SS15

Spring Opener

 

When: Sunday 18th April

 

Where: Cotswolds 

Cool, dry sunny weather greeted the two dozen members and friends who decided to "Visit the Cotswolds". Five Hotchkiss were joined by the lovely vintage Lagonda of Richard and Jean Jones, all parked in sunshine at the "Cotswold Outpost" near Burford, while our group enjoyed coffee and cake inside this characterful wayside cafe. 

 

Then a short but beautiful drive via Barrington and Great Rissington - soon we found ourselves in Bourton-on-the-Water, where we squeezed our cars alongside the Old New Inn, parking as tidily as we could. Next, into the exquisite Model Village, built in the 1930s by local craftsmen to encourage tourists to visit the pub - an exact replica of the village of Bourton at that time. Even the mature trees are maintained at the one ninth scale used for the miniature cottages and shops we all admired.

 

By now, we'd worked up an appetite! So into the pub we went, where a convivial meal was enjoyed in an area set aside for us. Very many thanks to organisers Clive and Toddy for arranging such a good day. And great to see their Cabourg motoring well once more.
