June Monthly Follow Up Newsletter

Hi All

Now is the time to let me know (if you haven’t already) about coming on the Norfolk Drive, Helmingham and Kimbolton! I really need to know about Helmingham by the end of June, We still have capacity at Kimbolton.

Thursday 22nd June The Rising Sun, 7pm, 26 Wroxham Road, Coltishall, Norfolk, NR12 7EA

Our monthly get together for a pie and a pint, a bit further north and east this time to pick up section members in that part of the world. I look forward to seeing you there!

Sunday 25th June, Norfolk Drive 10am, start from Jimmy’s, Abbey Road, Old Buckenham, NR17 1PU, finish point, The Lighthouse Café, Lighthouse Cl, Hunstanton, Norfolk, PE36 6EL

Our man of the maps, Malcom, has worked his magic on another route from A to B. He always finds some great driving roads! Navigation is via tulip roadbook (not as scary as it sounds) and great fun. Let me know if you plan to come so we can print enough roadbooks. If you intend to have a coffee, bacon bap etc, the café opens at 9am, so be a bit earlier than 10am, we won’t start leaving for Hunstanton till 10.30 ish!

Now is the time to let me know about coming on the Norfolk Drive, Helmingham and Kimbolton!


I have booked a stand for 35 cars for Kimbolton and 30 for Helmingham. A number of events seem to be changing their booking systems. Kimbolton wants you all to book online, but then you have to tell me you’re coming, then I have to confirm the number going, and book a space big enough! (Comment has been made re last year’s stand being undersize!) Tickets are available now, but remember to tell me you’ve booked so I can book your slot on the stand. See Below:

Sunday 16th July Kimbolton Country Fayre  10am-4pm, Kimbolton Castle, Huntingdon, Cambs. PE28 0EA
