Friday 13 September - Tuesday 17 September - Shitterton Run
- Hilary Fitch

Shitterton Run 19

Most people are now taking advantage of the optional days of Friday 13 until Tuesday 17 and really enjoying their time in Dorset. Just indicate on the entry form which days you would like to do.

CAMPING – At Rowlands Wait Touring Park, Rye Hill, Bere Regis, Dorset, BH20 7LP. Same place as before. You can also have an electric hook up to your tent, motor home or caravan, but if you require this you will be in a different field to the rest of us.

B & B – Many and varied in the village – Tourist Information Centre

FRIDAY – Arrive any time to suit yourself ready for a barbecue in the evening. Please bring your own food and drink. Club members who do not have their Austin Seven on the road are very welcome to join in with this part of the run. If you arrive by lunchtime we will do a picnic on the site and probably visit the nearby town of Wareham in the afternoon. There is lots to see in Wareham and some pleasant walks – or you can sit on the quay and watch boats go by, eat Purbeck ice cream, eat cream tea, do beer.

SATURDAY – At this early stage nothing yet confirmed. However, under close planning is the 180 foot tall Cerne Abbas Giant located north of Dorchester, or we may stay more local and visit the Blue Pool and Tea House. This is a disused flooded clay pit surrounded by a 25 acre park of heath, woodland, gorse and trees with many footpaths to choose from. The Tearoom was built in 1935 and retains many features including the original pine flooring. Their museum is also worth visiting and traces the history of local clay mining which was much in demand by the pipe makers of the 17th century.

SUNDAY – If time permits tradition demands that we visit Durlston Castle for coffee overlooking the sea. Then onwards to a pub lunch, followed by a good swim in the sea if the weather is nice enough. The walkers amongst us like to explore the sand dunes behind the beach itself. Don’t forget to bring your National Trust card if you have one.

Please send in your entry form (at the back of our July newsletter) because if you don’t Hilary and John Finch won’t know you are coming and won’t have booked you a meal at the local pub on Saturday night.

East Of Bristol Lunch Meet

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

The pub opens at 1pm. It is one of the few remaining "old style" pubs and lunchtime is usually very quiet and for that reason rolls need to be ordered the day before - ring Lee or Zena on 0117 960 7285 (no other bar food available because the pub has no kitchen.

If you are a new member or have only had your Seven for a short time, this is a great place to get advice on anything to do with running and maintaining your car, many of us have over 50 years experience with Sevens.
