Next Club Outing – Sheffield Park and Garden – Sunday 8 November
Sorry for the short notice. We will be visiting Sheffield Park Gardens. There are two choices of travel. Firstly by car. Lets meet at the entrance at 11:00 am. The other option is to either get the train to East Grinstead or drive to East Grinstead and then pick up the steam train on the Bluebell Railway to Sheffield Park. Info on trains times and prices can be found on bluebell-railway.com. As some may be planning to take the train and will arrive later than 11:00am I suggest we all meet up at the tearoom for lunch/coffee at 1:00 pm. If you would like to come please put you name and mobile number on the list on the notice board at the Club.

London to Brighton Veteran Car Run – Sunday 1 November
This annual event began in 1896 when the law requiring motorists to have a man bearing a red flag preceding their cars was abolished. Car owners celebrated by destroying their flags and setting off for Brighton in the ‘Emancipation Run’. The first organised run took place in 1993 and today the event attracts owners of veteran cars built pre-1905 from all over the world. The first car leaves Hyde Park at sunrise (around 6.45am) and the hundreds of drivers taking part attempt to cross the finish line in Madeira Drive, Brighton, before 4.30pm. You need a pass to enter the car enclosure but spectators are very welcome to watch the motors gathering as they rev up for the off.
