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 !
