event over the May Day weekend attracted 28 people in their Standard
on Friday with a visit to the Animal Health Trust at Newmarket
followed by a start of event dinner in Bury St Edmunds where most
participants stayed overnight.
Saturday saw the group taking a country route to Framlingham Castle
and the to the Long Shop Museum in Leiston. This was followed by a
fish and chip meal on the beach at Dunwich. Then onto Southwold to
our overnight accommodation which was enveloped in swirling sea
Sunday involved a visit to a railway station with revolving platforms
at Halesworth and a real ale brewery visit before heading to Flixton
Aircraft Museum. In glorious sunshine over most of the weekend we
headed back to Southwold for the event dinner on the newly restored
struggled through the enormous banana splits and knickerbocker
glories we were entertained by a singing duo. We then had our own
singing interlude to a song written for the occasion, to much
amusement from the other diners on the pier.
Monday we paid a visit to Aldeburgh and Woodbridge before arriving
at the Ipswich Transport Museum and a superb guided tour. After
lunch many of us enjoyed the site of Jimmys Farm (BBC TV
Documentary) before departing for home.
you like relaxed country lane driving and prefer being on the move
rather than the "rally in a field" then come and join us
next year in Constable Country on the Suffolk Essex border.
