Please note that in future the General Meetings will be on the FOURTH Tuesday of the month, not the last.

At the January meeting it was announced that the Committee wished to change the start of the membership year from July 1st to April 1st starting this year and hence, to charge a reduced fee for next year.
One of our members has objected to the fee proposed, so the Committee are obliged to call a Special General Meeting at the start of the March 28th meeting to discuss and vote on the proposal.
For full details see here

Burton Engineering Society have arranged a visit to JCB on the evening of Thurs March 30th for a presentation of their newest excavator.
