Hi, its a good time to fix our calendar for next year so I’m asking for suggestions on venues - I’ve picked the usual third Sunday of the month unless it clashes with say a Bank Holiday, fathers Days, Mothers Days or some other important event. A few members prefer a summer Thursday night meeting between May and September so I’ve pencilled in the first Thursday of the month, (but this can be changed to another date) I’m flexible on dates/times and just here to co-ordinate what everyone would like. I think we should include a June date for the Essex Camping weekend at the Star at Steeple again too though.
This year we’ve enjoyed quite a variety and mix of venues, including the Power Museum, airfield, various cafes and even the odd pub and one was even out of county xx So, with that all in mind, has anyone got any suggestions of places they’d like to suggest for a meeting etc please? Once I have a good list I’ll mix them up geographically as best I can and then we can publish them.
I will update this message and the provisional list as everyone’s suggestions and comments are received.
