A huge thanks to all who turned out for our end of year “Cold turkey” play day at Mannington. We had a great turnout, and a grand time was had by almost everyone – we’re not sure if the guys stuck in the ice-cold pond were having fun or not, but it looks like they were providing entertainment for those stood on dry land!
Here’s just a couple of the many photos from the day which are already up on our Facebook group:
So with 2017 just a few days away, here’s a couple of dates for your shiny new calendar:
It’s that time of year, and our membership secretary is incredibly busy (some lame excuse about rennovating a house) so if you are waiting for a membership application or renewal to be processed please be patient – it WILL get done!
If you’re planning on attending our post-Christmas play-day and your membership card has expired or you haven’t had one yet, please just contact us ASAP and we can make sure your name is on our list.
We have recently been approached by the organisers of “Tracks Across the Field” which is a Vintage tractor working weekend in Froxfield, Petersfield on the 20th & 21st August.
The weekend displays and exhibits approximately 100-120 tractors over the weekend.
They also have a large field with horse ploughing, horticultural machines, beer tent and trade stands and much more for the whole family to enjoy.
Shire Land Rover Club will be on display all weekend and members are welcome to join us, either during the day, or for the camping as well.
Non-members are welcome to come along, join or re-join the club, and get stuck in! This will also give you another opportunity to purchase your club merchandise and stickers!
The event is located in Froxfield, Hampshire, just opposite the Trooper Inn Pub (GU32 1BD)
If you are interested in coming along to join in the club display please contact us.
The Shire Land Rover Club supports the Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance as our “nominated” charity, but there are also individual members raising money for charity, we’d love you to show your support for them:
First off, our long-standing club treasurer Henry has had his amazing beard for 40 years, but is offering to shave it off if we can raise £1000 to be shared equally between the Royal British Legion and The West of England School for Blind Children (WESC).
Have a look at his daughter’s campaign for a clean-shaven Henry here:
Secondly, Shire LRC member Daan and some friends have decided to enter the Croatia Trophy 2016, running from 27th of April until May 5th. They are raising money for Cancer Research UK. They have chosen this charity because Mark, Daan’s co driver, lost his mother at the age of 17 to cancer, and exactly 1 year ago, Daan’s uncle Herman passed away having lost the battle with it. We can all think of examples in our family, friends colleagues etc.
Their just giving page is here – please show your support:
Well! I think we can safely say that Brick Kiln was a roaring success! We really hope we can secure further dates at the site – keep your eyes on the club calendar! In the meantime, if you have any photos, why not share them on our Facebook and Flickr groups?
As it’s now December, apparently it’s the “done thing” to start talking about Christmas and what is going on this month. First up is our Club Social on 3rd December at the Empress of Blandings. Secondly, it’s our get-away-from-the-turkey Play Day at Mannington on 27th December where you’ll make our Newsletter Editor very happy if you decorate your Landy with something Chrismassy!
