Dave Newbery of the TR Register has kindly agreed to organise the event this year and it will be run in a different area near Earlswood Lakes.
From Sue Darbyshire:
Robin’s Christmas Gathering will take place on Friday 28th December from 12.30pm at a new venue this year as the Gate is temporarily closed due to a change of landlord.
The new venue is the Horseshoe in Shipston on Stour. It is located on the A3400 in the centre of town and has a large car park through the archway at the rear. They serve a range of meals and light bites at a very reasonable price so I hope you can join us in a suitable car weather permitting.
Here’s how to find The Horseshoe:
I have now made a provisional booking at the Bridgnorth Station on the Severn Valley Railway for Sunday, 14th April.
I think this is a good venue as there are not only the attractions of the SVR, but Bridgnorth offers plenty of interest for those who want an alternative to Morgans and oily machines.
The station has its own pub and catering and there are many food and water holes just over in the town.
I have been offered the use of a section of their overspill car park and reduced rates for train tickets.
Unfortunately, this is about the only date they can offer around the right time for our Opening Run so I hope it doesn’t cause any major clashes.
I am sure that many of you still have happy memories of Goggles and Gauntlets in Norfolk. Never ones to rest on our laurels Maria and I have been busy planning the 2019 event and are pleased to announce our plans.
You are coming to our home territory and we plan to make this event even better than previous ones. If you thought that was not possible believe us, it is ! The dates are now finalised as Thursday 30th May to Monday 3rd June 2019 so the usual four nights event.
The venue is the superb Best Western Passage House Hotel, Hackney Lane, Kingsteignton, Devon. TQ12 3QH in a stunning location on the banks of the River Teign estuary this hotel has all we need and more……. Awesome swimming pool, fitness room and beauty treatments too if you fancy. The large dining room overlooks the estuary too. Once again we have the advantage of an onsite pub, The Passage House Inn which is adjacent to and owned by the hotel, this worked very well in Norfolk and gave a massive choice of drinking space. A new idea is live music on the Saturday night after the dinner/awards and we have provisionally booked the function room for this so we can have a REAL party. Further details to follow later after we have auditioned a few groups.
See the link below for details.
We have negotiated a special deal that is not available direct with the hotel so you can only book the package through Maria who will handle all bookings and deal with the hotel.
Standard Double Room, breakfast and three course dinner each day Per Couple £120 p nt.
Single Occupancy Standard room, breakfast and three course dinner £80 per nt.
We believe this to be a really good deal.
It is possible to upgrade your room for an additional charge and more details of this will be sent to you after you have expressed interest.
What will we be doing over the weekend then ?
To enjoy the weekend fully you would need to be staying the four nights. We shall be driving along the English Riviera, taking in all the seaside towns on the way. We plan to visit the Dartmouth Steam Railway. A long drive over stunning Dartmoor is a must with a pub for lunch of course and perhaps a jail visit ? A scenic drive will take in the delights of Devon villages including Widecombe, famous for the annual Widecombe Fair, visit the Moretonhampstead Motor Museum and other nearby attractions with of course plenty of rest stops. The weekend will be full of action with plenty of time to relax too in what must be one of the most superb settings in Devon.
