THE SOUTH'S BEST 2CV OWNERS CLUB
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.
Joint Chairmanship: Sean and Fran Cullen
Membership Secretary and Editor: Peter Mitchell
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.
Past events co-ordinator: Pam Kennea
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:
Colin Jenkins, 1944 - 2023
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 Griffiths (Past Chairwoman)
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 Curtis (Past Membership Secretary)
Elaine and Steve
Max Hyde & Annie Griffiths
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.
