Re: Dorset & Somerset. Shaftesbury to Portland Bill on Sunday 11th August 2019

Post by CLOVERLEAF159 » Wed Jul 24, 2019 7:21 pm

The Events team are pleased to confirm the run on Sunday 11th August will be from Shaftesbury to Portland Bill where we go for our meal and is a Brand New Destination for us :) :)

Start/meet time 10am ... Tesco Superstore, Christy's Lane, Shaftesbury, Dorset SP7 8PF

from where we hope to depart at 10.15 and go for a short drive to:

Stop off point at 11.00 AM at the Worlds End Inn at Almer, Blandford Forum DT11 9EW - for refreshments

Website: https://www.worldsendalmer.co.uk/?utm_s ... ontent=gmb

from where we will leave for the second part of the drive to:

The Pulpit Inn in Portland, just a few hundred yards from Portland Bill for 1.15pm where we have tables booked for us.

The Pulpit Inn located at : Portland Bill, Portland, Dorset, DT5 2JT

Website: https://www.thepulpitinnportland.co.uk/index

There will be a Sunday Carvery as well as other options to eat

Portland Bill is just a few hundred yards away and has a shop serving 99 flake ice creams and the like just in case you would rather do that and enjoy an ice cream with the stunning views than order an dessert at the Restaurant.

Parking is Free at the pub but just in case all spaces are taken (I doubt it , but you never know) , Please bring change with you for the Portland Bill car park. Charges are £2 for 2 hours... £ 3.50 for 3 hours..

As usual Please post on this thread if you wish to attend and a member of The Events team will add you to the list on Page 1.

The team look forward to seeing you and as usual some nice driving roads have been route tested and chosen for your pleasure too =D> :thumleft:

Lizzie and I will probably meet you guys at The Worlds End, that’s literally a 5 minute drive for me and a 1 minute walk from Lizzie’s house. No point driving all the way the Shaftesbury to come home again!

I won't be able to make this one unfortunately, but I thought I'd pass on that Scotty passed his Driving test with 1 minor, obviously having not taken any cues from my driving. :thumright:

He's currently looking for an automatic RX8...

Anybody else want to join us on our inaugural visit to Portland..... family and kids always welcome too..... :thumright:

Don't worry if your RX-8 is not running , your no longer own one or whatever... Your welcome to come in your other car.... and you wont be on your own... Neither Nigel or me own an RX-8 anymore and other members have turned up in other cars. :thumleft:

Just post on this thread and a member of The Events Team will add you to the list on Page 1.
