Annual Dinner: What a great Success.

Not knowing how many members and guests would be attending because of Covid19 concerns, it was extremely pleasing that 82 attended on the night. Unfortunately, the Mayor and his Consort went down with the virus on the day before and were unable to join us.  The food was declared excellent.  Adger Brown, the evening’s after-dinner entertainer had everyone in stitches throughout his performance.

This year we held the event in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and played Heads and Tails, won by Matthew Bunn, one of the President’s guests, to raise funds for this service which is solely self funded through donations. At the end of the evening the President Joe Howard handed over a cheque for £1000 to Roy Swain, an EAAA volunteer who we were pleased could join us o the night.

We are very grateful  to H J Boswell, Redline MOT & Service, Ford & Slater DAD and J Medler Haulage without whose generous sponsorship the event would not have been viable.

 President’s Message May 2021

The 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.
