Rowlands Wait Touring Park, Bere Regis, Dorset, BH20 7LP will once again be our base for this long weekend. It’s a first class woodland site with all mod cons. There are plenty of B&Bs in the village if you prefer.

Friday is barbecue night - bring what you like to eat and drink and John will fire up the barbie.

Saturday and Sunday will be spent driving the lovely Dorset lanes, visiting places of interest, possibly even swimming off Studland Beach.

Entry form was in the July newsletter. If you make a last minute decision to come, you need to contact Hilary Fitch so that she knows you will be arriving - otherwise she won’t be able to book you a meal at the pub on Saturday night.

East Of Bristol Lunch Meet

Butchers Arms, 22 Bath Road, Bristol BS30 9DG on A431 halfway between Longwell Green and Hanham.

The pub opens at 1pm. It is one of the few remaining "old style" pubs and lunchtime is usually very quiet and for that reason rolls need to be ordered the day before - ring Lee or Zena on 0117 960 7285 (no other bar food available because the pub has no kitchen.

If you are a new member or have only had your Seven for a short time, this is a great place to get advice on anything to do with running and maintaining your car, many of us have over 50 years experience with Sevens.
