The awards presentations for 2011 events were held at Walworth Castle on 7th January. The evening was hosted by Section Chairman Dennis Marwood and attended by a full house of some 90 members and guests.


The Trophies awaiting presentation

The guest of honour was VMCC President Colin Bell, accompanied by his wife Marian,  who both took a full part in the festivities.

Following a well-received carvery meal and short speeches the main activity of the evening took place. You can see a full list of award winners here Award Presentation 2012 web.pdf

The presentations over, the committee once again lowered the tone ( groan ) by subjecting those present to a Motorcycle-themed rendition of the Lambton Worm complete with faux Geordie accents.


The South Durham Male Voice Choir in good voice despite the derogitory remarks above

The evening continued, with ale and dancing of dubious quality, but no less enjoyable for all that.

Many thanks go to our guests of honour, organisers including Martin and David Porteous, Dennis Marwood, Brian Smith and the delightful raffle girls.

Can I just add that it was nice to welcome our four-times trials champion Rob Green and his family to the event as well as to you all for making the night another success.

Awards  Presentations 2011

The annual awards evening was held at our usual venue of Walworth Castle on January 15th when ninety guests had a most enjoyable time. VMCC President Bill Phelps was the principal guest and made the presentations to deserving winners. A full list of recipients can be found on this link.

The committee choir displayed their usual tenuous grasp of choral togetherness and once again earned the musical equivalent of the Derrier Trophy.

  John Robinson concluded the formalities by presenting the ?paraphernalia? of office to incoming Section Chairman Dennis Marwood. Dennis responded by thanking John for his successful two years tenure as Chairman and expressed the appreciation of the section for his endeavours.

Many thanks are due to the family Porteous, Brian Smith, the raffle girls and, most importantly, yourselves for your support of another successful evening.   

Presentation Night 2010

Peter Brannan being presented with the Concours Award for the best concours machine of the year appearing on South Durham events for the first time


Highlight of the evening. The committee atempting to sing, "Remember you're an old git" Yes ok we remember!
