January

 

Tuesday 14 January - Committee Meeting - The Bull, Hinton 7.45 pm


Saturday 25 January - AGM
- Winter Social and after lunch talk by Chris Blakey

AGM

The AGM of the Bristol Austin 7 Club will take place during our Winter Social at Orchardleigh Golf and Country Club, BA11 2PB. This country estate near to Frome has a beautiful House at the heart of the grounds and further up the very long drive, the golf clubhouse where we will be able to meet, eat and listen in tranquil surroundings.

This year we are having a special social, with lunch and after-lunch speaker. On arrival from 11am, we will have a tea/coffee welcome with the formal meeting starting at 11.30am. The meeting last year took less than an hour, so although essential, it is not a long arduous undertaking !

Lunch follows: one or two courses and after lunch we are delighted that BA7C member Chris Blakey will tell us about his fantastic adventure in driving his Austin 7, Baboushka, from Corsham to Japan via Russia, for the World Cup Rugby, jointly promoting rugby and travel in an Austin 7.

We need numbers and menu choices in advance so make your choices, and let Sue Riley, our Newsletter editor, know.

Butchers Arms, 22 Bath Road, Bristol BS30 9DG on A431 halfway between Longwell Green and Hanham.
