I would like to thank all of the members that took the time to attend this years AGM at the Lincoln Hall SE16. The meeting was well attended, in excess of 70 members were present. The Question and answer session with John Mason and Helen Chapman was heated at times, understandably the anger and frustration many drivers feel was always going to show through. However, I would like to thank you all for the level of decorum that was kept at the meeting, especially as many drivers are experiencing financial hardship in these difficult times.
Many questions were asked and some very good points were made, acknowledged and noted by Mr Mason. Mr Mason gave assurances of his commitment to the cab trade as a whole and described his job as “a monumental task”. The meeting was constructive and I look forward to following up on issues that were raised. Once again I would like to thank you all . More on the AGM will follow in the next edition of “The Badge.”
