August started with a bang when we had around 30 members attend the club night on the 7th, Terry brought some “B” spare parts as he was clearing his garage, which were quickly snapped up. Michael & Alison gave a briefing to those who would be marshals at Claydon and Ian took orders for club polo’s and sweaters.
The 18th was “Cars To The Claydons” which saw entrants start from Toddington for a scenic run to Claydon House, with all monies going to the Little Lives charity. The morning at Claydon was very wet until about 10am then it became a very pleasant and warm day. The setting at Claydon House was very nice as the cars parked in the gardens along with the cars from the Lotus club and vintage cars and tractors. Lady Alexandra Verney and her PA Tory made us welcome and the day was a great success for all.
On the 22nd we had our Mid week run out to the Plough at Simpson, a newly refurbished pub. We had 18 members and partners attended, with 15 dining, the food was very good and there was a good selection of choices on the menu. I think we may visit the Plough again in the future.
