Our plan this year was to have an easy day for our first event, and as it happens the sun was with us,
after a very stormy night on Saturday.
We met at the ‘Kings Head’ at Redlynch near Whiteparish, West Grinstead, Whadden, Alderbury and back via Downton for coffee at 10.30pm. There was a good turn out of 11 cars, including David Tofts freshly restored 100/6 making its maiden club appearance, and looking remarkably smart (not a Sprite in sight, so where are you all?).
The time was spent chatting and eventually after signing the MSA form, folk went off for the 19 mile planned drive. The route went through Downton. The countryside was superb in the sun, with primroses and bluebells adorning the banks of the roads. All returned safely, and the pre ordered lunch was served at 12.45pm, and proved a hearty feast which was much enjoyed. Gradually the car park emptied, and we all had an enjoyable drive home. Keep an eye on the New Forest events programme, there are a lot of events to enjoy this year, and we hope to see you out and about!
