Please don’t come earlier

We would request that members respect current advice regarding social distancing and mask wearing in enclosed spaces.

At the time of writing, it is uncertain whether the Covid situation will allow us to open the Spares Shed during January or February and the situation may change at very short notice. If you are planning to attend on these dates, it is essential that you phone or email the Spares Secretary to check whether the shed will be open or not before committing to a wasted journey.

If you do attend, please make sure that you do not arrive until 10:30am. We are not open any earlier than this!

Any questions, please check with the Spares Secretary, Tim Reynolds - here

Wednesday 16 February - Avon Valley Railway
- June Price

Join us for an informal get together over a cup of coffee from 11.00 am onwards. Avon Valley Railway at Bitton Station (Bath Road, BS30 6HD) is on the A431 between Bristol and Bath. Come in your Austin or modern and possibly be tempted to stay on for some lunch.

Eric and Eileen Miles are long term volunteers at the Railway and some members may remember Eric had a quest to find and restore Fry’s Sentinel Engine No.7492, which is now housed at Bitton Station. If we are really lucky Eric may show us the engine now that it is fully restored.

If you are planning to join us, please let June Price know, so that she can get an indication of numbers.

Of course, all is subject to the Covid-19 guidelines that will be in place on the day!

June

 

Tuesday - Tuesday 7 - 14 June - North Devon Run

North Devon Run

North Devon Run is back on the BA7C calendar as an event for 2022.

The camp site we will be using is “Lynmouth Holiday Retreat” (previously known as Channel View).

The toilet/facilities blocks have been completely refurbished and are truly excellent. Unfortunately we will no longer get the fantastic rates we had in the past, but the new management have agreed to give us a 10% reduction with no additional charges for trailers or extra cars.

The event has been moved to start after the school half term and the two public holidays in that week. It will start from Tuesday 7th until Tuesday 14th June. This will make travelling to and from the event, plus the places we visit, much quieter than during the school half term. The campsite will also be far less crowded.

For members of the Bristol Austin 7 Club - to book a pitch you need to call Lynmouth Holiday Retreat directly on 01598 753349. Ask to talk to Lucy and state that you are part of the Bristol Austin Seven group to get your 10% discount and access to one of the reserved pitches. NB. The 10% discount only applies to pitches for Caravans, Motorhomes, Camper vans and tents.

Entry form in our January newsletter.
