NATIONAL COUNCILLOR - CLIVE THOMPSON
Region 14 is the West Midlands, centred around Birmingham and comprises some 38 clubs from Rugeley in the North to Stourport-on-Severn in the South, Shrewsbury in the West to Lichfield the East.
We have been successful in opening a new Club in the Region, Lichfield Spires 41 Club, which has taken on the mantle of a very Active Club and is going from strength to strength. We are always seeking opportunities to open new Clubs as well support our existing membership.
Region 14 holds a number of events that are well attended by its constituent Clubs and their members, ranging from the Smethwick Cluster to the Regional Golf held in July. It is hoped to relaunch the Regional Talent Night in 2015.
I am very keen to find out from the members in Region 11 what other events you would like to see organising that extends our well founded principal of fellowship across the Region. Equally, what if any, support Clubs within the Region require to assist them to continue enjoying that fellowship.
There is a Deputy Councillors appointed in North East (Mike Edwards - Oakengates 41 Club) and two more in the wings (Tim prior and Andy Worrall - Active Black Country 41 Club). I am eager to find more other Deputies in the outer reaches of Region 14.
The Clubs and Members in Region 14 share a history of active engagement in the Community and working very hard supporting and promoting Round Table and the Round Table Family.
