Chairmans Column

Keeping Up With The Morgans
By Colin Thornton (Chairman)

This column isn’t the one I had imagined I would be writing as your newly elected Chairman but then things are very far from “normal” just now. Before I address the biggest issue facing us all right now I must thank those who have supported me along the way to this point, especially Jon Savage and Peter Chapman. The former has provided progressive leadership to the club during his tenure as Chairman whilst the latter has served the club for 8 years guiding it through some challenging times in the calm and thoughtful manner that is his hallmark. Peter was invariably accompanied by Michele his wife at club events who I would also like to thank for her support and positive outlook on all things.

Thank you also to all the club officers who stood for re-election at the AGM and to Paul Leggett who felt unable to continue in his role as Regalia secretary for another two years. Paul has done a fantastic job for the club and he has agreed to continue for a short while until we find an alternative solution for Regalia. I would also like to thank Michele Jarvis for taking on the important  role of Safeguarding officer and Martin Rickerd who has stepped up to become our new Vice Chair. This is a worrying time for all of us and I can only hope that you, your families and loved ones remain safe and well.  The Morgan community, not just our UK members but dealers, parts suppliers and affiliate clubs all around the world and indeed MMC and its workforce are facing uncertain and challenging times. My experience of Morgan owners and those that work for and with the company is that they are a resourceful and pragmatic bunch, this will stand us all in good stead as we chart a path through the difficult weeks and months ahead. 

Talking of pragmatism, as you probably already know we have had to postpone Mogfest which was due to take place in June, but the good news is we have managed to secure a date at the same venues for September 25/26th later this year. SCCT our travel partners have done a great job in managing to switch the date and I do hope if you have not already made a booking we might tempt you to join us and celebrate what will hopefully be the conclusion to this present state of affairs. Take Care and stay safe.
