A Message from Howard Randall

I am pleased to say that after 7 weeks I am out of hospital at last. May I thank all of you in North London & Eastern Area for all the cards & best wishes you sent to Ruth & me. I have now to recuperate but really hope to see you at some point at a weekend or THS. The motor home is looking very lonely!
Best wishes from Howard Randall

And on behalf of all NL&EA members I would like to wish Howard well in his recovery and I'm sure we are all looking forward to seeing him out with us again.

Easter at Clacton was a very successful event with plenty of visitors from across the Thames to make up for the poor attendance of North London members with 39 units in total.
Brian gave us an Easter quiz on Friday night with hits from 1975 (the founding year) being played by Matt.
On Saturday we were entertained by Georgia Pine who had everyone on the dance floor, with first prize for energetic dancing going to John Adams. We never knew he could move so well.
Sunday the entertainment in afternoon and evening was from Steve Perry who gave a great performance despite having come down with a cold that gave him difficulty.
The weather was cold but overall bright.
A big thank-you to all involved and, of course, to all those who attended.

Pictures are here and more here

The Cock Inn, Broom

posted 29 Mar 2015, 09:55 by Ralph Burtonshaw   [ updated 29 Mar 2015, 09:56 ]

The June meet at the Cock Inn, Broom was originally advertised as being a booked meet due to space restrictions but, after a site visit today' we see that the new owners have removed some former fencing and the rally field is now big enough for the restriction to be removed.
The Cock Inn is a quaint pub with "no bar" and a variety of real ales with a wonderful atmosphere.

They have a very good menu and get quite full at weekends so although you no longer need to book your place on the meet you may wish to book a place for a meal in the pub, either on arrival or by phone.

To help you take a look at their website which has their menu plus more information about the pub.
