Update

A quick update to let you know what’s going on;

  1. We are extending all current memberships by 6 months, for free, back-dated to 1st of February.
  2. With regret, we have cancelled the Summer Sisters event. However, we are hopeful that we will be able to run the September Seven Sisters event in some form.
  3. We have cancelled the upcoming Mannington play-day.
  4. We are hoping to be able to start running green-lane days again soon, please check our facebook page or contact us for more info.
  5. We are looking into ways to safely re-start play days as soon as possible.

That’s it for now, as ever – please stay safe, and be excellent to each other.

Coronavirus

Yes it’s the inevitable coronavirus update post – here’s what we’re doing:

  1. Listening to the official advice – if the government recommends not doing things like events or social gatherings, we won’t do them.
  2. Keeping an eye on things – the situation is changing daily at the moment so we’re reacting accordingly.
  3. Letting you know what’s going on – we aren’t clearing our calendar just yet but as it’s inevitable some events & gatherings will be cancelled or postponed we’ll update you here and on our facebook page as far ahead as we can.

For now, stay safe, wash your hands, and be excellent to one another.

Maybe use the time at home to fix that oil leak you’ve been meaning to get round to…

2020 Looking Good!

This year is already shaping up to be a busy one – the events calendar has play days and socials as well as other Land Rover and classic car related events.

We’ve got our two Welsh Weekends – Summer Sisters and Seven Sisters – ready to go and taking online bookings now!

We’re hoping to organise a few more social events and outings to shows and the like too so do keep an eye out!

A busy October – club news!

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

Events

The next club “pub” social is on Thursday 4th October at the Empress of Blandings, everyone’s welcome to pop along and have a chat whether you’re a current member or not.

On Sunday 14th we’re back at the popular Bunny Lane site in Romsey for a play-day.

The weekend of the 27th-28th we’re off to Wales for a weekend of playing at the huge and brilliant Walters Arena, a site with something for everyone and every vehicle. You can book tickets & camping online now!

Volunteers needed!

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.

Two new events for you!

We’ve just added two new events to the club calendar;

The first is a simple social gathering on Portsdown Hill for a burger and a mingle, the second is a leisurely visit to Dorset for some green laning and camping on the weekend of the 7th-9th September.

We hope to see you at one or both!

And of course at the club social tomorrow too!
