Hello napp .... and a welcome from me too.

 

Some nice machinery there, you have had some very nice looking cars.

 

That's 2 members in the area, and Paul knowing the area too ….sounds like a run to outing when this virus is sorted as I too have relatives not too far away in Cheltenham (near to the air balloon pub) .

 

Have fun and stay safe.

Hi ..

Yes the view is stunning, the food at the air balloon used to be very good indeed .... but to be honest i have not been there for ages.

 

Let us all hope this global situation is sorted soon so we can all get out again.

 

Take care

I've driven past the Air Balloon so many times but never actually stopped.  It does look like a good place for a meet, when they're back on.

Sounds like a plan Paul ...

 

I am supposed to meeting up with a friend near to Oxford, not sure when yet …. but I could make a weekend of it ;) 

 

If you do go that way be careful of the M40 corridor as the last time I went the police were out in blue scoobies !!! and i think they have them on the M5.

lets just hope things move along quick and get sorted out , TBH I think this is not going to blow over that quick. insurance runs out on the Z next month and I don't think it will be much less even though none of us will be able to clock up many miles ,

Yep, I've been in the AIr Balloon several times. Food's always been OK. Sadly it is due to be demolished to make way for the improvements on the A417. To be fair, they are needed way more than the pub as traffic up there in the morning and afternoon is horrendous.

Yes a very busy road indeed, it always has been .... so i suppose it will be a god send.

 

Anyway i will be that was at some point as i have a cousin who lives at the bottom of the hill in Charlton Kings near to the Clock and one has a farm at Driffield.

 

See you soon.
