September 2014

Secretary's Scribble
Heavy storm at Flixton meant we had to leave the site via 9" of flood water, other than that a good day. Tornado at Mildenhall Rally! means not very well supported and event curtailed early! Our visit to the Suffolk Aviation Heritage Museum was very interesting and well attended.
The main event of the month was the Helmingham Festival of Classic & Sports Cars at Helmingham Hall. We had excellent weather and the exhibitors and the public rolled in. Two sessions of Concourse Runs were held down the main drive and the crowd thrilled to see the cars in action. In excess of 800 cars were on display on site together with craft and trade stalls, bands and music groups, birds of prey demonstrations and other entertainments. Plus all the usual refreshments etc. A really good day and we are hopeful that we have raised in excess of £4,000 for the East Anglia's Children's Hospice's. We shall see.
