4/3/15  Our Spares Secretary, Rod Smith won the Hagerty insurance sponsored "Unsung Club Hero" award at the Club Expo event at Gaydon last Saturday, beating (we think) over 120 other entrants!!!! Many thanks to all that nominated and voted for him.  Unfortunately Rod couldn't be there, so we kept it quiet and arranged for club founder member, Pete Pascoe to make a second presentation at the Essex branch pub meet yesterday.  It's fair to say Rod was quite taken back by it all.  Read the full story in the forthcoming April edition of our magazine. "The Indicator".
