2014 Visit to Welford Park
Over 20 people from the Works Centre Wanderers Lunchtime Natter turned out on Wednesday 19th February and had a very enjoyable day at Welford Park, near Newbury, strolling round the snowdrops. The weather was dry and bright but with a chill in the air as befits February. It was good to see one brave pair, James and Diana Page, who arrived in their MG PA which battled through the flood waters alongside the modern MGs. We have heard from them since they got home, to say their rear footwells now have water sloshing round in them but they should be fine once it all dries out. The true spirit of MGs I believe.
Sadly, one pair, Kevin and Anna Wright were unable to join us in the pub afterwards for lunch as they had noticed on the way up from Portsmouth that one of the tyres on their modern MG TF was losing air. After calling at several garages to no avail, they decided to drive slowly back to the south coast, where their local garage soon found the offending nail. The car is now back in good working order with no harm done.
If any of you would like to join us for our Wanderers Natters, you would be very welcome. They are always held during the day on the third Wednesday of each month. As the Abingdon Works Centre covers a vast area, from Banbury right down to the south coast, we try to vary where we have the meetings and visits. It’s good fun and as most of us are retired, we are able to have a cheap day out by claiming our concessions at houses we visit and OAP rates for cheap meals in the pubs!
