Kennet Valley TR Group also welcomed new member David Jones, David has a navy TR4, red TR5, a yellow TR6 and a Stag, We look forward to seeing more of David and his partner in the future.
Mike also reminded members during the meeting that we are just two short years away from the KVG 50th anniversary. Inaugurated in 1970, originally as the Butt Inn group, changing shortly after to Kennet Valley. With this in mind your committee wants to know what you would like to do in 2020, for our 50 year celebrations. Ideas can be passed to any committee member, emailed to me or our GL, or come and talk to us. Planning needs to start soon, or the 50th anniversary time will soon creep up on us. There is a committee meeting the end of this month, and would like to agenda in some ideas, please. Also it's our AGM in March, 'new blood' is always welcome on the committee, so if you would like to be part of the groups organisation and running, Phil would like to hear from you.
A group of around 10 members and friends have booked for The Battle Of the Proms, held at Highclere Castle (home of Downton Abbey) on the 4th August, and tickets are available at discounted rates, JUST FOR THIS MONTH.
