    Anyone interested? The thought is to meet for a pub lunch/drink and chat.
    I would suggest The Admiral Nelson (near Braunston) as it was where Malcolm liked to go but we would almost certainly need to book and it may be difficult at such short notice (and its only a small pub).

    Accordingly the Blue Lias near Southam may be a better option.

    Anyone interested in a midday meet on the 16th to have a chat and raise a glass to Malc?

    I'm definitely coming!

    PS If the list of those attending can be put together quickly, perhaps The Admiral Nelson would still be possible?

    We can do the Nelson after his ashes have been laid to rest (likely Spring time)..

    What? Visiting pub as a kid? Back when pubs were just pubs?

    And I thought, I started early ...

    Yeah. Lovely place in the summertime. I used to skim stones along the canal with a dandelion and burdock and a packet of crisps. Them were the days...

    Ok so the thought is meet at the Blue Lias sometime around 12 midday, have a bite to eat, raise a glass and have a chat.
    The snow and ice should be largely gone by then and the temperatures are forecast to be a tropical 3 degrees!

    I'll check with the Blue Lias closer to time and if we need an alternative location will advise here.

    So far those who have expressed interest are:
    Craig
    David (GLK)
    Tjamesbo


    Anyone else is very welcome and if you want to just turn up feel free.

    The menu is here:

    Nothing fancy, just good British pub nosh.

    I'm going to try to make this for an hour or two as well, though it's weather dependant at the moment unfortunately.

    I've planned the day so far to be at MSL around 10.00, meet up with you people around 12 - 12.30, then head home via a night in Wrexham. Just because really. :)

    I was going to give the 190 a run out as it goes on SORN at the end of the month, but I think it's a little bit too far for it so will probably be in the E Class.

    Be nice to catch up, though without a beer as it's a 300 mile round trip. :(

    Change of venue sorry guys... Blue Lias can't do it this Saturday.

    New venue is "The Maltsters" , 1 the Green , Badby NN11 3AF.
    From the A361 near Daventry heading to Banbury, at the bottom of the hill in Badby follow the signs for Badby Village and it's 200 - 300 yards on the right.
    No website I'm afraid but I have it on good authority from Rose the food is excellent.
