Club AGM at the Fairmile, Cobham

Saturday 23rd July 2016

At previous AGMs a number of members suggested the idea of a club weekend. This year therefore we decided to hold the AGM on the same weekend as the Brooklands Retrojumble and Classic Car Show, an event which has been well attended by Club Members in previous years.

The 2016 Gathering and AGM took place on Saturday 23rd July at The Fairmile in Cobham Surrey. The Fairmile comprises a Premier Inn and a Chef and Brewer and is very close to J10 of the M25. The Fairmile has a large lawn in front of the main building where we were able to display our cars to great effect.

The Brooklands Retrojumble and Classic Car Show took place the following morning and is a short 10-15 minute drive away. We had a large room set aside for the AGM at the Fairmile which was also reserved for our group evening meal. The food at the Fairmile was excellent as was the company in the evening. The Premier Inn was comfortable for an overnight stay and quite reasonable and we enjoyed a very good breakfast on the Sunday morning before setting off to Brooklands in convoy.

Although we had a really enjoyable time, it was just a pity that so few members were able to attend the AGM and dinner.

One possible explanation was that this was the first weekend of the school holidays and also clashed with the Silverstone Classic.

I think Rob is planning to bring the AGM forward in 2017 but I would certainly recommend the Fairmile as a great venue - especially if there is something on at Brooklands the next day.
