British Cycling Safeguarding and Protecting Vulnerable Adults Policy, namely a duty of care to protect all children and vulnerable adults whilst participating in club activities.
It is the responsibility of every club member to report any concerns that he or she may have regarding the welfare of any child or vulnerable adult in the first instance to the Welfare Officer. If deemed necessary, the Welfare Officer will report separately to two members of the club committee who should normally be the Secretary and the Chairman. The club committee shall be responsible for any further action.
Annual General Meeting
All current members will be sent notification of the AGM which will normally be held at Stone Cross Memorial Hall on the first Monday of December. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend as an opportunity to share opinion on how the club is run and put forward ideas for future development.
The meeting will include the minutes of the previous AGM, reports from officers and election of officials and committee members for the year ahead. The agenda will also include any suggestions for change or proposals to amend general club rules, which will be discussed and voted on at the meeting. Please forward matters for inclusion to the Secretary in writing at least 21 days prior to the meeting. The agenda will be published and distributed to members 14 days prior to the meeting.
Committee meetings are usually held on the third Monday of January, April, July and October at Stone Cross Memorial Hall. The committee exists not only to manage and oversee the running of the club, but also to serve the club by ensuring the best interests of the members are met with representatives from each area of club and its activities. If you would like to propose matters for discussion please let the Secretary know.
