911uk seems to have a lot of boozy nights out type of events. But being a non drinker myself it’s not really my thing.

I wonder if there would be any interest in non alcohol fuelled meets. Say a meet up for tea and cake or paint ball. I know a lot of those old manor houses/castles have café’s such as Pembroke lodge in Richmond Park.

any thoughts?

Me too... also non-drinker and a cream tea connisseur!

There are some brilliant tea shops around, in some wonderful locations that would make a great meeting point and an excuse to give the Porsche a nice run in the country...

OK, so maybe winter weather isn't always the best, but later in the year - a great day out!

Thinking about that, how about a leisurely 'Treasure Hunt' ending at a tea shop somewhere?

I'd be up for a non-boozy event! And being a foody, I'm always game on for trying any new restaurants etc.

Or maybe one day we'll have a drive out to Bath for tea and scones in the Pump room?!

Sounds like a good Spring Tea and Scones London to Bath Run on the diary then! :D

Great idea - only in the country until April and then away for 6 months. Goodwood Breakfast Club is always a good event (went to most of them last year) - Will keep an eye on the posts.

live in Hants.

Have you tried parking in Bath recently? :(

Erm, no, but I'm sure there is a secure covered car park somewhere?

Sounds like a great idea.

Also I like the idea of heading into the west country. Near to Bath is Cheddar Gorge which provides some great opportunities for testing ones exhaust out. Nice day in early spring (before the tourists come out) and you can loop back through the cotswolds.

That area would be great for me - what about Burford in the Cotswolds or Broadway or Bourton on the water? All have lots of tea shops for all the old people who visit and will offer some good driving too.

I don't really know the area... maybe Sean and a few others more familiar with the area could put an itinerary together for all of us? :)

Arrive early in Bourton and park alongside the 'Water', those in need of 'alternative' entertainment can visit Birdland, those titty dances in the cages are a once in a lifetime experience :twisted:

What, you want to go to more than one tea shop? :?

Sounds good to me, one day at the weekend in early spring sounds good when the roads are a little drier... :D

Just remembered there is a superb little hotel in Lower Slaughter (Cotswolds) that does a fantastic cream tea on the patio - loads of off road parking, beautiful scenery, nice walks nearby and we could have a great photo opportunity in front of a lovely old stone building...

Also reasonably central for most people...

Did you just offer to organise something Wattie? :wink:

Great for me - only 30minutes to the Slaughters and some good roads around there.
