Postponed Spring Trip to Derbyshire rearranged

SEPTEMBER 2020  Losehill House Hotel trip – 3 nights from Monday, Sep 21st – kindly organised by Jenny and Trev Overson …and not to be missed! The Peak District is beautiful and Losehill is absolutely fabulous, hence the return booking after a fabulous time in 2019. Also, they are completely geared up to ensure a safe return to “normality”. See www.losehillhouse.co.uk for reassurance. It’s a privately owned hotel with a friendly team and fine dining. Jenny and Trev still have space, please call Jenny asap on 07736 271113 if you fancy treating yourselves.

Message from Joy Mann

Hello Everyone,

As I’m sure you’re already aware, many of us are having to keep a very low profile due to coronavirus but the good news is that Matt Hancock says I should be allowed out in August!

Understandably, all SEECCC events have been postponed for some time and remain so until we can assure your safety in getting us back on track.  In the interim, your monthly Newsletter will still fall into your inbox. If you have any interesting snippets, motoring memories / pics to share or perhaps a tale to recount we would be extremely grateful; thanks to those who have already contributed. Please email our newsletter editor, Adrian Cunnington, seeccc@btinternet.com

We are hoping, fingers crossed, we will be able to finalise arrangements for some club events very soon. I am fairly optimistic we’ll go ahead with Jenny & Trev Overson’s Jazz Picnic on August 2nd and with Phil & Jean Treversh’s run out and BBQ on August 11th. The organisers are in talks with the venues and we are currently awaiting confirmation. Social distancing will be key on both but as we are looking at outdoor settings I feel we can be hopeful.   

If anyone has any ideas for suitable venues we can use for an evening / weekend run out and possibly take our own picnic please do let me know. Toilet facilities would be a major consideration!

As September is also fast approaching, I must mention our Losehill House Hotel trip – 3 nights from Monday, Sep 21st – kindly organised by Jenny and Trev Overson …and not to be missed! This will now sound as if I am on commission but the Peak District is beautiful and Losehill is absolutely fabulous, hence the return booking. Also, they are completely geared up to ensure a safe return to “normality”. See www.losehillhouse.co.uk for reassurance. It’s a privately owned hotel with a friendly team and fine dining. Jenny and Trev still have space, please call Jenny asap on 07736 271113 if you fancy treating yourselves.

So, please stay in touch and keep checking your inbox and this website for any updates. In the meantime, look after yourselves and do let us know if you have any flashes of inspiration for forthcoming outings or events.

Best wishes,

Joy.
