Chrystiannes Post, is a follows;

Hi all.

The drive will start at my house at 10:15am for a prompt 10:45 departure. Briar Cottage, Winchester Road, Shedfield. SO32 2JA. From the south, as you come past Wickham Square, go thru the traffic lights at the top of the hill, past BTA caravan sales, past McCarthy’s farm shop, past the A334 turning, you will come to some crossroads.

My house is the second driveway (tarmacked) past the bus stop. From the north, Waltham Chase, past the Forge pub on the S bend, my house is just past the 40 mile sign and opposite the crossroads sign. The driveway has Briar Cottage in gold lettering at the entrance. Please come up the driveway and park on the left hand side on the lawn. The drive will end at the Wheatsheaf Pub in Shedfield and the menus have been put up for you to pre-order. Please let me know as soon as possible by Friday 31st Jan what your choices are. If there are only a few orders we won’t have to pre-book.

The Drive;

At the end (2.1m) turn right into Lovedean Lane. At the end (1m) turn right onto A3. After the traffic lights turn left into Park Lane (0.5m). After roundabout at Tempest Lane, head to Stakes at then onto the roundabout to Stakes (1.3) to Templehurst Road and Stakes Hill Road (0.5m). At the roundabout near where John and Patricia live turn right onto Stakes Road. At the roundabout turn left onto the A3. (0.6m). Carry on thru and turn left at the sign for Wickham on the B2177.

Turn left onto the A32 to the roundabout (0.2m) at take the 2nd exit to the A334. Past Wickham square, turn left onto the A334 after McCarthy’s farm shop, (1.5m) and the Wheatsheaf car park is on the left hand side opposite the pub.

The mileage isn’t accurate as I was on my own and if you saw the scribble I wrote you wouldn’t understand it either ! I hope you are able to join me on this drive, although simple – let’s hope for a bit of sunshine so we can put the tops down.
