High up the order of business was a vote on potential new members. Two writers from the region had applied to join the group, both hailing from the south-western reaches of our area.
Ben Harrington is a former firefighter from Cheshire. He’s runs his own motoring site, at DrivingTorque.com, for almost ten years.
Freelancer James Fossdyke is also a Cheshire lad, and will be a familiar face to many of us from launches and events. He includes Diesel Car Magazine and the Press Association in his portfolio.
After a suitable review of their bodies of work, the Group voted to admit both members to its ranks.
Also re-joining the Group is Graham Courtney. Graham is a familiar face to many members, as he’s been part of the group for periods since 1987, serving as vice-chairman in 1996.
