Hi All 

I trust you are all well and are starting to get some sun on those Alfas!

April saw a jolly gathering at the Queens Head at Hawkedon, its not the easiest place to get too but worth it when you do! It was a good turnout, especially as we lost three on the night to work and illness. Image below.

It’s a ticketed event for £10.79, the usual C&M price for guaranteed entry and parking when owners arrive (one ticket per car).
