Message from Chair of BCNE re Youth & Junior Development Workgroup

The BCNE regional board is currently conducting a review of the Youth and Junior Development Workgroup.  We want to assess whether the group is meeting the needs of young riders and volunteers of all ages and at all stages of their development.  The workgroup is not currently meeting whilst the review takes place, but it will reconvene in due course.

A short survey is going to be issued to clubs and organisations with youth and junior sections very shortly, so we can capture information to assist with the review.  We want interested parties to have an input into the review and to take an active role in shaping the way the group operates in future.  If anyone has any comments or observations I would be very pleased to hear them – you can email me at chair@britishcyclingnortheast.org.uk.
