Barnards Day, Saturday 23rd July
Bernard and Sylvia Holmes have very kindly invited Club members to Barnards Farm on Saturday, July 23rd this year. For the many people who have visited on previous occasions, they will know that there is much to do on arrival, from a leisurely walk around the grounds to enjoy the sculpture and garden plants, to a trip on the estate train where, no doubt, there will be new features to see, and then there is the world’s finest collection of veteran and Edwardian De Dion Bouton motor cars to admire. For those who want to expend more energy, the track is available for tricycles and quadricycles to use. Two small electric jeeps are on hand for children to drive under supervision.
Guests are welcome from 10.30am and there is ample parking for trailers. The trains run from noon to 1pm,and then the usual excellent buffet lunch will be served. After lunch, an optional excursion has been prepared to nearby Blackmore for those bringing old vehicles, where the cars can be displayed on the village green, while we enjoy tea and cakes. The journey there is 14.6 miles, and the return is 12 miles or 22.6 miles, depending on how adventurous participants want to be.
For those club participants wishing to attend, please email Michael Edwards (firstname.lastname@example.org), with the number of participants, an indication of any special dietary requirements, and whether an old car is being entered for the afternoon excursion. An early response will be helpful to organise catering.
The cost per head is £29 and payment should ideally be made directly to the Club bank account (sort code: 30-91-91; account: 34965060) stating surname as a reference. If a cheque is the only option, make it payable to De Dion Bouton Club UK and send it to Michael Edwards, 59, Surrenden Road, Brighton, BN1 6PQ.
Bernard and Sylvia are looking forward to welcoming you in July.
