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.

NOTE - new pub opening time of 2pm.
However, you can arrive in the carpark, say 20 minutes or so before.

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 a day or two before (not on the day) - ring landlord Lee on 0117 960 7285 or mobile 07771 881872 - you can also email leewheller@hotmail.com (it’s advisable to request a confirmation email back so that you know he has received your order). 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.

June

 

Sunday 7 June - Summer Picnic

Summer Picnic

This year we have decided to have a “Summer Picnic” instead of our usual annual static Rally.

The Summer Picnic will be an informal gathering with groups setting out from a range of start points and following scenic routes ultimately converging at the East Somerset Railway at Cranmore. Those who wish to make a weekend of it will be welcome to arrange camping nearby or stay at local B&Bs.

  • • There are no other additional activities there on the 7 June and the East Somerset Railway gives us a dedicated grassed parking area close to, and in view of, the main car park adjacent to the station.
  • • It offers a picnic area, children’s play area, and café, shop and toilet facilities, and the option to buy a ticket for unlimited travel on the steam train.
  • • There will be little organisation needed – no marquees, portaloos, catering etc and as there will be no judging, then numbered parking positions are not needed.
  • • There is a pub in the village, a couple of minutes walk away.
  • • There is a campsite fairly close which can be booked by individuals.
