New Owner (Suffolk based) - any meets happening?



  Clio 182
Hi All - Just joined here as I'm off to collect my 'new' 182 next week, and was wondering if anything was happening regarding a meet-up in the East Suffolk area?
I run a pub in Woodbridge, but it's only got a small car park, so probably not the ideal place for a meet... Any ideas to 'do something' before the summer finishes?

Maybe an Aldeburgh 'fish & chip' run from Ipswich using some great back roads I know? What's the consensus?

Not local but have a look at CSF:

I've been twice before (2015 and 2016) and it's a good weekend. People are friendly and it's quite easy to get chatting to people. Take a tent, a camping chair and some liquid refreshment!

There was a thread last year:

Looks like there is a bit of interest. I'd suggesting choosing a date then seeing what interest you get. Alternatively you could look at Pistonheads, I think they have quite a few things going on in the region.

Sadly can't do ClioSport Festival - I run a pub and it's too busy over August Bank Holiday weekend to leave it.
I know the team at PistonHeads East Anglia - I'll have a chat to them, but the numbers tend to be a bit 'unwieldy' on a PHEA event.

How about a Sunday morning meet up - 10am at Sizewell 'Tea' near Leiston on the coast, they do great (reasonably priced) food, and there's lots of car parking next to the cafe (that sadly is chargeable even on a Sunday) - I suggest Sunday 17th September...

We can meet up, have a chat over a brew & fry-up, and then return home at a 'reasonable' hour, rather than lose a whole day...

There are some great roads in that area as well so there's a chance to enjoy your car on the way there and the way home...

Who's in?

Hey, i used to live in Woodbridge for a few years, now live down the road in Grange farm. Not been to any meets for years mind you and I don't really enjoy driving the track car on the road in all honesty but I am from very near you never the less :p

What pub out of interest? I've probably been in it!

I run The Angel in Woodbridge (just off the Market Hill)

Why not come along on Sunday for a fry-up and a chat anyway in whatever you fancy driving? The food at Sizewell T is very nearly worth the journey ;-)
