We were delighted, therefore, when a member subsequently came forward with an offer to take on the role. Unfortunately, this person had not long been appointed when they had to stand down due to no longer living in the area. All Societies such as BABUS depend upon a small group of members who are willing to undertake the tasks necessary to ensure that the Society's aims are met. One of the most important roles is that of Secretary, to take minutes of meetings (both our own Executive Committee and those with local authorities and Bus operators) as well as background work arranging these meetings, preparing letters on behalf of the Society etc. At present, I and other members of the BABUS Executive Committee are carrying out the role of Secretary between us on a temporary basis but this cannot continue for long and, if we are not able to fill the position, there is a real risk that the future of BABUS may be put in jeopardy. To be blunt, BABUS may have to be wound up at the next AGM. Hopefully, a member will feel that becoming Secretary is something they can do for the Society so as to help us continue to represent the interests of Bus Users in Bedfordshire. If this person might be you, please get in touch. I can be contacted by Email at or by phone on 01234 781031.
