NW Report February-March 2013
I attended the Board meeting, minutes at
I attended the MAG NC meeting, minutes on www.mag-uk.org
This event was well attended once again. The agenda included a marshalled ride from the meeting point at the Charles Napier to Blackburn Cathedral for a concise service conducted by Red Rose MAG Rep, Bill Green and Bishop Michael. Then it was back to the Napier for drinks and food.
The RSBS initiative has collated sufficient funding to carry on operations around the NW region with new promotional material being produced.
A group of us from the Blackpool Area travelled to
Due to my injuries, I was not able to run the MAG stand at this event, but thankfully Neil Stephenson was able to stand in and we had a presence at this show. Volunteers from the NW were on hand to help Neil, and from all reports, it was a good show.
As mentioned earlier in the report I have not been able to get about as much as I would have liked to over the past few months, but I should soon be back on my feet again. I have been busy working on the NW web-site and caretaking the main MAG web-site to help out at Central. I have also been selling the Official MAG 40th Patches on-line and have made over £100 profit to date over the last few weeks! I have managed to get out to a few local meetings thanks to friends running me about.
Manchester MAG has a bike show coming up soon at their meeting pub, The Station, which I am hoping to help out at with the MAG stand. Blackpool MAG seems to have most things sorted out for the “Big Birthday Bash” and we have offers of help from all the other MAG groups from the NW and Cumbria plus a few of the local MCCs.
