How we work
The framework for Spokes's work and activities is set out in our constitution.
Spokes day-to-day work is managed by a committee elected by members at the AGM . The committee co-opts members from the council districts in east Kent, ie Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Shepway, Swale and Thanet. The committee meets each month, apart from August, in Canterbury.
Our AGM elects the committee to manage Spokes in the forthcoming year, receives reports on activities and campaigns and usual manages to find time for a guest speaker too.
Minutes and reports from the following AGMs are available:
Local groups provide a forum for Spokes members to work with cyclists in their area and input to Spokes' decision making.
There are local groups for:
