POMPEY PUDDLEDUCKS

THE SOUTH'S BEST 2CV OWNERS CLUB

WHO'S WHO

Pompey Puddleducks is already a large club and it's constantly growing, which means the responsibility of things like events, membership details and our famous club magazine are given to individual members of our club, these members are elected (voluntarily of course!) each year and make up our 'Committee'. We have a number of positions in the club and here is a list of each of our committee members and a description of what they do.  

PuddleduckschairmenFranandSeanFotor

Joint Chairmanship: Sean and Fran Cullen

PeterAndGillian

Membership Secretary and Editor: Peter Mitchell
Treasurer and Club Shop: Gillian Mitchell

Peter and Gillian are two of the longest running members of the club, as they were two of the founding members all those years ago. Peter is the club's editor and as such edits and publishes the club's very own magazine 'Splash'. Gillian is in charge of both the club shop selling 2CV and club related items like mugs, t-shirts, stickers etc... She is also the treasurer of our club and oversees the accounts, keeping an exact record of money coming in and out of the club.

In the picture you can see Peter and Gillian with 'Pepe', Gillian's 2CV. Peter also has a multicoloured 2CV called 'Tintin', along with his very early split screen H van called 'Le Fourgon Francais'. Together they form a vital role in the club and put great effort into many of the club's other activities, helping to arrange many events like our annual Valentine's Day convoy and summer camp.

Pam

Past events co-ordinator: Pam Kennea
Pam is the events co-ordinator and helps to organize the many events we take part in, from long established outings to some rather spontaneous events. Here you can see Pam with her car 'Francesca'. She and her husband Pete have been members for 9 years and can be seen at many events whether with Francesca or in Pete's red and white Dolly 'Poppy'.

As the events coordinator Pam organizes most of our events, arranging meeting times, convoys, tickets etc... and plays a crucial role in the club, allowing us to get our 2CVs out and about as often as possible and making ownership that more enjoyable.

As well as our committee we have many well known and popular members of our club, here we have a few pictures of some of our members:

Ann-Marie Burdett
Ann-Marie was our founder member, but subsequently moved away and now lives on a barge with her husband, Dave. They paid a return visit to our 2018 Bastille meeting when they were staying close by.

Alison

Alison King
Alison became the first member of the Pompey Puddleducks when she answered Anne-Marie's note which was stuck under the windscreen wiper of her red 2CV back in 1990. Subsequently she owned a rare red and grey Dolly, then finally a green and white Dolly. Now sadly, as the cost of keeping a 2CV on the road has risen, she has had to resort to a C1. It's still a Citro├źn... And Alison still joins in with as many activities and meetings as she can. This is Alison celebrating her 70th at our meeting in January 2023!

Colin

Colin Jenkins, 1944 - 2023
Colin first appeared at a Puddleducks meeting in November 1994 and was a 'hands-on' member and one-time chairman. He was never short of ideas for events or camping accommodation, from a home-made gypsy caravan to a blow-up tent! And he was always ready with a topical 'interesting' joke.

Colin started off with a Dyane, progressed to 'Spotty', his yellow and black 2CV, then to the Mehari which he will be best remembered for. It was modified on a regular basis and quite often smelt of new paint - or escaping gas when he was carrying cylinders for his crepe-selling ventures, which he pursued for many years at various 2CV events. (Usually the crepes became noticeably more alcoholic as the evening progressed!)

Living in Oakhanger, Colin was able to access other local 2CV clubs regularly and he frequently attended continental meetings. He was well-known and well-loved. He leaves a big gap in our 2CV world and will be very sadly missed.

Wendy

Wendy Griffiths (Past Chairwoman)
Wendy has been a member of our club for 12 years now and was elected as chairwoman on three separate occasions over the last 7 years. As chairwoman she simply directed things and delegated to the other committee members - she came up with ideas and they implement them! 

Wendy can be seen here with her 2CV 'Kermit', which she bought from her brother in 1994. She has since become a firm member within the club, and in her own words "I love the company, the atmosphere of the meetings (except when I am heckled!!) and the general camaraderie. It is always very daunting for new members joining the club, but they always say to me how they are instantly included and there are no cliques. The Club should be very proud of itself".

Keith

Keith Curtis (Past Membership Secretary)
Keith has been in our club since 1999 and can be seen driving his beloved Dolly who as yet remains nameless?

ElaineAndSteve1

Elaine and Steve
Elaine has been part of the club since it began and has had several 2CVs over the years. Here she can be seen with 'Ruby', along with her husband Steve. Sadly, Elaine no longer owns a 2CV, but she remains a very popular member of the club and always brings a sparkle to any of the events we hold, not least with her unmissable bright pink picnic hamper which other clubs members love to raid when she's not looking!

Goodwood2AnnieinAuffey

Max Hyde & Annie Griffiths
Max has been a member for many years now and can be seen here with just one of his very unique collection of cars, one of his home-made specials named the 'MK2'. Believe it or not under it's shiny aluminium body lies a bog standard red 2CV! He also has in his collection two 2CV vans and an H van, all affectionately named after characters from the Muppets.

Annie and her husband Geoff have been members since 2003. In the picture you can see Annie in her 2CV 'Nobby' enjoying some sun whilst at a 2CV event in France. She has always liked 2CVs along with Fiat Panda's (why?) and plucked up the courage to buy one after their Daihatzu was written off in an accident. Since then their collection of 2CVs has grown to include both 'Splodge' a red Club, and 'Charlie' a cream and red 2CV.
