Greetings Cumbria Group,

Newsletter 3/24.

Greetings Cumbria Group,

Well, the programme is in full swing now, just as it should be, I’m reminded as I write that it is only four weeks to the longest day of the year! Let’s make sure we continue t TR while the sun shines, just as we’ve been doing so far in 2024.

April saw us on a half day run to afternoon tea over at Bothel, and two weeks later we were off to Fort William, for our annual adventure stay. Consensus on this one – The best we’ve ever had, everything just came together like a dream – wonderful stuff, and would you believe the finest weather we have ever had. In between these two great CG days, some of us also flew the TR Flag at Dalemain for this years

FBHVC’s Drive-it-day, and whilst on the subject have you returned the very important FBHVC Questionnaire?

May saw us on what for us is a special day out, The Christine Wilson Memorial Run, once again this year organised by Steve and Ros, another great ‘Top Down’ TR’ing day, and checkout The Barbon Inn Facebook Page, our lunch stop, for lots of photo’s of our cars.
