November event report:

It was pleasing, given the current levels of Corvid transmission that 16 members felt the and arrangement in place  situation made it safe enough to attend the November monthly dinner and bring along 3 guests. Brian Heard’s address on his time as a Forensic Science Officer in the Met. Police was not only full of anecdotes from his experiences, and some of the crimes he worked on, but also put over in an amusing, very enjoyable way. He also spent time working for the Hong Kong police and offered to come back to give us another talk on his work on Triad crimes should we be interested. If you were at this meeting and would like to hear from Brian again please let Nick Barret know

 President’s Message May 2021

he 2020/21 season has been a very strange one. We have been unable to meet as a club face to face which is very disappointing as a lot of hard work goes in to planning the monthly meetings and the Christmas and Annual dinners which all had to be cancelled. Thankfully, the club has not been affected financially and the finances remain in a good place..

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.
