Hi again Folks – really into the height of the Show season now and the weather seems to be holding out – most of the time. We could do with a few more days when we can get the ‘hoods’ off though!.

I have noticed lots of ‘Classics’ on the roads at weekends, so a lot of you are taking advantage of the weather and going off to one of the many events which are taking place around the country. How about letting us have some of your photos to display on the Gallery and on your Club website.
