And so begins another year.
A hardy group turned up at Aldeburgh on New Years Day, though not all linked up, chip shop queue was about 40 minutes, fairly standard!
Last week the committee had a get together, we have some new venues, we are pushing out to the further edges of the section, so have a look we may be nearer to you. Do come along an give us a try!
We have a very busy series of events this year, in some new areas and venues, plus some Sunday morning Car and Coffee meets which are getting very popular, we also have a major clash in September with three on the same day, let me know your choices! See below;
