This Year we are recognising the long service of Lorraine Brown ------20 Years

Lorraine Brown is being presented with her certificate by Group Chairman, Noel Davies.

Lorraine joined West Pennine Group in 1996, taking her Advanced Car Test in

January 1997 with Examiner Chris Slater. During the time Lorraine was preparing for

the Test as an Associate (and she never missed a week) she was supported by a

number of Observers. Amongst those Observers David Grey, Alison Ashworth, Janet

Boardman, Dave Cannon and Colin Watt are still West Pennine members. Eric

Ridgway did Lorraine’s Assessment and recommended that she was ready for Test.

Lorraine’s sterling work with the Committee has to be celebrated again tonight. She

was Minutes Secretary until 2000 when she became Group Secretary at a particularly

difficult time in the Group’s history. Lorraine stepped down from the Committee in

February 2008 after 8 years as Honorary Secretary.

Following the untimely loss of Allan Thorne in 2004, Lorraine was one of four new

Trustees to be appointed. This is a valued position which is still held by Lorraine

today.

Well done and thank you Lorraine.

The Allan Thorne Trophy Award Winner 2017

Noel Davies

This Award is presented annually to the member who receives the most nominations

for an outstanding contribution to the work of the West Pennine Group. The winner is

a member who goes over and above the recognised work required for the position

held and indeed the member who goes that extra mile.

This year, 2017, West Pennine Chairman Noel Davies has received the Award for an

unprecedented third time. This is a truly remarkable achievement and well deserved.

You can see Noel here, receiving the Award from Kath Thorne who travels into

Oldham each year to make the presentation.

Driving while using a mobile phone.

 

IAM Surety adopts a zero tolerance policy towards penalty points for mobile phone usage whilst driving

 

The risk of using mobile phones while driving has been very prominent in the media recently, following the tragic quadruple fatality caused by an HGV driver using a phone at the wheel, From this point forward our insurer, IAM Surety, will be unable to offer our exclusive ‘members only’ insurance scheme to any members who obtain points for using a phone while driving. This will be a permanent exclusion. We support this positive step towards making using a mobile phone while driving socially unacceptable. 

 

IAM Surety is the insurance that is available to IAM RoadSmart members.
