Section Charity Fund
Over the past couple of years we’ve started taking donations at each event as means of raising funds for the Section’s chosen charity. The collection of any funds is entirely voluntary and won’t be prohibitive at around a £1 an event. The final donation approved at the AGM was £294 paid to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance for 2019.
It's that time of year again!
Don't forget to renew your Club membership to continue receiving all the benefits and friendship from the Southern Section

With no end to the lock down in sight, we’re still looking for ways to relieve the boredom. Here, at Southern Section virtual HQ, we’ve come up with our virtual pub meets – chats with many of your usual Club mates via the wonder of the interweb. These are being co-ordinated by Erica and simply require the free downloading of the Zoom app and logging on to the Club meeting coordinates a for a 40 minute session. The choice of accompanying beverage is only limited by the contents of drinks cabinet/fridge. Start time 20.00 hours on your usual Club natter night.
We have also tried the Virtual Pub Quiz. This is broadcast live on The YouTube Channel starting at 20.15 on Thursdays. Also free to join, simply log onto YouTube, pen and paper in hand, and follow Jay, the Quizmaster. For those who joined on Thursday 30 April, you were part of a Guinness Wold Record for Online Pub Quiz attendance at 182,000 others! With 50 questions, short breaks, and answers, the progamme lasts about 1 hour and 20 minutes and we can follow it with another Zoom to discuss/commiserate our results.
When the lockdown is lifted you need to be prepared for a national shortage of sunglasses required to mask the shine from so many mega-clean bikes.
Remember these heady days - all together with a little liquid refreshment?
