CCC East Midlands Group Meeting (ALL WELCOME)

Post by Tim Leech » Wed Oct 12, 2011 9:13 am

The next meet within the East Midlands Group is to visit Barry Annells' establishment in Bourne (Bourne Citroën - PE10 9JY for GPS users) on the 23rd October.

The plan is to meet at the Waterside Garden Centre (PE6 9NY), on Kings Street, just off the A15 at Baston, at 11.00 am, have a look around, then have lunch in the restaurant there. Afterwards we will convoy to Barry's Garage for a good look around and rummage!


Normally a few BX's on site PLUS he always has a good selection of parts and technical knowhow.

I am indeed. Pop some sunglasses in your glove box. As well as the foglights my rear door shut is now as shiny as shiny Jock Mcshiny, winner of the all Scotland 'Mr. Shiny' contest! :D

Any takers for this one? I will probably go straight to Barrys and miss out the Garden Centre meeting so should be there about 2pm.

I quite fancied the idea of looking at some Begonia's and Fuschias before the Citroen gawping session! :lol:

I was planning to get to the 'Waterside Garden Centre' for about 10.30 ( I'm not that fussed about the flowers but they tend to do good cakes at garden centres I've found :P )
