I have been a member of the MVT for 30 years, and I have restored several military vehicles from motorcycles to scout cars.

I have also been the South Cumbria and North Lancs Area safety officer for ten years, and I am now its area secretary.

Safety in our hobby, both for members and the public, has always been important, but in today’s world even more so. However it should not make our hobby impossible with bureaucracy.

A sensible and measured approach is what I and the rest of the Management team strive for.

As awards Officer I administer the Wilkinson Sword Trophy competition and look after the award items themselfs.
