Sunday   4th September RSPCA Gala Day at the Great Ayton Animal Centre (Yorkshire) on the A172. Olivia Hatcher would like to invite any Panther owners to display their cars at this fund raising event. Contact her via email 
French Trip to Honfleur  (10)

Wed. 7th to Monday 12th September

A return to the Hotel Bellevue at Villerville, midway between Honfleur and Trouville is planned. We last stayed here in 2003 (see albums). However, the stay was a bit chaotic as we happened to go when the weekend was a major public holiday and the whole area was teeming with people. We should be able to enjoy Honfleur, Trouville and Deauville more without the extreme crowds.
I have reserved 12 rooms at the Bellevue (4 nights Thursday to Monday) and also Wednesday night at our usual rendezvous hotel at Escalles. However, if people wish to save the cost of the Wednesday night stay and meet us en-route that can be arranged. Also people who live in the south may find it more convenient to cross to Le Havre and make their own way to the Hotel Bellevue.

Half board at the Bellevue will be 95 euros per person per night and the one night stay at the Hotel L'Escalles  costs around 120 euros per couple including breakfast and the evening meal.

Closing date for booking extended to 31st July. Remember also that the sooner you book your crossing, the cheaper it will be.

Contact Roy Biddle via email (roy.biddle at or tel: 01702 218197.


Sunday 25th September (9)

Battlesbridge Grand Motorbilia Day Contact Roy Biddle via email or tel: 01702 218197 Malcolm & Liz have once again invited us back to an after the event BBQ at their house in Rettenden.
