While several of us were at the Ranskill Scarecrow Festival on Saturday, 9th June, one of our members, Scott, and his friend Gary, did a sponsored 75 mile cycle ride for our local hospice, starting and finishing at the Club’s HQ in Worksop
There was no Saturday morning sleep-in for Debbie, Fundraiser for Bassetlaw Hospice or David, Leader of Bassetlaw District Council who came to see them off at 8.15am – pictured here with the cycle ride support team.
Scott and Gary completed the ride in 6 and three-quarter hours having made 2 stops along the way one of which was to call in to see us at the Ranskill Scarecrow Festival.
Saturday, 26th May 2018 saw the first outing of the year for our Big Red Tent when we attended a Family Gala organised by the Doncaster Central branch of the Royal British Legion. Tom, who is currently their Chairman (and also one of our members) asked if we could take along our gazebo and some radios. We never need asking twice! The weather was kind – warm and sunny for a change – and we had a steady stream of visitors throughout the day. We’ll be out doing it all again on 9th June, this time at the Ranskill Scarecrow Festival
We are asking members how they would like to mark the occasion? Suggestions please! sent details to info AT g3rcw.org.uk.
If you were a former or a founder member of the Radio Society, we would love to hear from you – please use the contact us section of the website to get in touch or please come and visit us on a Tuesday or Thursday Evening.

Peter Nettleton (M0XKF) Receives the Harold Chadwick (G8ON) Cup from the Society Chairman Martin Fearn (M0ZMF). The Harold Chadwick Cup is awarded to a Society member of outstanding service to the Society.
Peter has been a long term Treasurer and then Trustee of the Society, many members would say if it wasn’t for the Partnership of the Late Roy Frettsome (G4WPW) and Peter there wouldn’t be a Worksop Amateur Radio Society. We are all very grateful for all Peter has done for the Society.
Peter has retired from the Trustee role at the AGM in October 2017, and will remain a life member of Worksop Amateur Radio Society.
Harold Chadwick , who the cup is named after was one of the founder members of North Notts. Radio Society, from which came the Worksop Amateur Radio Society, Harold was well know in the Town, and a keen member of the Rotary Club.
Amongst other things, in 1961 Harold gave a demonstration of Amateur Radio at a ‘Hobby Fair’ in Worksop organised by the Rotary Club.
Many local people in Worksop may also remember Harold as the manager of the Labour Exchange. Harold’s son Peter Chadwick (G3RZP) went on to become a President of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB).
