June meeting sees us visit Crosville Motor Services at Weston Super Mare.  We have been lucky enough to have been able to obtain the services of Warwick Hulme and his Albion Nimbus to take us down.   Spaces will be limited, so if you are interested please either phone or text 07702846022, (please leave message if it goes to answerphone) or email -
And leave your name & telephone number & names of any additional person travelling with you.
