Lincolnshire Group – August 2019 Report
Sue & I recently had the pleasure of attending the Yorkshire Group’s annual BBQ hosted at Nic & Sue Turley’s home near Halifax. The BBQ was preceded by a scenic. and at times challenging, 20 mile run taking in the hills of both Lancashire & Yorkshire. It was good to meet up with old friends and we will be seeing them all again in late August when we take part in their annual Heather & Honey run. This will be the first test of my shoulder after my operation last May. Fingers crossed!
We had the usual uncertainty over the weather but in the end the Gods were smiling, very blustery but not pouring with rain all the time!. Thirty seven members bought tickets and it was very encouraging that some new members attended and made themselves known. We were also pleased to welcome David Booth our national Chairman and his wife Valerie. He was presented with a signed limited edition of our Lincolnshire Group Golden Jubilee Book. There is one thing about Austin folk they are all very friendly and everyone is an expert on all things Seven! Ande Malone was involved in taking names & menu choices for the end of season run which starts at Belton House garden centre and finishes with Sunday luncheon at The King’s Head, Navenby.( 26 already signed up ) I was promoting both the October coach trip and the excellent dvd that Paul Bradley has produced [£5] which takes in many of our events over the last few years. If you wish either a coach place or a dvd then let me know
As usual the raffle was a great success with prices being allocated amid much hilarity.
