Region 20

Region 20 National Councilor profile – Andrew Hornby

I am pleased to represent Region 20 (Thames Valley) as National Councillor for 41 Club since April 2023. I live in the village of Syresham, near Brackley, in the northernmost end of Region 20. I joined Brackley & District Round Table in 1992 and ‘graduated’ to Brackley 41 Club in 2010; I am a member of Isis 41 Club as well (also in Region 20), and a founding member of OBE 41 Club.

I consider the main part of my role as National Councillor is to ensure that

  • the voices, views and ideas of 41ers in our region are heard by the Association;
  • club news, events and fellowship activities within our region are shared among our members, and further afield;
  • our region’s members are kept abreast of national events, initiatives, and other opportunities to enhance everyone’s 41 Club experience.

I’m keen to encourage and support local 41 Clubs in their plans to attract and welcome new members, while keeping existing members engaged, and making membership of one of our 41 Clubs fulfilling and rewarding for everyone.

I look forward to meeting you at one of your club’s meetings, or at a regional, national, or even international event. But don’t wait till then to share your views, news and ideas with me, or to ask any questions – you can email me any time. And I’m happy to chat over the phone if there’s something you’d like to discuss.

Region 20 is made up of around 780 41ers in 28 clubs:

Abingdon & District – Ascot – Basingstoke – Bicester – Bourne End & Flackwell Heath – Brackley & District – Buckingham & District – Caversham – Faringdon & District – Henley-on-Thames – High Wycombe – Isis – Maidenhead – Marlow – Newbury – Oxford Cherwell – Oxford (No. 19) –Reading Valley Veterans – Sandhurst & Yateley – Thame & Mid-Oxon – Twyford – Wallingford – Wantage – West Forest – Windsor & Eton – Witney – Wokingham – Wycombe.

Each of us will have done different things in 41 Club, and I’m interested to share best practice and lessons learned from each other’s experience as ex-Tablers.
