Solent: Sunday run 2nd April

02 April 2017 10:10 at Stockbridge SO20 6HA

Sunday 2nd April run 2017 This is a change to the program for 2nd April. This will now be a re-run of the 3RD Jan 2016 as anyone will tell you it was that very wet Sunday that has been talked about many times. I think the run deserved another outing to see what was missed the first time around. So the start will be from, as before in Stockbridge at the top end of the village in the bus lane just before leaving the village on the Salisbury road. If the weather is good coffee will be served before the start. Will meet from 10am to start at 10.30am Post Code for the start is S020 6HA. The end of the drive will be the same as last time at the Bear & Ragged Staff Michelmersh, Romsey SO51 0LB. Please indicate if you are eating, so that I can give the approximate numbers in advance,looking forward to your company.

Folks with either dietary or vegetarian difficulties are asked to look at the on-line menu and let me know their choice form that. 
Sample Lunch Menu - http://www.quayhousehayle.co.uk/restaurant/sample-lunch-menu/
Other than that the Hotel only does a Carvery Sunday Lunch.
 
Lastly the owner has asked that I communicate the final headcount and food details to him no later than  the evening of  Sunday 26th so as to be able to order his requirements up on the Monday before
 
So please Fivers, a fairly rapid decision and response on this one please. With a headcount on Carveries and or Veggie option(s) as well - Time is unfortunately a little short
 
If anyone else would care to organise a short afternoon run starting there and perhaps running along the far-famed B3306 to an afternoon T then please let us know. We’re unsure of anywhere that far west that might cope with a gaggle of us?  West Cornwall Fivers???? Pauline & Steve Switzer
