CHAIRMANS WELCOME : The Club had enjoyed a mixed year. There had been limited success on the track, with the club achieving the Northern Junior League title win. The highlight of the season had been the signing of the two Polish riders, who in their brief spell with the club proved to be excellent, both on and off the track. Three successful grant applications had been made, resulting in the purchase of: a new cabin, 10 bikes and the training of two coaches arising from the National Lottery grant; future equipment items from the Community Chest grant; future promotional items from the AGMA grant. The Club continued to develop its facilities. However, he cited problems of lack of support from the Miners Welfare Club Committee, in particular members of the Cricket Section.

ACCEPTANCE OF 2001 MINUTES : These were accepted.

MATTERS ARISING : It was noted that most items planned under the Future Activities section were carried out, whereas those listed under the Any Other Business section were not. Thanks were expressed to the Clubs sponsors and to the Website manager.
