Every member receives a club newsletter every 2 weeks, (currently monthly due to Covid-19) You can choose either an emailed copy or a hard copy which will be available to collect at the meetings. The newsletter is a mixture of events for the diary, reports on events attended, restoration stories, members are encouraged to submit stories and we often read of racing reports or a touring adventure. Bikes or parts both for sale and wanted are free to advertise. .
For the retired "Veteran" members, there is a sub section of the Club at which members celebrate their birthdays, enjoy good food and good company, and reminisce with their contemporaries. This takes place on the Second and Last Thursday of each month, at around midday, at a suitable hostelry, the one currently in favour being the Red Lion at Lowick.

These are available, on loan, to the members at no charge other than for the nominal cost of consumables.
