We are a networking, social and discussion group having business or personal interest in transportation issues, methods and logistics.
The requirements for social distancing required to fight the Corvid-19 pandemic have required, not only the rescheduling of the March 2020 Annual Dinner but also the April and May 2020 monthly meetings. The Club's summer break means the next monthly meeting, the first of the 2020-21 season, would normally be on Wednesday 14th October 2020 at 6.00 pm for 6.45 pm. Obviously,whether this will take place will depend on what the social distancing rules are at that time and if the Mercure Hotel has re-opened for businesses after its forced temporary lock down. No final decision has yet been taken as to whether our planned trip to the City of Norwich Aviation Museum, scheduled for 8th July, and the rescheduled Annual Dinner on 14th August will take place. Like the monthly meetings these events are also dependant on the same prevailing social distancing circumstances and venue availability. We would expect to be reviewing the situating at the end of May.
A Fun Meeting.
What a great evening we had at the February’s Quiz Night. 14 members and 12 guests were formed into 4 teams who were presented with 5 rounds of 10 questions each, some on general knowledge the others quite quirky. At the end each of the participants in the winning and second place teams took their pick of a bottle of drink or chocolates. This is the second year we have held this event and we have little doubt it will be repeated next year. Our many thanks to Pio for creating and compering such a highly entertaining game.
President’s Message May 2020
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.
This virus is obviously extremely worrying and I really hope all the members and their families are keeping safe and coping with the current lock down restrictions that we find ourselves in. ..... click here to see the May 2020 Presidents Messaget
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.
