I have just got back from 10 days in USA to find over 90 emails, and 10+ phone messages all relating to enquiries about bikes and their numbers. Some I have managed to answer whilst been away, but the rest there will be a delay as I go through them all. If you have sent me something and don't get an answer within the next few days, then contact me again as some enquiries may get lost as I go through the backlog.

That'll teach you to go away Simon.

I went over to the Isle of Man early on Monday morning and came back on Wednesday night.

In three days, my e-mail had collected over 30 messages relating to the VOC.

It seems to me that we, the majority, have little concept regarding the outstanding degree of commitment the VOC Exec volunteers take-on, in order to provide us with VOC services. I, for one, remain eternally grateful for their commitment.

Here here. Peter Having been both a lowly serf (keeping the Mutual Help Scheme as it was years ago ) and on the Exec as Treasurer, for a year it is really time consuming. Fortunately it also provides considerable satisfaction. Thanks again to ALL volunteers
