    Just at an ideas phase atm and also depends on uptake but would be good to get to know who in this area are on the forum and organise a meeting to get to know eachother i know im possibly one of the younger ones so maybe a pub or something if not just a random car park somewhere lol. like i said open to suggestions and that. perhaps set a date for the middle of august.

    If you go for July or August you might even get gate crashers from further afield!!

    For one, I'll be in Devon and Cornwall for a chunk of July and much of August!!

    how does this sound meet at Tesco Lee Mill (by the petrol station) at 1400 on 14th August. that gives the travellers plenty of time to get there.

    I shall be visiting parents in Stonehouse sometime in July or August (most probably in the BMW though) so if I can make it will try.

    I must have driven past the Holland Inn hundreds of times - very large carpark.

    I know it's cheeky so early on but a Sunday would be better for me and Ian. :)

    Pub with big carpark sounds like a plan. Not sure if the Holland Inn is still open?
    The Windy Ridge down the road might be a better option? They were both owned by the same person but he went bankrupt. The Windy Ridge has been sold but the Holland Inn hasn't.

    Or this place also in the same area...

    Windy Ridge is no longer! It is falling to pieces!

    Holland Inn definitely open and running, drive past it at least once a week. :)

    Not when I'm down, but it was a long shot anyway given my current plans. Have a good one!
