Website Forum Members may post on the David Brown Tractor Club website forum, but members may not charge for providing any advice on the forum nor may they advertise their professional services. Members must not disclose any advice posted on the forum to non-members. Any member who breaches the foregoing rules will be subject to the Disciplinary Procedure below.
Disciplinary Procedure All members of the Committee will hear formal complaints or allegations and be involved in the proceedings. Upon receipt of a formal allegation from any member of the Club the Committee will investigate the allegation. Members may be approached to give statements that will be passed to the Committee. Providing a statement does not preclude a Committee member from taking part in a disciplinary hearing.
All persons involved in the investigation will be advised not to discuss the case beyond the bounds of the investigation and hearing process. If, at the conclusion of the investigation, the allegations appear to have substance the subject of the allegation will be invited to a formal hearing with the Committee at which they will have the right of reply. The hearing will normally be held within 28 days after the conclusion of the investigation. If such allegations are then substantiated, the Committee may impose disciplinary measures on the member. Disciplinary Measures The Committee, having determined that formal allegations have been substantiated, may terminate the membership of the particular member in question immediately. In all cases of disciplinary action, the specific cause or reason will be quoted and a record kept by the Club Secretary. Decisions made under the Disciplinary Measures will be reported to the subject, by a member of the Committee, in person and/or in writing. Right of Appeal If the member feels aggrieved by such disciplinary measure he, she or they may appeal to the Committee in writing who may then confirm, quash or substitute the originally decided disciplinary measure. The decision of the appeal committee after hearing such appeal is final.”
We are pleased to confirm that all members of the David Brown Tractor Club who have a tractor manufactured before 1960 are licenced to mix, or have mixed on their behalf, heavy oil / kerosene for use in their vehicle.
The DBTC Museum is well worth a visit to see the club’s growing collection of tractors, machinery, memorabilia and archive material. Take the opportunity to peruse the Club Shop, simply ask advice or just talk to like-minded David Brown tractor enthusiasts.
Please note: all the opening times are Sundays. The times are 10am to 3pm and the address is Spinksmire Mill, Meltham, HD9 4AN. For further details of the auctions or club meetings, please contact the club secretary.
