March 2018  Newsletter No 110


Due to Brian not being able to make the meeting and Sue being in America, Laurence had to run the meeting on his own.

He introduced Steve Mould (a ground crew volunteer), who gave us a very informative talk about The Great Western Air Ambulance, our charity for this year’s Cotswold Caper.
Steve began by giving some background information about the Air Ambulance service. The first Air Ambulance in the country was in Cornwall in 1987, by 2014 there were 20 charities operating throughout the country involving 30 helicopters overall. Each area has its own charity and they all rely on their own fundraising efforts, both public and corporate. They receive no Government or National Lottery funding (except in Scotland).

The NHS supplies each Air Ambulance with the equipment and drugs an NHS Ambulance would have, but any specialist equipment and drugs they need are funded by donations.
Great Western Air Ambulance has one helicopter based at Filton at present, but it is due to be relocated to Almondsbury. The service also has two critical care land Ambulances for use at night and in areas where it would be too difficult to land a helicopter.

The service covers a large area: Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire, Bristol, North Somerset, Wiltshire and Bath and North East Somerset with a combined population of 2.1 million and costs approximately £3 million a year to run.
The service answers, on average, 450 calls a year, saving the lives of 350 people. It takes 4 minutes from scramble to take off and they can usually be at their destination within 20 minutes. The helicopter needs a minimal landing area the size of a tennis court.

Each Air Ambulance is staffed with a pilot, a critical care doctor and a critical care paramedic. The paramedic is funded 40% by the NHS, but the doctors are paid by the charity. Most of the doctors have full time jobs and work on a volunteer basis in their spare time.
Steve explained that the Air Ambulance would be deployed when a 999 call has been made and assessed as needing additional help (an Ambulance will already be on its way at this point). The majority of call outs in this area are for road traffic accidents, farm accidents and cardiac arrests. Air Ambulances now carry blood supplies, which, along with the other specialist equipment carried, means casualties will have had a high level of treatment before reaching hospital.

Steve told us that each mission costs £2-3,000 pounds and therefore our fund-raising efforts would be greatly appreciated. Looking at our previous fundraising efforts, this means we could potentially fund 2 lifesaving missions.

Steve gave us lots of interesting information and those at the meeting will now hopefully have a better idea of how our fundraising can help.

After a brief break and the raffle, we continued with the rest of the evening’s business.

Thanks were given to Keith and Wendy Lewis for organising a lovely Sunday Lunch in February at The White Hart in Maismore.

Sue was away but let us know that club funds stand at £2035.94 and that the Caper account already has £3000 in it (this has come from advert fees and entrance money.)  It was pointed out that some of this money will be needed to pay for route guides, rally plaques etc.

Laurence said there are lots of events coming up in the next few months:

Brian and Teresa are organising the March Sunday Lunch at The Clothiers in Stroud.

Easter Monday (2nd April) Coleford Carnival of Transport. If members would like to attend this, let Laurence know.

Trip to Bournemouth 6th to 8th April. Rooms still available.

Thursday 12th April is the next club meeting and AGM. If members have any nominations or agenda items they would like included, they have to send in a notification 2 weeks before (by 29th March). Sue will ask Adrian to put the Club accounts on the website in early April for members to look at and will also bring a copy to the meeting. The accounts will need to be audited.
We will be introducing new membership forms to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force in May. This is something all organisations who hold membership details will be required to do. Laurence explained that in simple terms it means we must have a member’s permission to contact them and they need to state a preference for how they wish to be contacted. Laurence then outlined how this process would be carried out and that an email would follow explaining clearly what members needed to do.

Tuesday 24th April is the first evening run of the year organised by Gethin starting 6.30 to 7.00 from Severn Springs Lay-by. Food will be at 8.30pm.

Thursday 26th April is the skittles match against the Wessex MG Club at The Spencer Sports and Social Club Beanacre Road,Melksham SN12 8AG. There will be a cold buffet, sandwiches and chips available.

Sunday 29th April is St Roses Wheel Nuts Classic car show. Trev will be taking the club gazebo.

Saturday 4th August (1-3pm). A lovely afternoon cruise with a cream tea on one of the Willow Trust’s boats. The boat will be exclusively ours and we are led to believe that the teas are substantial
The cost is £15 per head to include the cruise and tea, with a 50% deposit needing to be paid 2 months before the date and the remaining 50% to be paid a month before.
This promises to be a great outing and is, of course, another good way of raising further
money for the Willow Trust.

Sunday 5th August is South Cerney Steam Fair. This is the largest show of it’s kind still run by volunteers.

Saturday 8th September. The Newent Onion Fayre is taking place then.

Trev explained that the Caper organisation is well underway. We have 90 entrants so far.
