News

The April meeting was well attended . The guest speaker, Paddy Anstey from the Mid Norfolk Railway, who's talk “Making Tracks Through Mid Norfolk”was warmly welcomed. Paddy dealt with the history and development of the railway, from its inception in the mid-1800s as a freight only carrier, to the present day as a highly successful heritage line running between Wymondham and Dereham. http://www.mnr.org.uk/index.php?route=common/home

The Club was pleased to make a donation to the MNR as a gesture of thanks for Paddy’s informative and interesting talk.

 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.
