Huge thanks to everyone that attended Seven Sisters 2019. We had a fantastic turnout and despite the weather, the event has to be one of the best yet!
We had a great group of people with plenty of light hearted banter especially towards Chris Powell. Chris’s interesting parking techniques Saturday morning tested the experience and knowledge of our marshals. (Checkout the photos of the red Discovery 2)The recovery was successful and handled safely by all. This hill will now been known as Chris(‘s) Hill 🙂
In other news, we had a few breakages and the most impressive one has to go to Josh Creffield. Josh managed to blow the rear diff in his Discovery 2 Saturday afternoon. They began the diff replacement at 4:30pm. By 7:10pm Josh was back up and running ready for the night event.
We had a very impressive variety of vehicles from Freelander’s and Suzuki’s through to heavily modified L200’s and some awesome challenge trucks! Of course not to forget all the varieties of Land Rover Discovery’s, Defender’s and a smart looking Range Rover Classic
We would also like to mention our regular Summer & Seven Sisters attendees Neil, David, Adrian, Gavin and Dale, who’s continued support over the years at all our events is always appreciated.
We are slowly sorting through all our photos and videos from the weekend. Feel free to send your photos into firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on our Instagram and Facebook page for all to see.
Thanks again and watch this space for our 2020 dates!

Our Green Lane Officer Arran has set up a Shire WhatsApp group for green laning. This will be used alongside the usual channels to organise green lane days and weekends. Some of the events will be spur of the moment / short notice trips and as some people don’t tend to visit the Facebook group, its a quick and easy way to communicate and discuss green laning events.
Contact Arran on firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the group.
Big thanks to everyone who made the trek to Wales for our Seven Sisters off-road weekend, it was a blast and we hope to see you again next time!

After a bit of a break over the summer hols we’ve got a busy October coming up!

Some of you may have seen on our Facebook page that some of the committee are intending to step down at the next AGM in May;
Christine, our long-serving / long-suffering Club Secretary has decided to hang up her notebook after more years than it would be polite to count. A huge thanks to Christine for all she’s done for the club over the years.
Gary and Kim Clark are also stepping down from their roles as Events Officer and Newsletter Editor / PR respectively due to work and family commitments. Again, a huge thanks to both of them for their input to the club.
This does mean we have some positions vacant on the committee if you’d like to get involved and help out – it doesn’t need a huge commitment to make a big difference to the running of the club so please do contact us if you’re interested in helping out in any way at all.
