Been mentioned before... how about a change of scenery - breakfast meet up at Ian and Suzanne's place, in Witham.
Unit 10 Enterprise Court
If we get lots of response we can arrange for a coffee van to arrive, hot drinks and breakfast cake stuff...
I've been out of work for about 18 months now, and nothing at all is making me want to get back into an office (if that's even a thing any more).
Since I had my first Clio, some 12 years ago, I've been into cleaning it 'properly' - no yellow sponges, leathers, or sloshing buckets of dirty water...
Few people mentioned yesterday that we haven't invaded North Weald for a while, so how about trying 19th May for a breakfast catch up ?
Would like to do one a month through the summer but lets get the first one out the way and see how we go.
Tags don't seem to work too often so apologies in...
Went here last year for a couple of ace weekend breakfast meets with #GenPub and also a CS meet last summer one evening which seemed popular..
Food's good, locations's fairly easy/central for most..
With the success of last weeks evening meet/ dinner/ chat/ waffle/ get bitten by horseflies/ stand around in the car park in the dark for hours afterwards at The Hare, lets try for a second successful invasion in Billericay this time ?
The Dukes Head, Laindon Common Rd, Little Burstead...
Wonder if we can get a monthly meet for the summer months going, see if we can get a few oldies out of the woodwork.

Few of you have been here before for Saturday breakfast car meets they host...
Friend of mine owns many weird and wonderful cars, and inherited his village car show about a decade back. I've been for the last few years and it's a nice few hours looking at cool cars and bikes, with a BBQ and beer keg on tap donated by the village pub !
It's essentially on the...

Was a good, if not slightly frustrating evening at Snett..
Someone dumped fluids through the first section on the sighters .. couple of red flags and a full paddock meant track time was a bit lacking and busy when it was green ! Still I think everyone from here got home in one piece.

I've lost/sold/misplaced my Kestral Das6. Literally no idea where it is..
