The day began by meeting at Chilham Car park. It was a bit chilly, tho the walkers that were there looked very well wrapped up! Once we had our sheets we set off one by one on our 20.6 mile journey to Macknades. The journey was not eventful, winding our way through Chartham Hatch, Dargate, Druidstone, Graveney and into Faversham to our destination. Almost everyone arrived following the directions except Jim and Josie who had a detour to Whitstable! During the run we had a photo sheet of vario...Read Full Post »

Nine cars attended, after winning best club stand last year the pressure was on to repeat our success, with an array of flags & Teddy Bears, always popular with the children, and all the members on best behaviour (who am I kidding) low & behold we did it again, well done everyone. The show coincided with Capel having it's annual Garage sale, so we could all enjoy looking and buying other peoples pre loved items.

Keeping away from motorways to our overnight stop at Chartres, Via Pacy-sur-Evre & generally heading south avoiding the larger towns. Chartres like many larger French towns in this area, have a light show in the Old Town throughout the summer, we had to sit outside in a bar in the Old Town Square waiting for darkness which arrived at 23.00pm and a bottle of wine later, but it was well worth the wait, following blue lights set in the ground it took us about a...Read Full Post »

With free coffee, tea & biscuits on the ferry, on the 13th May 9 cars drove down to Laon, checking the weather forecast that looked awful, we ended up with a beautiful few days with temperatures in th 20's. Based at a Campanile, with good parking & easy access, though never enough staff even though they knew they were full up, on the Saturday with 1000 cars to register I thought it would be very chaotic, but it only took 10-15 mins to get parked & registration was v...Read Full Post »

A good turnout of 8 cars from the club went to Motors by the Moat, with the best day of the year so far, blue skies all day and being parked really close to the Moat. One of those days where after sitting & talking most of the day, at 4.30 we were still not really ready to leave. The Castle was well worth a visit much better than expected. A fabulous day out. Have added some more photos to website.

Drive it day this year was a slight improvement on last year, in as much as it did not actually rain all day, but it was still cold & grey especially on top of the Lookout, and we did have sleet when we arrived in Rye. Kevin organised the day suggesting meeting in Rye & spending some time visiting the old town & having a coffee or as in the case of Jayne & Mary a glass of wine. Then a run back across country to the Dog & Duck at Plucks Gutter...Read Full Post »
