Midland Centre Regalia Supplier
Ready to order that new item of summer clothing, or a new hat to protect your head from the sun?
The Midland Centre has joined with Kimber House and several other CRBs in appointing Top Signs, based in Hexham, Northumberland, as our 'regalia' supplier.
They have an excellent range of clothing items, and you can order a number of different Club logos, be it to show allegiance to your Centre or to your Register, and prices are very reasonable. If you ask them nicely, they may even be able to 'customise' your clothing for you.
So before you go off and purchase your clothing from another Club or website, take look at what we have to offer. Just click on the 'Regalia' button in the left-hand menu, and follow the links from there.
Members' Contact Details
Are your personal details correct at Kimber House?
It cannot have escaped most peoples notice that much more correspondence and general communication in business is being conducted via the medium of websites and electronic mail, and this will only increase in the future. Clearly, the use of email makes it easier, faster and (as importantly) cheaper for clubs like the MGCC to communicate with its members. However, this can only be successful if members' details at Kimber House are accurate and up-to-date. In the recent past, the Midland Centre Committee has undertaken its own checks on personal records, and has uncovered numerous inaccuracies, particularly with email addresses; for example, full-stops in the wrong place, spaces between characters where there should be none, hyphens instead of underscores, etc., etc. On that basis, the Committee would recommend that all Midland Centre members check their own personal details with Kimber House to ensure that their records are accurate, especially any email addresses. Just as importantly, please don't forget to notify Kimber House if any personal contact details change, for example if there is a change in internet service provider which entails a new email address.
Are you in the correct Centre?
We are finding that several MGCC members who should have been allocated to the Midland Centre have actually been placed in another Centre, such as the South-West or Anglia. Members are free to ask to be allocated to a specific Centre if they so wish; however, some may not be aware that they are currently in the wrong one. If you are unsure, and wish to ensure that you are in the Midland Centre, please contact Kimber House and ask them to verify this for you.
For further assistance, please contact Membership Secretary Liz Allsworth on 01235 849734 or via email - firstname.lastname@example.org
As some of you may know, the MGCC Midland Centre organises four principal sporting events during the year – two Trials and two Sprints. The Spring Trial is held at Lintridge Farm, near Ledbury, and the Autumn Trial is held at Burton Dassett Country Park, near Gaydon, Warwicks. Both the Spring Sprint and the Summer Sprint are held at Curborough, near Lichfield.
For all these events, we always need the help of volunteer marshals. Marshalling is not an onerous task (as long as the weather is good!), and many people who volunteer find that they enjoy the event(s) and return in the future.
For those of you who are more local to the event locations, and have people in your groups who might be interested in assisting at any of these events, please ask them to contact the Midland Centre's Chief Marshal, Simon Morris, on - email@example.com
Without the help of volunteers, these and other similar events cannot take place, so please give it some thought.
Please see our 'Calendar of Events' and the 'General Information' pages for more information on the year's events or to read previous news items. Don't forget to let us have details of any MG-related events you would like to have displayed on this site.
