Stanford Hall in Leicestershire was the venue for our 2008 rally on Sunday 6 July. This impressive Hall has been the home of the Cave family, ancestors of the present owner Nicholas Fothergill, since 1430. Several members and wives/partners enjoyed an excellent dinner at the Greyhound Coaching Inn & Hotel in nearby Lutterworth on the previous evening.

                For the second year running the weekend weather forecast was poor. Despite this, the turn-out was excellent and the sun did manage a short visit with members able to enjoy a pleasant day.

Our thanks to all who supported the 2008 dinner and rally ... and an extra thank you to all who helped on the day ... the marshals parking up the vehicles as they arrived in torrential rain, the prize draw ticket sellers and the willing hands who assisted in dismantling everything afterwards ... it really is greatly appreciated.
