Is it time for a Cheshire-ish yuletide-ish gathering?

Sounds OK to me David, week beginning Dec 6 not good for me, 13th onwards looks OK except for 1 or 2 parties arranged later on ! Would it be better in the hols, ie between Xmas/New Year maybe ?

Seems to be a problem with Dan though...but how about really early in the week on the occasion of Keke Rosberg's 56th birthday?

Yes, Haddenham is very near my old stamping ground...Dan: you have to take photos of the old Haddenham race track, and the location of Alexander Engineering and Ted Martin's workshop!

We hope to see you then!

From the M6 J20, follow the A50 towards Warrington.
The road to Grappenhall village is signed, although the sign may not be visible in the dark. It’s about 150 yards after the start of the 30 limit (for those of you who notice these things). If you reach a large, lights controlled, junction you’ve gone about 400 yards too far.
Follow the road which gets narrower as you go and becomes cobbled. The Parr Arms is on your right just after a bridge over the canal and the church. (Directions from Roger for last meeting...they seemd to work)

Hows about 7.30? Perhaps we should book a table?

Must return Climax engine and Moss/Pomeroy books.

Promise to pay for my food this time :cool:

Will there be an unveiling of a certain 1/43 model, Barry?
