Wales Weekend - 22nd to 24th March 2019


Twelve intrepid (or should that be crazy/mad?) members headed off into deepest darkest Wales ... well ... all right, Betws-y-Coed, for a weekend to rival the good old Wales Weekends of those days when we were actually still in Table!


It goes without saying a good, if tiring, time was had by all and there was still plenty of time to spend recounting our various exploits in the bar afterwards.

Bletchley Park Visit - Thursday 21st March 2019


Didn't we have a lovely day the day we went to ... Bletchley Park! Several of us, including some partners, had a great day out visiting Bletchley Park.


A thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking day out in good company.

World94 Trip to India - February 2019


Thirteen members of Shirley 494 Clubs went to the World94 tour of India in Feb2019. World 94 is made up of 9 countries all with the number 94 and each year one country hosts the others.


This year was hosted by Madras Round Table94 and 20 of them flew over to Goa to meet us at the fantastic 5* Leela Hotel where we had cocktails, hippy parties and beach time.

Purity Brewery Visit - Thursday 15th November


Colin and the rest of the crew (more pictures anyone??) spent an enjoyable evening sampling the brews from the Purity Brewery, after the obligatory tour (of course!).

Needless to say there were few volunteers to drive that night!

International Trip to Brussels - 20th to 23rd September 2018


Twelve of us went on the Eurostar on the Thursday morning from St Pancras to Brussels, Waterloo and Ghent. It was tinged with sadness at the start because our Chairman Barry was delayed because he went to Sue Strutt’s funeral on the Friday.

In Brussels we met up with Greg Fanning, who was already there for his work.


Prestige Car Garage visit and drive - 19th July 2018


Twelve of Shirley's petrol-heads went to the Prestige Garage in Bromsgrove, and even got to drive one or two of the rollers!


4 Clubs Camping Weekend - 6th, 7th, 8th July 2018

Our joint camping weekend saw 5 couples enjoy the sunshine - and England quarter final - near Wem!

National Classic Car Rally

Several of our own petrol heads went off to Cardiff for a weekend of classic cars and seeing the hills, valleys, and some of the sights on offer!

There was the usual wide variety of cars and we met up once again with ex Shirley Late Knight Colin Turton - in his lovely 'E' Type Jag - and of course many others who have now become good friends of ours!

Steam Railway Gala Day


Several of us, along with some of our partners, headed off for a day out on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway. The weather was very overcast and damp to begin the day, but gradually cleared to sunshine later on.
