Details of the activities of the Worldwide International MCC are available from Mr Ray Barton. It is hoped that a group formed from this club will avail themselves of the many benefits of this admirable club.

Mr Barry Stevens has been forced to resign as secretary of the club owing to his transfer to Sheffield. We wish him success in his new position and hope to see him on our trips to the north.

The Cronin Passenger Insurance Bill must surely be the ugliest weapon we motorcyclists have faced in our relatively short history. The bill, whilst setting out to protect the interests of passengers, if passed will cripple motorcyclists and the industry financially. What surprises me is the fact that many people seem to be blissfully unaware of either the existence of the bill, or at any rate, its bearing on our position.

Harry Lumley kept his son's papers long after he had moved away from home. After Harry passed away in June 2007, Geoff rediscovered the ancient Megaphone among his fathers effects and presented them to in his memory.
