PLs all note the following:
Health Warning: The below does not replace the official minutes but highlights some things we talked about which may interest to members generally.
Money: Club currently worth about £15k. Keith is, as usual, on top of the figures to the last penny.
Velodrome trip to Newport fixed for next year some time in March at the more civilised time of 11am. Watch out for it. Hopefully i will make it this time.
The fish & chip ride is coming up, see diary.
Membership: Currently over 130
Leisure Rides: No news except that we have agreed points will be available to those who do the Cycle 4 Cynthia ride. Please liaise with craig. (Also but i know there are moves afoot to suggest a Saturday ride of min 16 mph and a cafe stop which i am all for).
TTs going fine. We agreed to hold the open event once again in March. This is a weekend affair needing marshals on both days. The rule have now been changed so that helping with this event (or any other club event) will count toward your quota of duties for the season so here is a chance to get it out of the way before next year’s blazing summer arrives (and not have to ride on a cold March morning).
Web Site: No news: all working well.
Uniforms: No Discussion.
General: A few Penny Farthings will be competing in a hillclimb into on the gated road into Adstone on Sunday 7 September and doing some other riding and drinking over the weekend. All are most welcome. I will post something up when we know what we are doing.
I'm the new curate at St Lawerance, Towcester and I wondered if any of your member might be interested in information or taking part in an annual event organised by Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust.

In addition, there is the opportunity to visit and admire some of the wonderful Christian buildings in the County.
People of any age can take part as you can choose your own route, according to how many churches you wish to visit on the day. Most of the churches in the County will be open from 10.00 - 18.00, although there some that have to

Those of you who shop in Waitrose will know that they sponsor community projects via their green token scheme. During August the A5 Rangers Go Ride sessions will be one of the causes chosen in Towcester. Please encourage all your friends and relatives to put their tokens in the A5 Rangers CC box when they shop. We will keep you informed of how it goes. Thank You.
