The Club Committee & Officers

The Club Committee & Officers are voted in each year as part of the Annual Review meeting. For more details on the process please have a look through the Club Constitution.

Kevin Daffey

Club Chairperson

My role is to direct the general affairs of the club including chairing the committee meetings and AGM.  I enable the other committee members to discharge their roles and support them in decision making. 


With the secretary I look after the constitutional matters and help with any disciplinary matters that arise.  I keep in touch with members through being an active ride leader and event organiser.

I am contactable by email at chair@chepstowcyclingclub.wales

Gemma Hewitt

Club Secretary


As club secretary I am responsible for working alongside the chairman to produce the agenda for the monthly committee meetings. I publish a Record of Actions and Decisions (RoAD) following the meetings and issue them to club members. I am the principle administrator for the club, ensuring that all correspondence to the club is issued to the relevant officers for response. I use the British Cycling Club Management Tool to support me in my role and keep members up to date with affairs and communications. I am responsible for members knowing where they can access key information such as the club’s Constitution and Code of Conduct.

Tom Parkin

Technology Officer

My role in the club is to support all aspects of the IT. This includes the website, email accounts, passwords  and a few of the apps  that we use as a club. When I'm able to get out, I enjoy the Saturday Progressives or Sunday Speedy ride. I also occasionally help out with the Recreational Ride on a Wednesday and will be helping with the coaching of young people as we start to develop that.

Junior Cycling, Time Trials and Track

My role as the junior cycling officer within the club is to promote cycling, and provide training to the youth and junior cyclists in the area. The development of skills is important to enable younger club members join the main club rides, and try competitive cycling if that is of interest.
