Hampshire region update

Hello everyone

We are well into October and unfortunately the weather is turning. Although it has to be said that I view this as just a step closer to spring! You know optimism and all that😁.

In the meantime, although most of us have our cars safely ensconced in their garages, we still have our regular meetings at the Crofton Inn in Stubbington. Our next meeting is tomorrow (Wednesday 20th) at 7.30pm. Look out for the MCR sign board. I know I may have said the second Wednesday in an earlier email, but I got that wrong, it is the third Wednesday of the month.

Providing we have enough people we will have a short quiz. Next month Sally has booked the skittles alley at the same venue and further on in December we have a Christmas meal booked. Judging by our recent meal at the Crofton; it should be good.

So, as you can see plenty going on. Do please try to come, the more the merrier. It is a great time to catch up with people you don’t see so often and although the talk does involve cars, it is not always the case!

Hope to see you all soon.

Tony and Sally.

Newcastle & Durham Region October meet

Hi all, Just the usual message to remind you that it’s the monthly meet on Monday- 7.30pm at the Dun Cow, Bournmoor. Hope to see some of you there 👍 We’re also looking for helpers for the Region’s rally, the Borders, on the 20th November if anyone’s keen? Nothing too onerous and a lot of fun. Cheers, Niall.

Hampshire region update, new venue.

Happy belated summer everyone!
As some of you will have seen on Facebook, I have some good news regarding a new meeting place. It has been sometime since we were last able to have a meeting. The Queens head, our last venue, has closed and we were looking for a replacement before the pandemic hit… Since then I have struggled to find a new venue for our meetings.

Sally and I have contacted a few venues and visited a couple. I had felt quite confident that the Golden Lion in Southwick would be suitable. However we visited for a meal and look around. The meal whilst very good was fairly expensive (£17 for a main course), and when we enquired there was no bar menu simply the restaurant menu. In addition the two small bars would have been too small for us. Whilst there is also an outside marquee/gazeebo; this has limited protection from the cold in the winter.

However the good news is that we have found a venue that can host us. This is the Crofton Inn on Crofton Lane Stubbington PO14 3QF. Sally and I met the landlord and he was most accommodating. We can have a separate area, and although this is an outside building, it has heaters and walls meaning we should be snug. If needs be in the winter we can use an indoor room. The car park is quite large and we can see most of it when indoors.
The pub has a skittles alley which we can book, maybe before Christmas? Pints average out at £4 and the menu is about £10 a dish.

We have booked for the second Wednesday each month, meaning that our first meeting will be on the 15th of this month at 19.30. This venue will only become our permanent home if you all like it. I very much hope so.

I am hoping that for this first meeting that everyone who can will come in a mini. I look forward to seeing you there.

September meet

Hi all,
Just a quick message to remind you that the September club night is this Monday, the 6th, at the Dun Cow from 7.30pm onwards. It also looks like an interloper from Sussex Region will be there! Hope you can make it. Cheers, Niall.
