Secretary

Calvin Bradley: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.Calvin is a relative newcomer to the world of A series. His first 2cv was offered him free unexpectedly by an old scootering friend in 2010, 7 years after they’d had a conversation when he’d expressed an interest in owning one. 6 months after getting it on the road it was stripped and sent off to be repainted. Impatience kicked in and rather than be without one, a 2 tone grey Charleston was purchased. In August 2011, the Charleston made way for a white ’83 LHD 2cv6 and an all original LHD 1968 Dyane 6 four light ‘Norma’ in Blue Crystal’ (for which there was no rational reason for buying other than having seen her and being smitten) Finally in 2012 his first 2cv was back on the road transformed from black and white stripes in emulsion & blackboard paint (plus rust) to Bleu Thasos and a look based on a 1969 model. Calvin responded to a request for a volunteer to assist the Secretary with minute taking in 2011, was co-opted to the Health & Safety Committee post in 2012 and elected Secretary September 2014. 

 

Treasurer

Mark Dunn ('Bean') [Godiva Two Horse Riding School]: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Mark Dunn, TreasurerBack in 1993 and at the tender age of 17, 'Bean' bought his very first car, a 1981 Beige Dyane 6, for £95, and became a member of 2CVGB for 2 years. In 2004 he rekindled his love for the marque and purchased a 1983 Beachcomber, adding to this a couple of years later an 87 Grey/Grey Charleston and Bamboo (which he never gelled with). After disposing of the Bamboo, Bean used the money and took the plunge into van ownership and in October 2012 bought a 1971 AKS400, which he imported from France.  Today the Beachcomber lays in bits on the garage floor, having had extensive restoration work carried out 2 years ago, and the Charleston is in need of a new chassis, having succumbed to the dreaded rust worm, and the van, well that has become the only usable 'A-Series' in the fleet.

 

Membership Secretary

Andy Cartwright :This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Andy Cartwright, Membership Secretary Andy has been a member of the Club since 1985, and his first ever 2CV meeting was actually the 1985 World Meeting in Cheltenham! Since then he has never been without one (or more) A-series Citroens, and has owned various models including Dyanes, 2CV6s, an Acadiane, a Mehari, a 1956 ripple bonnet AZ, and, his most recent purchase, a 1969 AK30 van. He also owned a couple of Traction Avants, but his last one, a 1951 Type 11B was sold (on Ebay!) to a Latvian – the car is now in the Riga motor museum.

Web Manager

Position Vacant: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The position is currently being looked after by our Treasurer Bean - he doesn't want to be fulfilling this role indefinitely and would much rather someone comes forward to take on the role permanently.

 

Events & Local Groups Co-Ordinator

Emily Mackett: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Emily has been a member of 2CVGB since 2010, when she got her beloved Dyane (Joyce). Since then she has travelled almost 40,000 A-series miles, across six countries, and made countless friends. She is passionate about the events and social side of the club, and after assisting to organise three nationals, it seemed a natural leap to move into the events & local groups role. 

 

Registrar of Registers

Matthew Concannon ('Ami Matt') [Hertfordshire Hill Hoppers]: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Matthew Concannon, Registrar of RegistersMatt has owned Citroën A series cars since 1992, learning to drive in a wreck of a '76 2CV, before discovering the Ami 8 by accident in 1997 after being run over by one at a camp. Seeing this as the future (due to concussion, probably) he has kept an Ami 8 on fleet since then, taking over the Ami Register in 1998. Matt has stayed true to the Ami even after being distracted by 2CVs, Dyanes, Ami Supers, Trabants, Wartburgs, mopeds, GS, CX, BX, and the mighty DS. Reduced to poverty after DS ownership, Matt  now drives a Citroën LNA as a penance, and represents the Registers on the committee in the role of Registrar of Registers. In this role he assists with dating and authentication for Club members' cars, and represents the Club to bodies such as SPOG, the DVLA and FBHVC.

Child Protection and Health & Safety

Vanessa Harrison, Child ProtectionVanessa has been riding around in 2CVs since the age of 3, thanks to her mum’s passion for la deuche. Some members may remember Vanessa for organising the 2011 National in Oxford, however, this time she’s back on the committee wearing a different hat. Owing to her current day job involving policy writing, and having taught children for many years in the past, she’s taken up the child protection role for 2CVGB.
