Somerset Area July News

Despite some sometimes damp and dreary weather this past month we have been out and about enjoying our Triumphs. The last few weeks have not been without their challenges though and various cars (and sometimes the owner) have required fixing. As I write this Harry is under his Herald and I am trying to to get my Mk 3 Spitfire rebuild to the point where we can turn the engine over. Having sold my 13/60 Herald I must now get the Spit on the road….I just wish there was a book where you could be told in which order to reassemble a car that you have taken apart. It would save so much of the time spent undoing things that you thought were already completed. Nothing is ever straightforward it seems, but we are constantly amazed at the breadth and depth of other people’s knowledge about our cars and the generosity with which they are prepared to give their time in sharing it.
Some of us drove down to Pecorama in Beer, Devon at the end of May and fortunately, on that particular occasion the only breakdown was on the little steam train - and that was somebody else’s problem! It was lovely to see so many other members there from different areas, getting together with their Triumphs and - of course - our very own CoM member, Martin. By the time you read this report we will also have been to Lynton and to visit Avon area at their auto jumble evening in June and judging by the way things are going with our cars at the moment we will have had a long shopping list. Other forthcoming events will be advertised on our Facebook page, just search for ‘TSSC Somerset Area’. 
In addition to our monthly social at the Apple Tree Inn, we are hoping to organise an extra social once a month, just for the fun of it,  taking in different parts of this very wide and big county of ours. It is a good excuse for a drive out in our cars (not that we need one) but we are also hoping it will make us more accessible as a club. We are on the lookout for suitable locations across Somerset, so if you know of a good destination with decent parking please let us know and we will happily add it to the list. We’ll put dates and venues on Facebook, so keep an eye out for them.
In the meantime you will receive a very warm welcome at our usual meeting on the second Thursday of each month, the next one being on Thursday 11th July at the aforesaid Apple Tree Inn at West Pennard, Glastonbury, BA6 8ND. The food and beer are excellent!
Harry
