MEET REPORT: Norfolk Meet 2016 (Piss up in a Brewery)

At least once a year S2KUK heads for East Anglia for the Norfolk meet, hosted by Steve and Sharon (Minvo and McMinny).  This year was something different and in addition to the drive through the wonderful East Anglian countryside, we spent a night at Southwold and were able to take in a tour of the Adnams Brewery.

The weekend started on Friday evening with a buffet at Steve’s house and a few drinks.  After the battle to get down the A14/A11 this was welcome refreshment.  The evening weather proved warm enough to be outside and the traditional burning of everything combustible on the fire-pit kept us going until late into the evening.

A sensible 10am meeting at Thickthorn services near Norwich, and we had a seven car convoy fuelled with V-Power and ready to go.  From here we headed south west towards Wymondham in some fairly steady rain but roofs were still down in defiance of the weather.   The pace was brisk as we turned south and across the border into Suffolk towards our first refreshment stop 35 miles away at the Farmers Kitchen near Harleston on the A143.  Here we topped our own tanks up with bacon roles and coffee.

We had lost one car at one of the tricky earlier junctions but were soon reunited as we set off again for the next 25 mile run down to Framlingham.   This turned out to be slightly longer due to a couple of missed turns but trying to all reverse back to the correct junction proved to be excellent entertainment, not just for us but for the locals too.

The seven of us parked up right next to Framlington Castle which made for an excellent photo-call back drop and then we went off to explore the town for a few hours. 

The last leg took us to the coast and to the final destination at the Swan Hotel in Southwold.  The town itself was busy with tourists and we got many “look, they are all Honda’s” from the passers-by as we picked our way through the traffic.  Several of us had decided to stay on for the night and were able to do a late tour of the Adnams Brewery.  This fascinating tour culminated in a tasting session at the brewery bar.  After sampling as much of the ales on offer, we were glad we had completed our driving for the day. 

Back at the hotel it was time for a wonderful three course dinner with plenty of Adnams beer, gin and vodka to sample.   This forced us to finish the evening with a gentle stroll to the end of Southwold Pier to walk off some of the extra calories.  Falling asleep in our hotel rooms in the humid evening was easy.

Sunday had a relaxed start and an opportunity for some of us to explore the town a bit more and to fill whatever space we had available in our boots with beer before the drive home.

Thanks to all of those who attended. It’s you who make these meets fun but a particular thank you to Steve and Sharon for their superb hospitality and organisation.   Looking forward to next year already!

XM13 - S2KUK Christmas Party 3rd December 2016

It's that time of year again when we need to think about the Christmas Party......so here are the details! 

 

The venue is: Wroxton House Hotel, Wroxton, Nr Banbury

We haven't been here before....  There are a limited number of bedrooms at the hotel but plenty of options of places to stay in Banbury if full and plenty of space to join the party!  Because of this, we will need to do a first come on rooms at the hotel...

Christmas Party Night - £32.50 per person to include:

  • Three course meal with a choice of dishes followed by coffee (a full guest list with their individual menu choices will be required no later than 2 weeks prior to the event).
  • Crackers and festive table decorations.
  • Resident DJ playing in the hotel lounge until 12.30am.
  • ** no wine is included.

Accommodation 

   Double/Twin room -       £79.50 each ROOM per night to include English breakfast.
   Superior room (3) -      £114.50 each ROOM per night to include English breakfast.
   Single occupancy -       £59.75 each ROOM per night to include breakfast (not including superior rooms).

   Two single rooms are part of the 32 reserved, these rooms have 3’ beds which can be used as a small doubles. 
   In the case of them being used as doubles the rate would be £72.70 per room per night.

Hotel have requested: we have noted that you will be collating the names and full payment for the Party Nights which will be paid to us in September.  With regard to the deposits for the bedrooms, I have discussed this with the team and we would prefer a £20.00 per person deposit to be collected in addition to the Party Night as the event is treated completely separately from the bedrooms.  
Guests can then settle the room balances on departure. All monies paid are non-refundable.

So we would need deposit money per person of £32.50 party night + £20.00 accommodation = £52.50 per person deposit by latest 31/08/2016.

We would prefer payment by Bank Transfer (to save card processing/paypal fees):
UK S2000 Owners Club
HSBC
40-38-20
51406027
REFERENCE: XM13 

DO NOT RESERVE YOUR OWN ROOMS - THIS WILL BE DONE FOR YOU UPON US KNOWING WHAT YOU WANT AND RECEIVING DEPOSIT.  

Please email secretary@s2kuk.com to book your place, or post on the thread on S2KI here: http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/1153140-xm13-christmas-party-2016-sat-3rd-december/
