Wednesday 18th July saw a good attendance at our monthly Wye Dean get-together. We’d relocated to the Old Court Hotel, Whitchurch this month because of the potential for disruption on the A49 at Harewood End. John Williams took some photos of the line –up of TRs, with the red TR3A owned by Kennett Valley members Tony & Tina (who were very welcome – it’s always good to meet Register members from other groups). Then the green Stag is Alan's, the green Grinall is Tony’s, the white TR6 is Julian's, the red TR6 is John’s & the white TR 4 is Nick’s – who was fresh from a fantastic weekend in Le Mans, complete with bumper plaque, and T shirt!!
