This Month's Topics

Moving Forward

This month the news from the Committee shows a number of the actions the Association is taking and being involved in on your behalf.  A preliminary meeting to set up a committee in the west will have taken place in February so hopefully that will take more actions forward.   There has been interest in the treasurer’s role so I hope to be introducing you to the new treasurer in the not too distant future. The road reps will be knocking on your doors over the next few months to collect subs.  These are still 2 for the year.

There is a new feature this month on independent restaurants in Billericay.  The plan is for this to be a piece every other month.  If you know of any restaurants you think are independent and worthy of a mention then please let us know the usual way .

The Club Connection is another club which may appeal more to the ladies.  Come on gents if you are a club chair, secretary or publicity officer and would like your club or group highlighted then please get in touch.

Please keep your letters coming for the letters page so we can signpost you to who may be able to help.

Copy Dates for "Resident"

If readers wish to advertise an event or have an article printed in the newsletter the item should be submitted to the Editor by the 15th of the month before publication:

Chris Wade

If an event is to be held before the 10th of the month then, to ensure circulation, the advertisement should be in the previous month's issue, e.g. an event taking place on the 3 May should be advertised in the April issue. Similarly if an event is scheduled for September then the advertisement should appear in the July issue.
