2nd July in Essex

Postby Alpineandy » Thu May 11, 2017 9:36 pm

There seem to be an informal Renault gathering at Abberton Reservoir at 2pm on Sunday the 2nd July.
Any RAOC members fancy it then see; https://www.facebook.com/events/530434680679582/ (if you can access it).

Basically Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre, Church Road, Layer-De-La-Haye, Colchester, Essex, CO2 0EU.

Anyone interested?

It's basically exactly what I've said with a 'I will attend / I may attend / I will not attend' button.
They'd like an idea of how many will be there, so mention it below and I'll pass it on in a few weeks time.


I'll probably go (in the trike) but I can't be sure yet as I may have to be elsewhere...
It's an unofficial gathering, so no events planned but a nice place for a chat.
Mainly ROC and RCCC.

I'd definitely be up for it, Abberton is a lovely spot, and I haven't been in the Colchester area for several years, I used to visit my folks at Lexden 2-3 times a month.. Also I know of 3 other Avantime owners in Essex, so shall mention it on our forum and hopefully they will be able to come along?

Great. I'll do a head count closer to the time.
It's an unofficial thing, so not club specific and no direct club involvement or organised activities (or else Insurance would be necessary), but a very nice spot, especially when the wind isn't whipping across from the North Sea :)

I'm hoping to be there ? .... Currently my Avi is doubling as a removal Van this w/end, so all depends on shifting enough stuff in enough time !! :crazy

That was a pleasant afternoon.
A fair mix of Renaults (a dozen IIRC) and good weather (too hot for a full day).
Alpine-wise only Paul with his GTA (Red does look excellent when it's done well) and Geoff with his White A110.
Some photos to follow (after I suss out how to post them).
