Sunday 3rd March - Sunday morning Members’ Meet at Baytree
We are returning to Baytree in March for another Club Members’ meeting as our planned venue at Waterside is not open yet due to on-going repairs after flooding. Just turn up for coffee and a chat or a full English: you choose!
FORTHCOMING DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
Sunday Morning Members’ Meet-Up – 3rd March 2024. Meet from 10am. Baytree, Weston.
Seniors Lunch, Thatched Cottage, Sutterton now booking – 13th March
Drive It Day now booking – 21st April
Below is the original full calendar for 2024 but please note these changes:
Drive It Day is on 21 April (not as originally advertised). Please see Events. Also the 3rd March meet will be at Baytree rather than Waterside due to flooding at the Baston site which has temporarily closed the Waterside business. Similarly, the Sunday meet on 7th April will now be held at Westwood Lakes at Wyberton. There is also a trip to the Lotus factory now planned for 17th April as detailed in the February newsletter.
In relation to the various Shows, it is necessary to ask you to book places several weeks in advance. Please download the document below to get all the details or contact Graham Faulkner who can talk you through plans for Spalding Flower Parade (11th May), Baston (30th June) and Boston (11th August)
There’ll be a few more details on other events to follow in due course. Keep an eye on your monthly Newsletter for details of each event. We will be supporting Phab as our nominated charity for the year.
Thanks to Stuart Gibbard for kicking the 2024 events into gear with his extremely interesting talk on tractors and sports cars, majoring on the links between David Brown and Aston Martin.
Thanks also to Nigel & Joy Mann for an entertaining, if somewhat mind-numbing, quiz for the February clubnight.
