[ S V V S Evening
Meeting - The Bletchingley Arms - July 2018 ] ::
Bletchingley Arms ('The
Plough' as was) on the A25 in the
village of Bletchingley has been one of our most popular venues for an
SVVS evening meeting. These photos were taken by Bozi Mohacek just as it was
becoming dark so some have had to be lightened for easier viewing.

The Plough, re-branded Bletchingley Arms, is opposite the dreaded speed
camera on the A25 with lots of passing traffic. Our visit pulls in the
general public and so is also good for the Pub! When the weather is fine
it draws our best, or second best, attendance of Members of the year.
time was glorious, being the continuation of this year's heatwave of not
having any rain whatsoever for over seven weeks.
They had not cut the meadow of the 'grassy knoll' as the grass war
brown and dying and the earth below was utterly solid and rock hard. No hesitation this year
of cars going onto the grass for fear of sliding or bogging down !!
Our Membership Secretary Chas Moody reported that he recorded 60 Members
present with 49 vehicles of interest but there were at least ten
vehicles belonging to non-members, some of whom took membership forms
and may join our ranks. The hotrod brigade, which normally join us on
the night were late and only bought three cars! Anyway there were some 60
separate vehicles of interest present at the meeting, some seen for the
first time, and individually pictured below.
