News

Both the Annual General Meeting and the evening meal on Wednesday 8th May, were very well attended.  The names of the members elected to form the Committee for the 2019/20 season can be found on the "Info & Newsletters" page.  Following  the excellent meal we received the talk from the guest speaker, Clive Stevens entitled “The “American Occupation of East Anglia 1942 to 1945.

As a young boy living in Eye, Clive became interested in the planes, operations and history of what was then the United States Army Air Corp Eighth Airforce and has gone on to be an expert on the subject as well as the owner and restorer of veteran military vehicles.

His excellent presentation, well presented and backed up with a great many slide pictures taken at the time, evoked many memories from those present. Particularly, those who were brought up in and around South Norfolk and Suffolk where many of the 500 American bases were sited or who are interested in military history.

 President’s Message

Progress can be perceived in many organisations and institutions and the Norwich Traffic Club is no exception. In fact it has seen exceptional forward change since its inception in 1933. Much of this is allied to the development of transport in its many forms, but as a club we are not bound to merely worship the motor car.

We are committed to social and business aims which embrace all forms of transport – by land, sea and air.....   click here to see the May 2018 Presidents Report

 

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 100 members from all aspects of the Transport Industry, who meet monthly for informal Luncheons 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.
