Sunday Drive Out – 5 July 2020
A small group of members met up at Latham’s car park at Potter Heigham for a very enjoyable drive out on Sunday 5th July. After coffees we said good bye to Graham and Joyce, who had come out to see everyone off, and then we set off following David and Gloria along some very nice country roads to our first planned stop at the tearooms at Kerri’s Pine at Reepham. Despite the restrictions on restaurants and pubs having been lifted shortly before our visit, the tearooms were still closed, so we jumped back in the cars and drove the short distance to the heritage railway at Whitwell Station. Here we were greeted by the friendly staff and directed to The Sidings cafe and bar, where we ordered some light refreshments which we enjoyed in the gardens. Whitwell is Norfolk’s newest heritage railway and was busy with visitors, but everything was well organised and social distancing was observed.
As this was a BMGOC run thought soon turned to where we were going to eat later, so David rang the Fish Bar at Walcott to see what time they closed – 3pm! That meant a more direct drive back towards the coast so we would
make it in time, which we did. Walcott was also very popular, and some of us found it hard to find a parking space, but eventually we were all parked up and eating fish and chips sat on top of the sea wall. The perfect way to end a great day.
Many thanks go to David for organising the day.
Club Night – 5th August 2020
The August club night will be a return visit to the Walcott Fish Bar for 7pm. Please let David have you orders of cod, plaice or haddock before Tuesday PM. No convoy – we will meet up at Walcott.
Centre 81 Charity Donation
Despite not being able to raise any money for our supported charities this year with the cancellation of the Heritage Run, the club has still been able to make a donation to the much deserving Centre81, with the money coming from our own club funds rather than the charity account. Many thanks go to Jenny and David for organising this. A letter of thanks from Diana Staines, Centre 81 CEO, can be viewed on main newsletter.
