[Part Two - hfcyclists business]
1 CHAIR'S REPORT
We have had a productive year. We have had meetings each month except August. We have had an excellent garden party in the summer.
We have been involved in the H&F festival by having two rides. We had rides during Bike Week to Richmond Park and to the Camden Bikefest followed by a barbecue on the river. There was also the breakfast laid on by LBHF as part of the bike to work week. We also contributed to the Don't choke H&F week. We have been involved in the planning of In Town Without my Car, aka Car Free Day, and had a presence at the event. We have been using a grant from the LBHF Education dept, and have received another for cycle training.
This year we have had extensive interactions with the LBHF council. These concern Shepherds Bush Green, Hammersmith Broadway, the Issues Document, ITWMC, cycle parking and Oybike. We have not always seen eye to eye, may have been bothersome, but we hope our contribution has been useful and for the good of cyclists and the people of H&F.
We have a useful and effective email group. We have a web site.
A great thanks to all who have helped us be effective and successful.
Things to develop include:
My apologies for once again not being able to attend in person, this is a combination of work commitments and a young family.
The main event from a money point of view was the acquisition of a printer. Our previous access to printing facilities was being removed and commercial access would have been prohibitive. We expect this purchase to pay for itself in a year or two.
We have also instituted refreshments which have proved to provide the group meetings with a more convivial environment.
Last year we put some of our own funds into a special events budget (to augment a grant received) which as we did not spend this money this year we have placed back into our normal budget so as to meet the cost of the printer. We grant money remains available for special events. We expect this grant money to be augmented soon by the addition of an additional grant to provide cycle training in schools. As this sum is not yet received I have not incorporated it into this years accounts. I have included it into the budget for 2003.
The treasurers report was accepted unanimously
