A number of questions were posed by the members to the committee, summarised as follows;

Q) Does the club have targets for building female membership?
A) No specific targets are set, we would like to be in line with the average percentage of female club members in British Cycling affiliated clubs. We are taking steps to build female membership, e.g. women only club rides.

Q) Can gloves be included as a branded item on future club kit orders?
A) The plan is to focus on one ‘special’ kit item per order as many of these smaller items require a minimum number per order, and require co-ordination from the Kit Officer

Q) Where is the club Hill Climb competition to be held in 2019?
A) The Hill Climb Competition is to be staged on Ulley Lane, Ulley, Rotherham on the 1st September 2019

Q) When did the club competitions finish?
A) Club jersey competitions ended at the end of September with winners to be announced at the forthcoming Christmas Party

Q) Is the club planning to work with any charities in the future?
A) We have partnered with Rotherham Hospice and will be holding fundraising events throughout 2019
