Annual Dinner 2016 

Ascot House proved to be popular with the members again as food, service and atmosphere were very good. 

The club chairman made a special presentation of a Glass Trophy, Betty's voucher and a Christmas bouquet of flowers,

to John and Jan Wilkins in recognition of their contribution to the show over so many years.

Hazel Goulden was unable to be with us after being taken ill on the morning but a disbelieving Roger generated enough

excitement for both, when they won the Chairman's Jubilee Trophy.

Tony Homer finally got to announce and present the Member of the Year Trophy, after more than 20 years of collecting and counting the votes.

He must have done a good job because the winner, Sue Abbott, was SPEECHLESS!

Chairman's Comments

The first event of the New Year will be lunch at the Tiger Inn, Coneythorpe on the 29th January, 1.00 pm prompt.
Your committee have already outlined a programme through to June and after that the shows and runs follow almost weekly.
You will certainly have a lot of choices ( please keep your Distributor close to hand for reminders ) 
I have to thank your officials and committee for their support and wish the new chairman every success in 2017

  Harrogate MG 2017 - August 6th

The Show preparations are now well under way. Maureen has volunteered to organise the club stands instead of Ken.

The format will be the same as last year with the return of the Sea Cadets marching band and the fun dog show.

The forms for volunteering will be put out in April giving members plenty of opportunities to fill in all the gaps.


  Pollution Stickers in Paris

With Paris choked by the worst winter pollution in a decade, new rules will require all drivers, including British motorists,

to display a sticker showing their vehicle's emission levels.

From January 16, vehicles older than 20 years will be banned from driving within the Peripherique ring road between 8am and 8pm.

All other vehicles must display the sticker or face fines of 68 Euros.

You can apply for a sticker, which costs 3.60, at certificat-air.gouv.fr.

An English language version of the site will be available in the new year.
