3. Minutes of the 2021 AGM

The minutes have been accepted as a true statement of the meeting held.

Proposer: Susie W, seconded: Andy F

4. Matters arising from these Minutes

No matters arising

5. Presentation of the Annual Report for meeting approval

David B presents the report which is accepted as a fair record of the activities.

Proposer: Martyn A, seconded: Andy F

6. Presentation of Financial Statement for meeting approval

Martyn A presented the year’s income and expenditure. The current balance on the account is just under £1096.08.

It was reported that David B and Martyn A had agreed (before this meeting) that we would not claim the £200 annual allocation from CUK Head Office since we had done nothing this past year.

There were no questions from the audience.

Financial statement approved: proposer Mike T, seconder Dave B.

7. Campaigning update

Martyn’s focus had been on The Saint’s Trail but he does not think he has anything to offer since the widely reported coverage, that the project has been greatly reduced in it’s proposals (4 trails together with a commuter route from St


Agnes to Truro) to the extent that only a small section of maybe 2 miles is likely to be built near Perranporth.

Dean Evans local ‘Cycle Advocacy Network’ (CAN) has done a lot of work in Falmouth and Penryn with the ‘20s plenty’ campaign.

Martyn is still in contact with the ‘Cycling activists network’ who can advise of any future developments.

8. Election of officers and committee

iii. Treasurer Martyn A

iv. Registration Officer David B

v. Safeguarding Andy F

vi. Publicity Officer Ann K

Additional officers (non mandatory)

David B Website

Ann WB Liskeard Ladies Group co-ordinator

Lynne B Honorary Auditor

Vacant role Looe area representative

Mike T St Austell representative

9. Other items

i. Ann WB asks how do the audience feel about continuing running CTC Cornwall as we are. Martyn A feels that providing we continue to do a few events and Andy his club rides it justifies the input. Andy F agrees. David B points out that providing what we do is sufficient to CUK Head Office then it matter little whether we are a Member group or an Affiliate group.

ii. Margaret A asks if there is any way of contacting CUK members in Cornwall. David B advises that CUK had set up a Member platform called Assemble but appears to have perhaps had problems with data protection law and, had as a consequence been shelved.

iii. Mike T asks that we have an informal meeting for ‘good ideas’ – located mid-Cornwall. Andy wants a Camel Trail ride then have a meeting. Watch this space!!

It was proposed to review the situation in 12 months time.

Close of meeting. Thanks given to the Committee for their work and the audience for their input.
