Region 24 - SW London, Surrey, Sussex - Peter McBride

REGION 24 NATIONAL COUNCILLOR

Hello - I’m very pleased to be the Region 24 National Councillor – with 40 clubs and over 800 members it's one of the largest Regions in the UK.Our region covers the large geographical area of stretching right from Alton in the ‘West’ to Rye & Romney Marsh in the ‘East’, and from Egham in the ‘North’ down to the South Coast.

I’m married, with two children, four grandchildren and took early retirement four years ago, though quite where that time has gone I have no idea...  Having spent over 30 years man and boy in Round Table and 41 Club in my club Wallington & Carshalton, I realised that I didn’t know that much about the broader workings, visibility and benefits of the National organisation of 41 Club (I may not be alone in this!).  Also whilst I know, have met and enjoyed some great fellowship with many of the clubs in Region 24, I didn’t have much visibility about what other clubs across the Region did.So as the role was becoming vacant, I decided to go for it… 

So here I am – at your service!

I believe good communication is so important and would like to visit as many Clubs in the Region as possible in my first year and all Clubs as soon as I can. I’ve always enjoyed the variety of different Clubs’ meetings, occasionally give talks on the ‘water of life’ whisky as a hobby and am an enthusiastic golfer though still working to reduce my handicap of 18…  I organised the inaugural Region 24 Golf Day a couple of years ago for the 'Vaughan Harris Cup' and would certainly like to organise the next one.

I’m aware there is a lot of fellowship taking place in and between Region 24 Clubs which I would like to help raise awareness of and would ask all clubs to please contact me to let me know of their diaries so that I can plan the year ahead.  I’m keen to meet all Clubs and listen to your views, find out what your Club is doing and if required, see how I can support you as your National Councillor.

I can be contacted on region24@41club.org or on 07710 063394.

Yours in WD40
