Hi all,

So the AGM & Board Meetings have happened & Mike Fear (who has always been helped by Chris) & Phyllis & I have stepped own from our Honorary  posts of Permit Secretary, Gazette Editor & Assistant Secretary respectively. Both teams of us were delighted to be presented with a Flower Display & we also had a Voucher for afternoon tea at the Royal Crescent Hotel in Bath – a very swanky place I think. Mike & Chris’s envelope looked the same so I think they too will have a lovely afternoon out.

I have to say it was a complete & delightful surprise. Thank you “WessexACU” !

A couple of things emerged during the Board Meeting that you may need to know.

There will be a transitional period while Mike & Andy Scrivens, the new Permit Secretary, complete the handover. So up to & until 1st March permit Applications should continue to go to Mike & after that they should all go to  Andy Scrivens: email him at

The Centre website has been given a new look & a quick demo given & it’s ready to go. I anticipated that the website would have changed by now, but as it isn’t I’ve no idea how you can see it!    When Gareth lets me know I’ll tell you!!

Bye for now: Frank




Centre AGM: Warmley Community Centre Tomorrow. Results of yesterdays NSMSC Centre Champ Time Trial & Regs & Entry Forms for NSMSC’s Wynnes Trophy T/trial on 25th February.

Hello all,

Here are a few things to update you with:

The Terry Bunn Centre Champs Time Trial results are here, NSMSC Terry Bunn Centre Champs T:Trial results 040218 & Jerry Walters reports:

Evening Frank, one last posting before you retire!

Results of yesterday’s North Somerset Club Terry Bunn Trophy Time Trial attached for the website. This was the opening round of the 2018 Wessex Centre Time Trial championship and attracted a near capacity entry to Scars Wood, Lulsgate.

The course was in prime condition following saturday’s rain and Andy Frost carried on where he left off, easily winning the Trials class and taking the overall premier on just 9 marks. Pete King was a comfortable second in the Trials class on 25, with Paul Manning third on 34.

Jason Hamblin is one of many Time Trial riders who have recently switched to KTM Freerides, and he put his cards on the table by ‘cleaning up’ in the Non Trials class and taking the overall runner up spot on 23 marks. Tom Smith grabbed second in the class on 39 with Andy Scrivens third on 63.

Regs and entry form also attached for North Somerset Club’s next Time Trial – the Wynnes Trophy at Malthouse Farm, Chelwood on 25th February.

Thanks for publicising all our events on the website in recent years and enjoy your time off!

Best regards

The Regs for the Wynnes Trophy Time Trial Jerry mentions are here: NSMSC Wynnes Trophy T:trial Regs & Entry Form for 28:02:18

I hadn’t posted the latest Centre Trials Championship Points Table, that Pete Dury had collated previously, as with only one Round so far I reckoned that you would all have good idea of who was where? So here you then: 2018 Wessex Centre Trials Champ Tables as at 050218

Don’t forget the Centre AGM will be held at 20:00hrs at Warmley Community Centre tomorrow, the 6th February. Why not be there & quiz the Board? Tell us what we’ve got wrong (or right) for you during the year. Your ideas are important.

That’s it for the moment:  Frank
