Winter Breakfast - Saturday 25th November
Having enjoyed the meal on Friday evening, we really mastered our organisational
skills...........and the following morning almost 30 met up for the First Winter breakfast of this 2017/18 winter !!
Pensthorpe proved a superb venue for the breakfast which is a replacement for our Farmers Market
attendances and displays. They are indeed great - but during winter.......well, we are only human !
This breakfast was really well supported, and combined with the previous evening meant that
close on 70 of us got together.
There will not be a December Breakfast due to Xmas,
so the next one will be in January, watch your e-newsletter for details.
Charity Fund Raising Evening - Friday 24th November
The Club held this annual Event by kind arrangement with Q's of Fakenham.
An excellent turnout of almost 40 enjoyed the Quiz night together with a good meal
and all in a very convivial atmosphere.
All in all a most enjoyable evening, and with a big boost to our Fund raising.
Our thanks to Tracey at Q's, to all her colleagues and to the staff.
Regrettably, due to a few problems it has not been possible to publish reports of our busy schedule
through August, September and October. However, the many Events arranged were well attended and
overall it was another very enjoyable summer schedule.
McAully Flying Group - Sunday 16th July
Still on an aeronautical theme, we were delighted to be asked to join the 60th Anniversary
of the McAully Flying Group - based at Little Snoring Airfield. We congratulate the group on
their aircraft, and also their arrangements for such an excellent day of celebration.
A good number of our members took their cars to see the lovely aircraft, and some enjoyed
a flight over the surrounding countryside before indulging in BBQ and drinks.
Flixton Air museum - Sunday 11th June
21 of us in 10 cars took this trip - we all met at the Buck Inn, adjacent to the museum, for a superb carvery lunch.
We then parked up outside the main hangar and set off to see the huge range of exhibits indoors and out.
There are around 65 aircraft on display, as well as numerous other exhibits including WW11 wreckage,RAF bomber command,
coastal command and air sea rescue, underground control bunker, airborne weapons, flight training area, Ken Wallis Wing etc.
We also enjoyed refreshments in the NAAFI whilst listening to 1940's musical recordings - what nostalgia!
Pat Pearce run / Drive-it-day 23rd April 2017
Another superb Event. Raising funds for the Fakenham Junior School Bell appeal, we had 25 cars on a great route.
With 50 of us booked in for lunch at the Banningham Crown before coffee and cakes at Pensthorpe (get the drift ?), and some terrific weather
it truly was a great day out. Thanks to Ray Davies for sending some great photos.
Fakenham Farmers Market - 25th March 2017
Our first Farmers Market display of the year, and the weather was superb.
Loads of member cars were present, and in particular Laurie's Citroen attracted much attention - and rightly so.
Cake and coffee outside the Bistro in the sunshine plus some great cars .........oh yes, a good Saturday !
Reed Cutting & Management - Club Night 22nd March 2017
Club night in March was a scintillating (ok - inhouse joke !) talk, powerpoint show & hands-on session.
Committee member Mark Randell put on a terrific show covering his life time experience of this
topic from Reed bed management to harvesting and thatching - all of which is such a strong part of local heritage.
A very interesting & memorable learning opportunity which was enjoyed by all present.
Drive to White Horse, Holme next Sea for lunch - Sunday 19th March 2017
A superb turnout of 18 cars and 37 of us was complimented by some lovely spring weather.
This was a great outing, and it was ideal for shaking off any winter cobwebs from the cars during the 20 mile drive.
Everything was pre-booked at the White Horse where the food, service and convivial atmosphere
was thoroughly enjoyed as Club members put the world to rights !
