The *Nosh*, Lewknor, Sunday 8th January 2017

A
nother New Year and as usual, weather permitting, we are aiming to gather at 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel' for our traditional, post-Christmas Nosh, lunchtime, on Sunday, 8th January 2017!

'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel' is at Lewknor (on the borders of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire) and finding your way there could not be easier! Look for Junction 6 of the M40, at the foot of the Chilterns and head towards Watlington on the B4009 (that's heading left after leaving the motorway, coming from London, or right, coming from Birmingham). The first turning on the right after leaving the motorway, takes you into the village of Lewknor and to the door of the 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel'. Try and arrange to arrive at around opening time (12 noon) to have the best choice from the pub's excellent menu and a comfortable seat (go to http://www.theleathernbottle.co.uk/ for more information and a 'sample menu'!).

I've had a quick look in the crystal ball (the Romans saw no future in them) and the weekend of the 8th January is likely to be bright, cold and mostly dry in the South East but who really knows! Whatever the weather, it should be a perfect day out!!

If you need more details, contact Tony Yates (Honorary Secretary) at KaRo.Club@Outlook.com, or if you get lost on the day, 'phone Tony on 07973 448 023 or the pub on 01844 351482.


AGM - Saturday 22 October 2016

H
opefully all Members will have seen the e-mail concerning our AGM, brought forward to its more usual spot in the calendar, which means it will be held on Saturday 22nd October 2016 at Big Al's new 'local' the Prince of Wales at 16 High Street, Shrivenham SN6 8AF (just off the A420 between Faringdon and Swindon - see http://www.powshrivenham.com/).

We will meet at lunchtime (from 12:00 noon if you can make it) with the intention of having a relatively informal meeting as previously, to take any Reports and to elect a Committee to see us through the next twelve months.

If you would like to join the Committee and help in any capacity, please let our Secretary, Tony, know as soon as possible. All are welcome and the more the better!

As last year, we will not be asking for subscription renewals for 2016/17 until after the AGM and only then, if we are able to start publishing TAKE-OFF again. I understand from our Editor, Mark, that he may still have sufficient material for a magazine although would be delighted to receive any new contributions. Do look out for a subscription renewal notice should you receive your copy of TAKE-OFF!

If you wish to attend the AGM, it will be helpful if you could let Tony know so we can look out for you on the day. If you are unable to attend, please let Tony know as well. We should all have somewhere to sit at the Prince of Wales, possibly in their function room if it is available and there are sufficient of us. If you need any information on our meeting venue, or advice on local accommodation, please contact Big Al (alanbubblecars@hotmail.com).

The *Nosh*, Lewknor, Sunday 10th January 2016

A
nother New Year and weather permitting, what better way to get things off to a proper start than our traditional post-Christmas 'NOSH'! As usual, we are aiming to gather at 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel' Lewknor (on the borders of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire) lunchtime, Sunday 10th January 2016.

For newcomers, finding your way there could not be easier! Look for Junction 6 of the M40, at the foot of the Chilterns and head towards Watlington on the B4009 (that's heading left after leaving the motorway, coming from London, or right, coming from Birmingham). The first turning on the right after leaving the motorway, takes you into the village of Lewknor and to the door of the 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel'. Try and arrange to arrive at around opening time (12 noon) to have the best choice from the pub's excellent menu and a comfortable seat (http://www.theleathernbottle.co.uk)!

Looking ahead to the 10th, the generally mild and unsettled weather that we have been experiencing in the southern half of the UK is expected to continue through into the first two weeks of the New Year. There is even a possibility that it may be drier with, perhaps a glimpse of sunshine on the day, but who knows! Whatever the weather, it should be a perfect day out!!

If you need more details, contact Tony Yates (Honorary Secretary) at mec.mail@virgin.net, or if you get lost on the day, 'phone Tony on 07973 448 023 or the pub on 01844 351482.
