President’s Message May 2020
My second term as President has ended in extraordinary circumstances. Because of this it means I will continue as President for one more year before handing over to the Vice President Joe, Howard in May 2021. This seemed to be the most sensible way forward rather than handing over the baton at a time when the club is properly operating. click here to see full content of the President's May 2020 Message.

A Brief History of Norwich Traffic Club
The Norwich Traffic Club was born on 25th January 1933, the date of the preliminary meeting at Langfords Restaurant at which it was founded with 31 members.
The Club came into being at the time when transport problems were assuming greater importance than ever before, and there was a need for some common ground on which responsible managers could meet irrespective of the forms of transport in which they were engaged.
Today the Club boasts around 65 members, both Personal and Corporate, from all aspects of the Transport Industry, who meet monthly for informal donners and to debate and discuss important topics related to Transport today. The opportunity for business networking is also at the core of the Club’s activity and best practice and business improvement develops from these meetings.
