  1. Tonight's meeting, 11th July, we have invited back Malcolm and Jill Ricketts to hear their second instalment on their life with Lotus. Please join us from 7pm for fish, chips & a drink all for £10 plus fascinating tales at The Stag Redhill, Alcester. Chris, Lynn, Marie & Adrian
  2. As well as having fun we collected £305 from the Saturday dinner raffle, we split the money between Carol's chosen charities, Mission Motorsport & Cancer Research. The four main prizes were kindly donated by: The Three Counties Show Ground Malvern Autumn Show, The Cotswold Edge Golf Club, The Cotswold De Vere Water Park Hotel and The Cotswold Distillery. A good result, thank you!
  3. David & Sian, thank you for the challenge and you were our inspiration. Thank you to all those who took part, you made it all worth while. Our journey home was via the Gateway to buy Marie 5 litres of non toxic ice cream only to find ourselves marooned on the A419 for 4 hours due to an altercation between a Range Rover and a lorry. However I discovered that the lorry behind us had a refrigerator in his cab large enough to stall the thaw of 5 litres of reasonably priced coconut vegan ice cream. All's well that ends well? Adrian
  4. Thank you Colin (& helpers?) for all your effort, great day, thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Paul Matty's, interesting flavour to my veggie burger? What rain?
  5. Great Midlands Area 2 evening with Fuzz Townshend. A very entertaining insight into his life, careers and behind the scenes at Car SOS. A big thank you to Fuzz from a packed room at The Stag!
  6. Gerard, Great day, thank you for organising the tours. Good to meet your "team" hope that all got home safely!
  7. For the next meeting scheduled for Thursday May 9th, we will have a presentation by one of the stars of the TV show Car SOS. The numbers are limited by fire regulations at The Stag but there are still a few seats available. If you would like to go please send me a pm with your email address. In the event of a last minute postponement, (busy TV filming commitment etc), I can send you an email, in which case the meeting will default to a regular meeting. Adrian
  8. Please be aware that the closing date for this year's Mike Stripe Driving Adventure was 28 February. So, sorry 😂 no more bookings! Adrian
  9. There are only 2 days left to book a room for the Cotswold Drive Out Weekend. Please note that all deposits must be in by 28th February. Plus another reminder that only twin and single room are available as all the double rooms have been taken. Those wishing to join in the day activities with an evening meal will need to complete the booking form and the deposit remains the same price. Those wishing to join in the day activities, only, will need to complete the booking form and the complete cost for this is £10 for both days activities.
  10. Preparations are now well underway for the Mike Stripe Cotswold Weekend, but don't forget only one month remaining until the booking deadline February 28th. All the double rooms are now allocated but twin (& single) rooms are still available. Please ask via this forum should you need any more information. Picture below is the Tithe Barn Bar:-

  13. Kathryn/Andy. As we are still in the early stages of confirmed bookings we need to check with RUA on their return in the New Year. The deal we have with the RUA is based on a number of guests staying over night and the number of booked meals, they are catering for as a club event, bit like a wedding reception. But to clarify Andy’s specific point, all meals will have to be booked and paid for in advance. Happy New Year! Adrian
