Welcome to 2019 a much better start weather wise than 2018,giving us all a chance to get out in our lovely cars. We kicked off the year with a visit to The Mercure Hotel near Kidderminster in January for our Post-Christmas Lunch. There was a super turn out, with many of us managing to arrive in style. The Hotel took care of us well, providing a lovely lunch in a great setting.
The Annual Dinner had a fantastic number of members this year making their way to Haughton Hall in Shropshire. It has been quite a while since we visited here, but they really did us proud. We had a lovely room, laid out beautifully, with an amazing menu which suited many different dietary needs at a fabulous price! We were so comfortable none of us wanted to go home.
During April, we spent our Spring Weekend in Betsy-y-Coed, Wales at the Waterloo Hotel. We took over 9 rooms, a splendid amount for such a small club. The weather forecast was not great for the Saturday, but this didn't deter several members from bringing their proper cars, well done. It's such a lovely relaxed time with members socialising during and pre-meal times, but feeling able to go off and explore during the day. This year several destinations were visited, Penrhyn Castle, Bangor, Conwy, Blaenau Ffestiniog deep slate mine and Porthmadog. These visits weren't without some problems, as the weather had brought a tree down on the Blaenau Ffestiniog line so caused delays, the main line had suffered a land slide over winter so was using a bus, and heavy rain, snow and hail made driving interesting. We all returned with many stories to tell, I think the overall winners were the cafes.
As we were away on our weekend for the official St.Georges day drive we are celebrating this now, in May. We're keeping our fingers crossed for good weather as we explore the beautiful English countryside, before sitting down to a lunch with our friends where we can discuss all the excitement of the drive.
