Not Much SL Action . . . . A Challenge

Any SL owners up for a meet in East Anglia somewhere?
If enough people are interested we can sort out location, date and time

Cambridgeshire or Suffolk would be central.
I'm happy to organise it, if we can find a reasonably sized group.

Add your details below if you are interested;


Edit; 25th Oct 2019

As has been (rightly) pointed out, nowhere in East Anglia (EA) is central, except to Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.

I am happy to open this out to UK wide, but then, my taking on the organising becomes more difficult.
I have to ask opinions of locals in 2 or 3 central UK areas for appropriate meeting places / routes, if we want to take a drive / places to eat.
Then, things get messy.

I would be happy to do the organising, if, when we have an agreed meeting area, someone local, can do the . . . .well . . . .local stuff.

So, if you are interested, UK wide, stick your details below and let's see if we can get a good SL meet organised

Great idea Janner!
But Im not sure where Cambridgeshire or Suffolk are central to......East Anglia I guess?
Given the low numbers of SL owners I think youll get a better response if you chose a location more central to the U.K.
Good luck anyway.

Hi Janner,
Great idea but on an SLK forum you're always going to have a limited audience and even more so if you concentrate on East Anglia.
Living near Norwich I'm used to having to travel some distance to attend meetings which isn't a problem as I'm always up for an excuse to give the '63 a run out!

Thanks gents
If we can get a few more interested bodies, we can give it a go
Personally, I like the idea of Warwickshire . . . Close to the middle of England (a long run from the North mind)

If you are inviting people to join you who own an SLK I would come along to Hilltop Farm depending on date chosen.
