Hi to you all,
September has been quiet for us. The monthly meet planned as a visit to the 'East Anglian Practical Classic & Sports car show' at the Oaksmere Hotel, Brome was cancelled by the organisers as the field was said to be waterlogged. Having visited the Goodwood Revival the weekend before – which was also a wet event – we can understand the issue with saturated car parks.

However, despite mixed weather (glorious blue sky in the mornings and rain showers in the afternoon) the Goodwood Revival was again a stunning event. Steve spent Saturday as a ‘punter’ and then assisted on the A S Motorsport stand on Sunday. As usual the crowds were treated to some superb races with some very desirable and rare cars being ragged around the circuit. The support act was the many side shows and attractions making it an event for all the family – in a time warp fashion.
Definitely a must for next year.

The A S Motorsport stand attracted a steady flow of visitors and enthusiasts, keen to find out more. Andy & Joy were kept busy all weekend.

Even though you may be avoiding the inevitable, Christmas is only a few short months away now.
Which brings us to the subject of our annual Christmas Evening Meal, does anyone have a suggestion for a venue that we may not have tried before? We are tentatively looking at somewhere between Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds but if there’s a special recommendation you have, please let us know (and, of course, if you plan on coming). We’re conscious that we need to book this up fairly soon.

So, for this month’s meet on Sunday 15th October @ 12:00, we’re off to West Suffolk
this month. We’ve put a pin in the map, consulted the good book and chosen The Cock, Lavenham Road, Brent Eleigh, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 9PB
http://www.suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/94 and 01787 247371. Don’t forget to phone and book if you intend to eat. Sadly, we won’t be able to join you, let us know how you get on.

We’ll continue to populate the ‘3rd Sunday’ calendar with interesting pubs to visit in our usual ‘On Tour’ format.
If you have a recommendation or favourite venue, please let us know.
November 2017 - East Suffolk
December 2017 – Christmas meal
January 2018 - West Norfolk
February 2018 - East Norfolk
March 2018 - West Suffolk

We’re always on the lookout for pub recommendations and event info for 2018 – if you have a recommendation or favourite venue, please let us know.
