Our gathering at Fidlers Field on the 26th May never happened ...the field was waterlogged! Instead, members who had booked were invited to meet at the Red Barn at Blindly Heath, just a couple of miles away. Thankfully, the rain that had made this May one of the wettest ever, stopped the day before our gathering. I was early to arrive at the Red Barn, but was beaten again by Martin Lloyd and Chas Moody! The gathering hadn't been fully booked, so I was hoping those who had booked would all attend. Although a relatively small gathering of just 13 proper vehicles, the variety and quality on display did not disappoint. Three new members arrived, Simon and Janice Hollobone in their recently restored '73 Ford Granada GXL, Dereck Tickner-Wand in his '70 MG Midget and Peter Selby riding an '82 Moto Guzzi, plus several unseen-before vehicles belonging to existing members, so plenty to entertain us for the evening. Dick and Liz Johnson arrived in a '37 Morris 14-6 Laundelet, minus the bonnet side panels …apparently they're receiving a bit of restoration. I think everyone would agree that Andy Hall stole the show when he arrived in his recently restored 1935 Frazer Nash Shelsley. We were all admiring it's pristine condition when Andy started to dismantle the Nash's interior, pulling out seats and floor! This was to reveal the amazing sight of the complex chain drive to the rear axle. New Member Simon Hollobone lifted the bonnet of his Granada to reveal what looked like a brand new engine bay! The same could be said about potential new member, Nigel Worton's '64 Land Rover. An excellent evening that was well worth organising. Thanks to all those who attended.      Malcolm Ward
