This is a gathering open to all Mazda Rotary enthusiasts, regardless of Club affiliations. It's a great an opportunity for like minded people to get together for a social evening. By all means bring your Rotary carriage, as we'd all love to see it, but bringing a Rotary is not a requirement

"I am looking at Ettington Chase Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, for Saturday 14th December
https://www.ettingtonchase.co.uk/wp-con ... e_2019.pdf
The menu is not a great variety but is reasonably priced. The reason I am looking at this hotel is because it is the same village as https://caffeineandmachine.com/ and thought some people might wish to go there on the Sunday before heading back home.
