The run will start from Hamworthy Sports Club at 10.00am and will take us through the lanes of Dorset to the Sixpenny Handley brewery where we will be served a substantial hog roast.

The charge for this will be £10.00 per head and will include complimentary teas / coffees and a tray bake dessert

I understand that the venue is very good and that the craft beers they produce are very good also.
Around 60 members met at Sammy Millers Motorcycle Museum for a coffee start to our 2018 Winter Road Run. After collection of our route booklet we set off on a 42 mile tour of the New Forest. At one time passing along the coast, with views of the Isle of Wight and the Solent, on to Lepe and through Beaulieu. We continued, following the picturesque route, to our lunch stop at the Empress of Blandings at Copythorne. We have used this great pub for our lunch stop on previous occasions and have never been disappointed with the food, drinks or service. After lunch we made our own way home. We thank Dave Bailey and George Parrott for again finding an interesting route and organising the day for us. We now look forward to the Spring Road Run which coincides with National Drive it Day. Our lunch stop on that run will be at the Sixpenny Handley Brewery where we will have a served Hog Roast.

This was an unusual meeting falling as it did on New Year’s Day. Attendance was down on the numbers that we normally see but we understand that, many of our members no doubt feeling slightly jaded after celebrating the night before. However we had arranged a skittle evening and this went ahead. It gave us the opportunity to have a little fun and also put in some needed practice for the forthcoming challenge match versus Dorset Historic Motor Club. For a number of years now we have been lucky enough to join DHMC at their club night and join in the skittles and is a very enjoyable evening. Our evening went well with Wendy Richmond Jones winning the game after three rounds of skittles. To complete the evening we had a game of ‘Killer’SkitWin1

Our Christmas lunch, again held at The Walhampton Arms, was very enjoyable. The weather was awful, raining and blowing a gale. The pub is situated on high ground and the wind was very evident. Having said that, many brave souls faced the weather and turned out. As usual, Natasha and Andy (mine hosts) looked after us very well, the food and atmosphere is always good. The raffle this year was extraordinary with 83 superb prizes on offer and raised £217.00 for our charity fund. We were again lucky to have another fantastic food hamper donated by Wendy and Dave Brooks, this was raffled off and made another £100 for the charity fund. For the past few years we have supported the Salvation Army Christmas Food Run Appeal with a collection of food and clothing. This year’s collection of donations was amazing to see and filled the back of my estate car when I delivered the items later that afternoon to Mary Randell. Mary has organised the food run for many years and is totally dedicated to helping the needy and homeless. The Walhampton Arms is already booked for 2018, the date being December 9th, please put a note in your diaries and join us if you can.
