Monday 24 December - Christmas Eve at The Stag
- Cathy Randall

Christmas Eve 18

As in previous years, club members will be meeting up at The Stag, Hinton Charterhouse, BA2 7SW, on Christmas Eve for a festive meal before the big day.

We have booked tables from 7.30pm. We are always warmly welcomed by the pub and if anyone would like to join the festive fun, please let me know you are coming. There is no entry form or Austin 7 required. Please don’t book with The Stag as it will get too confusing. This is an informal gathering and we would love to see you.

- Mike Tarry

Spares Shed

STOP PRESS - One very rare 6 inch brake drum for early ('23 to '26 ?) has been found during a tidy in the Spares Shed.

The friction surface has been protected with greased paper so it is possible that this drum has never been used.

The drum is available to members at this weekends Spares Shed.

Contact Mike Tarry (Spares Sec) by phone if you would like further detail.

Friday 19 July - Sunday 21 July - BA7C Annual Weekend Rally

Rally 18

After our successful return to the Atwell-Wilson Motor Museum in 2018, the Committee has decided to repeat the experience for 2019. We will have use of the big field behind the museum, as we did in 2015 for our Golden Jubilee Rally, which will give much more space for camping and for trailers and will leave more space for the vehicle display. This is why we have gone for the later date, as the field is not available in June.

More info available in 2019 !
