 News

What a Christmas Treat. There were 47 members and guests at the December meeting. We enjoyed a traditional meal (without the dreaded sprouts) of roast turkey and all the trimmings, Christmas pudding and mince pies.  A game of ‘Hoss or Gloss’ was played after coffee and £270 was collected in playing fees as a donation to the night’s chosen charity, the East Coast Truckers. In addition, personal donations from a few members present brought the total donation to nearly £600.

Toni Watkin-Burton, Vice Chairman of, the East Coast Truckers, gave us a light-hearted and informative talk on the history; the annual convoy and work of the charity in providing:

  • day trips for disabled and underprivileged children within East Anglia.
  • equipment for special schools, hospitals and children not funded by the NHS.
  • free holidays for the families of the children in their holiday homes on the North Norfolk coast.

 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.
