Jurassic Coast Mouth to Mouth Run – Weymouth to Exmouth – 18th September 2016

Jurassic Coast Mouth to Mouth Run – Weymouth to Exmouth – 18th September 2016

Another early start for this again due to changes in the calendar with Castle Combe Action Day being held the day before the proposed Saturday evening stop over in Weymouth couldn't happen.

Nick and Len attended the event organised by Jurassic Coast Mini Club in aid of the RNLI.

The start of the event was once again at The Riviera Hotel where breakfast was available at a very reasonable price of £5.00.

Numbers for the run were slightly down on previous years.

The run took us along Weymouth sea front and around the old harbour before heading out across Chesil Bank to Portland, after a short break we headed out on the coast run through Lyme Regis and Seaton before making the mid-run stop at Sidmouth Donkey Sanctury.

From Sidmouth the run continued on to Exmouth sea front where the minis were parked up on the life boat ramp where the charity raffle and BBQ took place.

Castle Combe Mini Action Day – 17th September 2016

Castle Combe Mini Action Day – 17th September 2016

This year saw a great club turnout for another fine day at Combe. The day started early with arrival at 8:30, but by 10 the gazebo and the display boards were up and the kettle was boiling.  Then it was BBQ out and a tart on breakfasts mostly consisting of bacon butties.

Unlike previous years the show seemed smaller than normal with less traders and auto jumble about, but there were still some bargains to be had!  There was also the opportunity to sell on some of those old bits that have been hanging around the garage for a few years. 

With the sun out and a cool breeze it was a perfect day to walk around the club stands and catch up with friends.  Or you could grab a bite to eat and chill out by the track and enjoy the action day fun.

Dawn treated herself by purchasing an addition to her family and a friend for ‘Thomas’, a Mayfair which she has named ‘Harry’.
