Myself & Carole should be able to make it in My winter vehicle, as long a the M4 isn't closed due to snow at Membury Services..!!

Hi Tony,
Please put me down as a ‘maybe’, I won’t be able to confirm until a few days before ( due to work!).
Thanks Mike.

Hoping to wax the car in the morning first!


Guess I could stop at the boot to leave earlier, and come over the bridge!

Hi Tony!

Now you've moved about 40 mile closer to the real SOUTH WEST, how can I not join you?! .... if there's still room for another Dave.

I plan to be at the Aust Services, but it is a bit dependent on how Carol is at the weekend. I will be on my own for breakfast.

Already looking forward to it - the last time I made one of your meets was the first at Kemble - February 2017?

You’ll be very welcome Dave, looks like it’s our second anniversary then!
Weather forecast is changing daily, maybe even a little sunshine amongst the showers now.
My initial guess of twenty is looking good.

I took a run over to Beachley today. The Ferry Inn is closed for building works and the car park is blocked off.
If you drive past you can get a picture under the bridge from the small lifeboat carpark, like this but better exposed I hope....
For directions to Beachley.
From the Garden Centre cross straight over the roundabout following the A48 down the hill past Chepstow, over the lights over the river, up the hill and turn right signposted Beachley and “Barracks”. Left at the roundabout and then just keep going till you run out of road or drive into the river. It’s about an eight mile round trip. NB Beware lots of traffic calming in 20mph limit in Sedbury, humps, cushions etc.
