The BRC Area 20 Liaison Committee would like to ask you a few questions over the next few weeks. This will allow our next meeting to focus on what is important to you the individual members and Area 20 clubs. The Area committee is made up of representatives from each affiliated club within Area 20 but it has become apparent for a number of reasons that clubs are not always represented at meetings and in some cases not engaging in any form with the opportunity to raise points with the Area and in turn the British Riding Clubs movement. Only 25% of clubs attended the AGM and this resulted in an alternative method having to be used to elect the key officials for 2020.
The questions will be based on a poll with a selection of answers for you to choose. If this doesn't best reflect your views please contact your club and ask them to raise the point at the next meeting or contact your area committee direct.
There will of course be issues that can not be answered or be within the jurisdiction of the Area committee but we can point you in the right direction if required.
The polls should not be shared beyond this page to preserve the integrity so if a member you know and who doesn't belong to this page wants to participate then get them to sign up and like this page. They can always leave once the polling is complete.
Comments attached to the polls may not be acted upon so please do highlight them to your club Area committee rep. If you don't know who they are then contact your club.
Similar requests for feedback will be sent to clubs and appear on the Area web site.

Welcome to the British Riding Clubs- Area 20 Website.

Area 20 covers North Wales, Cheshire, Shropshire &much of Staffordshire. There are 23 affiliated clubs & Centres with a total membership of Approx 2,000.
The Area committee consists of a Chairman, Secretary & Treasurer. The Area 20 Liaison committee holds meetings 3 to 4 times per year, attended by representatives of the affiliated Clubs, and supported by the Area Representative, to co-ordinate Area activities throughout the year. This includes the organisation of Qualifiers, provision of Subsidised Training to affiliated Clubs, by use of the Area training grant which the Area receives every year.
Although all Clubs affiliated to BRC are autonomous, the Area committee can provide support where problems occur within the Club structure.
There is a considerable amount of Safety & Administrative legislation these days, the Area disseminates information and advice from BRC HQ.
