Lunch and tour of Hawkshead Brewery

The date has now been fixed for Saturday the 29th of November. I suggest we meet up at the Forton service station on the M6 at 11:45 am so we can be at the Beer Hall for lunch at about 12:30. This will give us 90 minutes to eat before the tour starts at 2:00pm.
As well as serving normal bar meals and Sunday lunches the beer hall also serve up to 14 different tapas if you only want a light snack.

The cost of the tour is £6.50 and includes either a pint or 2 halves at the end of the tour. The whole tour takes about 45 minutes and includes a short film.
Staveley is about mid way between Kendal and Windermere.

Nicola wants to go shopping but I’m sure the lure of some red wine and Tapas will change all thoughts of shopping!

Fish & Chips supper & run through Illuminations

At the club meeting last night we decided on a fish and Chip supper followed by a run through the lights. The date is Thursday 6th November and we are going to meet up at the Cottage Fish and Chip shop which is at 31 Newhouse Road Blackpool FY4 4JH AT 8:00pm.
That should allow us to be ready to rumble through the lights at about 9:00. If it is busy we can always run from the North to the South.

All we need is some dry weather to get the hoods down!

A possible cheaper alternative to “Go Pro” camera’s?

Stan Ratcliffe copied this to me this week

Hi David,
A few years ago the TVR club negotiated a discount on our products for members and today we launch A Christmas Shopping offer for TVR members,
Demonstrating the capabilities of the Digi-Cam. One of our customers unclipped his from their car, popped it onto a baseball cap, switched from ‘continuous loop driving record’ to normal HD video and used it to film a once-in-a-lifetime experience flying on-board an Avro Lancaster WW2 bomber (one of only two flying Lancasters that survive)

Not bad for a camera that TVR members can buy for just £79 during our Christmas Shopping Offer (ends 30th Nov) and it has a serious purpose of providing evidence in the event of an incident.
For a real bargain combine the camera with a CHIPnTRAC security kit for just £159

Run to Hawkshead Brewery at Stavely

Heath suggested this place for a run out, lunch and a tour of the brewery. There is a tour at 2 pm on Saturdays so it would give time for a spot of lunch in the “Beer Hall”. As well as serving normal bar meals and Sunday lunches they also serve up to 14 different tapas if you only want a light snack.

The cost of the tour is £6.50 and includes either a pint or 2 halves at the end of the tour. The whole tour takes about 45 minutes and includes a short film.
Staveley is about mid way between Kendal and Windermere.

We can leave from the Tickled Trout at 10:00 and call in at Forton Services on the way in case that is easier for some people.
Just now need to sort the Saturday we go. for more details see:-
