SVVS visit the Caterham Model Flying Club

          :: [SVVS visit the Caterham Model Flying Club - May 2019 ]::
Few weeks ago we had a very interesting talk from our members Brian Rice and James Gordon who are also a members of the Caterham & District Model Flying Club. They had brought with them some of the model aircraft, some of which were literally quite enormous taking two people to carry them. As a result of this talk, the Club invited the members of our Society to visit their little airfield to see the models in action. Some had petrol engines,  some electric, and some were gliders. 

SVVS Lunchtime Meet - Dog & Duck, Outwood

        :: [SVVS Lunchtime Meet - Dog & Duck, Outwood - May 2019 ]::
Now a regular date for one of our outside meetings to a venue that is our winter HQ. The refurb of the Dog & Duck has been great, and the new management has provided a new modern restaurant with lovely grub, so now the place is absolutely  packed out, helped by our 17 proper vehicles including a number of moderns. Seems the place for showing infrequently seen  or newly refurbished vehicles like the petite Fanny Barnett two stroke just finished being rebuilt by our Chas Moody. 

SVVS Treasure Hunt 2019

      :: [ SVVS Treasure Hunt  &  Black Horse, Hookwood - April 2019 ] ::
The Treasure Hunt combines the regular April pub meet at the Black Horse in Hookwood, with the FHBC's Drive-it-Day. This Treasure Hunt was organised by last year's winners Liz and Bruce Glover. The  Hunt is a case of driving to a specified location, parking, and walking to find the answers to clues defined on the questionnaire. The Run started at Denbies Vineyard. Eventual Winners were Christine and Ian Scott, and 'The Spirit of the Event' prize to Bozi Mohacek and the AA-assisted XJS !

SVVS Dinner - Reigate Manor Hotel, Reigate

        :: [ SVVS Dinner - Reigate Manor Hotel, Reigate - April 2019 ] ::
Reigate Manor Hotel was again the venue for the 2019 Annual SVVS Dinner, and was attended by 67 people. Not much could be faulted with the quality of the meal and the efficiency of the service. We were lucky to have polar explorer Patrick McIntosh as our Guest Speaker who gave a Video presentation on being the first man with triple cancer to reach the South Pole ! His chosen charity was St Catherine's Hospice for whom we raised by raffle, and later buckets, an impressive total of 524.65 !!

SVVS Lunchtime Meeting at the Sportsman, Mogador

    :: [ SVVS Lunchtime Meeting - Sportsman, Mogador - March 2019] ::
This is a new venue we are trying out this year, one which is located at the northern perimeter of our catchment area. The Sportsman is an eatery type of pub built on the site of a historic hunting lodge believed used by Henry VIII while out hunting. The pub is nearly impossible to find being at the end of a lane leading to the Downs. Hence pub was packed and carpark overflowing. Notwithstanding, we had a relatively reasonable turnout of about 20 vehicles, of which 15 were proper cars. 

SVVS Lunchtime Meeting at the Cock at Headley

    :: [ SVVS Lunchtime Meeting - Cock Inn, Headley - February 2019] ::
The Cock at Headley was put back in our programme after a couple of years following its sudden shut-down just before one of our due meetings there. Now under new management, and dog friendly, the pub seems busier then ever with the car park and pub packed out with dining families.  Weather was iffy having rained and was blowing an icy wind. Pretty poor turnout of only seven cars especially from the 'westeners' who had been asking for a venue in their neck of the woods.

SVVS New Year's Meeting, Reigate

:: [ New Year's Day Lunchtime - Beehive, Woodhatch - January 2019 ] ::
New Year's Day 2019 was, for a change, a normal winter's gray day with no rain or snow, no Beast from the East and with nice not slippery/dirty dry roads. This resulted in a relatively reasonable turnout of 15 proper cars and a couple of moderns. New additions here were a French registered Caterham Cosworth Seven, and a Sunbeam Tiger Coupe; as well as a Audi looking Dodge? A person much missed and a regular at this event was Pam Gorman who had sadly passed away during the Christmas break following a prolonged illness.  Our sympathies to Mike.
