Evening folks,
Some of you may have noticed that Ive not been rather quiet recently.
Those of you that know me better than most are aware that for the past few years i have been battling mental health issues and it seems they have got the upper hand in recent months.
I therefore need to make time for myself, so that I can take effective action against my mental demons.

To that end, I have had to make one of the hardest decisions of my life, so far.
It is with a heavy heart that, after some 6 years as your site Admin, in order to concentrate on my wellbeing, I have decided to step down from the role. I dont really want to do it, but I know I need to for my future health.

I will, of course, be poking my nose in to say hi, from time to time.
And you never know, when I am back in tip-top form, they may even let me back in, never say never eh? :lol:

I would just like express my heart felt thanks for all the support and friendship I have received along the way and it has been my honour to serve you in the Admin role.

I am truly proud of this wonderful club and its members, keep doing what you do best and represent our most epically magnificent cars.

Thank you and God bless.
See you on the other side :grin:

Thank you for everything you have done in the many roles that you have had within the club over many years.

Your health, both physical and mental, is by far more important.

Take your time, monkey slowly catchy as I like to say.

Best wishes and all that jazz.

Neil

As you know, we all appreciate what you have done for this club, but health is of the up most importance.

Hope you do pop in here but don't feel you have too.

Glad to have made friends with you and long may it last.

We are all here if you need us.

On the flip side then

You are a big part of this club mate no matter what role you are in, Admin or nose poking.

 

Thankyou for your help and support in all you have done for the club.

 

Sometimes you have to strip back the layers of life and just keep it simple. I have been there myself.

 

best wishes mate

Thank you all for those nice comments.
I'm sure it won't be long before I'm trying to interfere, and I'm sure @Neil and @Clive will be equally quick to tell me to get lost :rofl:

Hey there stranger.
I had noticed there was a noticeable absence from you on here, I had also noticed a bit of a downer in your mood, especially when your motor wasn't where you were expecting it to be....
Then all of a sudden there was the isle of wigit thing and your hypertuned motor on display and I happily thought you were back in with both feet....
You talked me into the hypertune map and was there when I turned up to add the extra horses, I dunno if you can remember but you led the way on my test runs , both of us slowing down to a crawl and then booting it ( whilst :censored: off the other traffic ! )
You were good enough to introduce me to Shane and I think you even made me a coffee ? :lol:
I also made it to one of the only meets I've ever gone too, the amd rolling road day down at Thurrock which was all down to your organising.

I'm not going to pretend I know the struggles your having mate, just that I do know it's hard to get up when you hit the ground .
Do your best to stay strong fella and we'll all keep are fingers crossed that we see you pop in now and then .
All the best Mr C
