National Fellowship Officer


As Fellowship Officer I am responsible for the National Conference, the National Sporting Weekend, Regional Dinners, the National Golf Competition, the Classic Rally and the National Council Weekends, as well as any other activities we run including the annual Remembrance Day Service at the National Arboretum 41 Club Garden. I also look after our long distance path called the Millennium WayRegalia Sales and Member Benefits.

Regional Dinners

We have a very large number of dinners organised up and down the country each year, but we have selected the most popular as our Top 12 Regional Dinners. The series starts with the Wensum & Yare Forecast Night in January and closes with the Lamb at Leadenhall in the City of London in December. All events have their own character and traditions, but my favorite is The Red Rose Dinner. The National President will be attempting to attend all 12 and it will be appreciated if some contribution is made to his charity for the year. If you have a multi-club dinner to which National Officers can be invited, why not suggest we add yours to the list – there is nothing sacred about the number “12”!. 

National Golf Competition

We encourage every Region to organise a Regional Golf Competition. It is a great activity for all our golfers to get involved. Usually it is a 4 ball Stapleford competition, but that is flexible. Regional winners can go forward to our National Finals day. The 2018 Competition will be held on Thursday 20th of September 18 at Rodway Hill Golf Club, Highnam, Nr Gloucester. For more details please contact myself Andrew Mackereth, or call 0152 463263 / 07588 123590.

Millennium Way

This started out as one 100 mile long distance path across the Midlands from east to west (you can go the other way!). It was designed by Solihull 41 Club under the chairmanship of Chris Tayler. They realised that not all of us can attempt 100 miles, so they added 44 circular walks varying in length from four to eight miles. It is going from strength to strength and is now on the Ordnance Survey maps. Several 41 Clubs are now involved and 44 of us are circular walk wardens. All the routes are available, updated daily as necessary, on the website. If you are interested in the outdoor life, take a look HERE.

Classic Car Weekend

We ran our first weekend in 2014 and are looking to do one or two each year going forward. The 2018 Classic Rally will be held between 8th and the 10th of June based at Coryton, South Wales. For further information please contact Keith Payne 01446 679396.

Loads of 41ers have some interest in old or sports cars, so come along even if you do not have a classic. We need organisers for future events – it’s not very hard at all. Details will be published in our newsletter.

National Council Weekends

In addition to our National Conference Weekend there are at least two other National Council Weekends each year, which are rotated around the country. Members are welcome as observers to the National Council meeting and you and your partner can join in the weekend’s events. 

Dates for 2018 are ;

Friday 9th February 2018. Ashbury Hotel, Nr. Okehampton.

Friday 13th April 2018. Presbyterian Hall, Belfast.

Saturday 30th June 2018. Park Hotel by Radisson, Aberdeen.

Brand Guidelines

The pdf document ‘Brand Guidelines’ lays out the ways in which the logo may be used, the tones used to print it and the spacing required around it. The point of this is to present a united front in the use and display of our logo. The Brand Guidelines should be supplied to printers when placing orders. CLICK HERE FOR BRAND GUIDELINES

Marketing Information

In 2005 the club undertook commissioned a Mosaic Profile Experian, the market leader in this field. Mosaic Profiling is an analysis of our membership as to their socio-economic groups, leisure and business habits etc. The survey indicated that our membership is very high profile and probably very attractive to companies who may want to market their services or products. CLICK HERE FOR OUR MOSAIC PROFILE.
