Message from Lynne Munro KHVC Chairperson

 
 
Hello to KHVC members 

I trust this finds you safe and well and you are looking forward to getting your cars back on the road again very soon, I know Alan and I are.

Many of us will have had our first Coronavirus vaccine, and possibly have a date for the second. The Coronavirus Road Map shown below is looking more positive for our future, so I don’t think it will be too long before we can all meet up again face to face.  We’ve already put some activities back on the calendar.

As you know, our 2020 Annual General Meeting was cancelled due to the virus. I took over from Karyn as Chairperson in April 2020. Not a great start to my term of office but things can only get better.

The Committee held a meeting earlier this month with the help of Zoom, and as it went so well, I’m pleased to let you know that the 2021 AGM which is scheduled for Sunday 18th April at 4pm will be delivered via Zoom. 

We would like as many members in attendance as possible, the Agenda and Previous Minutes are attached. The meeting time is limited to 40 minutes so the AGM will start promptly at 4pm.

Your attendance and input into the Clubs future activities is very important, and if you’d like to be on the committee or organise an event all the better, just let me know. 

If you’re not familiar with Zoom you can create a free account at https://zoom.us/  

Please let our Secretary Julie Norman know that you’d like to attend and she will send you an invite in due course. Julie’s contact details are vicandjulie@yahoo.co.uk 01547 560052.
