Newbury May News

Congratulations to Mary & Dave who celebrate their Golden wedding anniversary this month. We all wish them well at an amazing 50 years of wedded bliss.
On the evening of Wednesday 13th March we met at the Cottage Inn, Bucklebury. We managed one classic as Ian arrived in his TR7 with Steve & Sue in Mini Clubman, Dave & Mary in Golf GT Sport & Malcolm & Josie in Zafira Turbo. It was lovely to welcome two new members Steve & Sue who own a Vitesse MK11 convertible in Royal Blue which they purchased last August. See picture.
Ian has organised a mystery pub lunch and a visit to the Crofton Beam engines on the 7th April. We are looking forward to the day out and hope the weather holds, I will report on how it went in the June edition of the Courier.
Dave’s Vitesse went through the MoT test with no advisories. The car is MoT exempt but Dave feels safer to continue with the test, I must admit it is a good check for your vehicle. Roy also took his Midge along to the same MoT centre and passed with no advisories. This was after the drama of the Midge breaking down, swapping the electronic ignition for points and condenser which seemed to work. However Roy broke down again on the way to the lunchtime meet at the Cottage. He is trying new copper plug leads and rotor arm so we wish him luck. Both cars created a lot of interest by the garage staff at the MoT station.
Our next meeting was on the evening of Wednesday 27th March at the Downgate in Hungerford.
It was good to welcome some visitors to our meeting, Tim in Volvo, Guy & Suzie, Spifire MK3, Peter & Karen TR7, Ian TR7, Andy in Vitesse, Nigel Classic Peugeot RCZ, Roy Fiesta, Dave & Mary Golf and Malcolm & Josie in Zafira.
The meeting was lively with everyone chatting and enjoying the beer. Mary organised a raffle. We will probably be using different venues from now on as go roaming meets. We will keep our Cottage Inn venue for the first meeting in each month.
March 30th was the lunchtime classic meet at the Cottage Inn, Bucklebury. Apologies to all who turned up on the 23rd March due to my mis-reporting in the Courier, I actually turned up myself in the GT6 and asked the landlord, ‘where is everybody’? The Cottage Inn meet is the last Saturday in each month, not the fourth.
So it was a re-run in the GT6 and good to see quite a few classic cars in the field. Steve, Sue and the two Grandchildren arrived in the Vitesse and enjoyed the pub fayre. Dave and Mary were in the Golf as the classics were locked away. We all enjoyed the variety of cars and a good chat sitting in the sunshine. I have included a picture of my GT6. Thanks to Dave for the pictures of Newbury cars on facebook.
Josie and I are going across to the Isle of Wight in the TR7 for the Isle of Wight Triumph weekend. There are a lot of shows on in the next couple of months so check the courier for these.
