Kent Village Mini-Cruise Sunday 8th September 2013

I'm looking to do mini-cruise, not a lot of miles, 40ish. We meet at Tesco Pembury TN2 4NE at 10.30 a.m. and leave at 11 a.m. So you can still have a Sunday lay-in. :) We will be going through many Kent villages and at finishing at Headcorn Aerodrome where we can have lunch/picnic, depending on the weather. At the Aerodrome there is a lot to see, light planes taking off and landing on a regular basis, parachutists, you can also book a short flight. There is also a museum and a café. http://www.headcornaerodrome.co.uk/

If it is too chilly for a picnic, I have a quirky tea room in mind for lunch, only 2 miles away. http://bloomsburysbiddenden.com/

This cruise will only take place if there is no rain forecast. If the forecast is not good, the cruise will be run at a later date, so it will be a top down cruise. :drive :drive :drive

This is the proposed route. https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid= ... 8,0.824661

Anyone wish to join us.

Ragtop ............. Ron & Gail
Burrie .............. Dave & Sue
Alan W ............. Alan & Kay
BrianBZ1 ........... Brian & Sue
Exocet...............Ian & Debbie

Good to have Dave & Sue on another cruise. Also looking forward to meeting Alan and Brian & Sue on this mini-cruise. :drive :drive :drive

It will be the first time we would have had a Z1 on our cruise so that will be really good. :D

Hi Ian, I had just clicked on the forum to give a weather update and saw your post. Yes the weather looks good for tomorrow with plenty of sun and light winds, just a possible shower around noon.

I will keep an eye on the forecast and unless it changes drastically the cruise is on. I will post on here if the cruise is off tonight.

Not sure if it will be warm enough for a picnic so we have decided to get a meal deal from Tesco Pembury if it turns out it is warm enough. If not warm enough we will go the café in Biddenden.

Our first cruise and big thanks to Ron for organising it.

A nice bunch and lots of positive feedback by the looks of it.

And a lovely selection of cars to boot!
