To all Avon (Bristol) DA members
It is with regret that I have to inform you all that despite 2 years in the planning, South West Region have rejected the proposed merger between us and Gloucester DA.

History – Both DA’s have been struggling over the last few years to form committees and the overwhelming feeling of the membership of both DA’s, was this was the way forward.

However, the reason given for rejecting was “not in the interest of the membership” even though Cambrian and Wyvern Region executive had given the merger their blessing.

This matter was passed to Sabina Voysey the Director General. We had questioned the way SWR handled the matter, the decision and the reason (as this is opposite to our members view). Her response is that the constitution states it is upto the regions to agree the merger and that is the end of the matter.

The current committee had last year stated they would not continue after the AGM in March 2020 and if no new committee is formed Avon (Bristol) DA will join the growing list of demised DA’s.

Ian Willis
Chairman
Avon ( Bristol) DA

  1. Thank you to the committee who have worked tirelessly for the benefit of the DA members. In my opinion, there are 3 main problems:
    1 Communication
    2 Communication
    3 Communication
    The DA committee has no way of communicating with it’s own DA members. The Region does not appear to have offered any additional help to improve communication.
    The DA has a Facebook group:
    Avon (Bristol) D. A. Any C&C Club member can join the Facebook group BUT if DA members do not know about DAs they will not know to ask to join.
    All DAs need to be able to communicate with ALL of it’s own members. How can this happen?
    Help is needed from the club to facilitate this. Help is needed now before more DA fold. 🙁

  2. Avon (Bristol) DA have set up a Facebook Group on an attempt to communicate with those members who use Facebook. ALL C&CClub memers are welcome to join.
