Thursday 6th April 2023 at 8.00pm
Our AGM has been held with just sufficient members for a quorum.
The Chairman gave a brief report on another successful year of events and other activities, while the Treasurer was able to confirm that in general all was well with the financial affairs of the Club.
The President was pleased to present the Silver Badge for 2022 to Ian Hayward (already a Gold Badge holder) for his enthusiastic service at Club events over decades, but most particularly in the last few years. A very experience trials rider, Ian has taken part in enduro and other off-road disciplines, and is also a keen road rider with a great interest in vintage Sunbeams.
Marking more competition success for the Club, Guy Chandler and Simon Beken were also presented with their FIM ISDE Silver Medals for their fine performances on behalf of Witley in the 2022 ISDE in France.
You can meet the new Committee here...

At the 2022 Witley and District MCC AGM, outgoing Vice Chairman Dave Mair was pleased to award the coveted ‘Silver Badge’ to Aaron Smith.
Born into our Club, Aaron has marshalled, taught, and officiated at many Witley MCC events over the years. In particular, he’s been Clerk of the Course for a number of Boxing Day Enduros at Four Marks and Ashdown Farm, together with an edition of the Witley Classic at Warren Heath.
Starting in schoolboy trials, his riding experience grew to see him represent our club at the International Six Day Enduro, and European Enduro Championship Rounds as part of the ACU Under-23 squad.
The Silver Badge has been awarded once a year since the 1930s to a club member who has served the club exceptionally.
