For some reason there seems to be a high Citroen quota in the Midlands/South East area. Perhaps it's time to organise a sub NW section of the main Northern Section of the CCC. Any volunteers. :?:

It's not usually the distance that keeps me from meets in other parts of the country, just that I'm normally working, but if something was happening closer by it would be interesting.

I'd attend if it wasn't too 'NE'. Manchesterish would be OK although I'm not too 'au fait' with 'the North'.

Manchester? That's near Scotland innit :?:

Oh thee know 'ow t' mek best o' things n' show thee sens a good time oop North! :D

Why doesn't someone name a possible venue ( that isn't the Outer Hebrides or 'a supermarket car park in Bolton' :D ) and a date and take it from there? Sounds like there's a fair bit of interest?

Now you're on to something!

What do we require from a venue for this kind of thing?

How's about this for a venue? I'd be tempted to make the trek from deepest Wales.
