Chairmen Chris Faircliffe  
Vice Chair Tommy Freimuth  
Secretary Ian Pratt


With the retirement of our Chair, Hugh Davies, at the 2018 AGM, Nick Rout and Ian Skelton stepped into the breach as Chair and Vice Chair to help us. Our thanks go to them for assisting us in carrying on. Under their leadership, we ran a Range Day at Epperstone and one at Calton Moor.

These proved popular with members. We intend to do the same this year. At our 2019 AGM Mr Chris Faircliffe was appointed Chair with Tommy Freimuth supporting as Vice Chair. With the support of the membership, the committee has agreed to support some local shows to encourage new members. We look forward to the future with our new Chair and Vice Chair's leadership taking us on through the next year.
