PostSubject: Goodbye all    8th June 2012, 19:24

All

It is with sadness that I have to announce my withdrawal from Surrey New MINI life and the Event Support Member role (with immediate effect)

I have made some life long friends and acquaintances within the Club since it’s inception in August 2009 and it is a decision I have not taken lightly

I have always been one of the Club’s biggest supporters and branded it’s name wherever and whenever I can to gain recognition and raise it’s profile.

Ian and I have been communicating since the Bank Holiday and my friends know and understand the reasons for my decision & support me fully. I will continue to socialise with them away from the Club.

As for The Brands Hatch Mini Festival, I fully intend to fulfil my obligation to this and will do my best to ensure you all have a great day, but once this event is over I will step away permanently.

I would like to say thanks to the boys Ian, Dave, Andy (James & Ali also) for their support and understanding regarding this decision.

I wish the Club and all it’s members continued success.

Thanks

Chris

So sorry to see you leaving the club Chris, but as you know, I fully understand. I'm not going to waffle on in here, cos as you say, we've been nattering anyway, but I just want to say a big thank you for everything you've done in the Event Support role, as a normal member and in helping out the club, it's all been appreciated!

Now keep in touch! Smile

Chris, it is going to be really sad to see you withdrawing from active service within the club, however I'm really happy I have gotten to know you through Surrey New MINI, and hope we can stay in touch outside of the club Smile

All the best for the future, and don't be a stranger!

So sorry to hear this Chris! You have always made me feel so welcome and helped me out whenever and with whatever! It has been a great pleasure to know you and I have been very grateful for all your effort you've put into runs and organising events.

I hope to keep in contact on fb but wish you all the best in the future and hopefully will see you at brands hatch!

Very sad to read this at work earlier.

Thank you for everything you have done Chris, and I wish you and Terry well for the upcoming wedding, and the future.

Hope to see you and Alice out and about sometime,

Good luck and best wishes to both Terry and yourself with your upcoming wedding, and a HUGE thanks for welcoming me and also organising runs and shows on behalf of the club.

I'd just like to clarify that Chris' decision has nothing to do with the club itself, and as Dave and I have already said, we are as sad to see Chris go just as much as everybody else is Frown

Chris, I have no idea what has been going on to cause this decision as I have not been as involved with the club as I would like to (personal circumstances) But surely this is the wrong way to deal with an issue? You were so welcoming to me, and others by the comments on this page and you will clearly be sorely missed. It would appear that you love the club and all that you do for it and that this is a big part of your life and you have made some great friends.

In these circumstances, surely it is better to deal with the problem and those who are causing you such upset? Maybe not you personally, but the other administrators should deal with the issues and even ban people who are causing the problem.

I am a member of the Ben Cohen Foundation which is an anti bullying foundation. My principles are therefore to deal with any form of bullying and would be happy to help if needed?

Please, please reconsider your decision and address the problem. You should not suffer for others. Please feel free to inbox me on here or facebook if I can help.

Love and respect, Marcus
