I’ve been a member for over 20 years and despite living in Norfolk at the time was at the first Ely meeting. I’ve held a number of committee positions but not for the last couple of years. My primary reason for being a member is the social side (we are a friendly  bunch) so I decided to stand as Social Sec this year, as now we have some keen new members who have taken on other roles. I am keen to reintroduce regular trips following a fairly quiet couple of years. If you have any suggestions for future trips just contact me and I will try and accommodate them.
