 COMING UP

A calendar detailing the 30 or so events we’ve been running or are yet to do so in 2019 is here: CalendarLeaflet2019final2  They are coming thick and fast! And there are more events we have been invited to detailed at the bottom of this page.

In August, David Chapman’s clubnight is now on Wednesday 28th at The Chequers in Weston; there will be a run from Holbeach beforehand.

In September, we have a couple of socials: firstly our club night meeting is at V-Ate, which is not on the usual Tuesday but on Thursday 12th and then we have a Brunch meet on Sunday 29th at Wyberton.

Our planned visit to the Escape Room in October  has been replaced by a visit to the ‘We’ll Meet Again’ WW2 Museum on Freiston Shore near Boston; that will take place on Tuesday 8th. And, on Tuesday 22nd, we will welcome acclaimed Lincolnshire horticulturist Johnny Walkers who will give a talk on his career, which has included a run of over 20 consecutive Gold Medals at Chelsea for his work on daffodils.

Full details of individual events appear on our Events page and in the monthly newsletter.

We’ve also been out and about at a number of other Classic Car Shows across the summer: our gazebo was at Baston/Grimsthorpe and Boston and  we will also be at Sleaford on 7 September.

See your newsletter for the latest updates and contacts for all our activities.
