Keith Lomax has been Honorary Treasurer since 2003. Prior to that he was Area Delegate for the East Anglian Area in 1991 and BMFA Honorary Secretary from 1991 to 1996. He has also held committee posts at club and area level. He has undertaken various roles in relation to the Power Nationals including being coordinator in 1992 and famously running the bar from 1994 to 1998; helped out at the Free Flight Nationals for four years; manned the BMFA stand at many shows; and initiated the children’s DART workshops at the Model Engineers Exhibition.
Keith is married to Christine who also works at the Nats and on the stand, and has three adult stepsons (who also all work at the Nats, usually on the roping crew). Keith and Christine also have two dogs (George and Holly) who are known to quite a few members.
Keith’s model flying activities started with R/C Power fixed wing ‘club’ flying and have included indoor and a very poor attempt at scale.
Other interests include canal boat holidays, photography and anything to do with maintaining a house and the stepsons’ cars. Keith is a governor of a school for children with special educational needs.
When he has time to go to work, Keith is an internal auditor (like an accountant but more friendly and interesting) and specialises in auditing computer systems. Having worked for various multinationals, Keith currently works at Motability Operations, the company that operates Europe’s largest car fleet – providing a service to over 400,000 disabled people in the United Kingdom.
