January 2020 News Update.
A good January meeting was held well attended in spite of the weather. A big thank you for the support given by a number of members and friends well supported by WSJEC to the ESJEC Goodwood Presentation. (Nothing worse than having more presenters than listeners.) The food, presentation and company were excellent.
Our Breakfast at the Orchards Restaurant went down well on Saturday and we are considering going back your thought would be welcome.
We are still looking forward to our Post Christmas Lunch at the Thatch Saturday 25th January.

Hello fellow members.
Welcome to the 2020 Season. finished off well with our Xmas lunch and we still have our Post Christmas Lunch at the Thatched Inn to look forward to Saturday 25th January 7.00. for 7.30 pm .
We have our first Club night of 2020 at the Weald Inn this coming Tuesday 14th 7.30 pm. a noggin and natter evening. Looking forward to see you there.
Our Monthly club breakfast for January is at a changed venue due to Heaven Farm having a holiday. This month it will be held at the Orchard Family Restaurant, Cowfold Road, West Grinstead, RH13 8LY. 9.15 / 9.30 am. Sunday 19th Jan. Very comparable prices and good ambience. I will be requesting a show of hands on Tuesday just to give the staff an idea of numbers. Judith and I personally toured the local area and in our opinion this was right for our club.
We are looking for suggestions for club night entertainment for 2020 and any venues we could perhaps visit after our breakfast meetings on a nice summer Sunday.
Happy Motoring 2020
