DAN-New-wr Durham Advanced Motorcyclists

Held their AGM at at Bowburn Hall Hotel on Tuesday 30th November 2010 at 1900hrs.

Despite the appalling weather there was a good ‘turnout’. The committee was duly elected with Brian Clements remaining as Chairman and Bill McCready as Secretary.

Treasurer Tony Seed ‘stood down’ after looking after the ‘books’ and the membership for a lot of years. Other notable names to ‘stand down’ this year were Group Training Officer – John Cudden, Webmaster – Peter Holley and one of the original founder members from 1995 and past chairman – Mike Cope.

These people have put a fantastic amount of time and effort into making DAM the successful group it is today. Their input has had a significant impact on Road Safety within County Durham & Darlington.

Many Thanks to you all, for your help & support over the years,  from the BikeWise ‘team’
