Dear Members and Guests,

Our first meeting of the 2019/20 session will be held at the Plough at Eaves on Monday 2 September 2019 with Dinner at 1945 for 2000 and our speakers will be from Schmitz Cargo Bull Trailers and products.

As some of you may be aware this will be our last meeting at the Plough at Eaves as our good friend and host, Mark Bond, is terminating his tenancy with the Brewery with effect from the end of September 2019.
Mark will explain more at the meeting but he is moving his catering operation to Ashton and Lea Golf Club, Tudor Ave. (off the A583 Blackpool Road), Preston, PR4 0XA. The Golf Club are keen to welcome Mark's "regulars" and the facilities at Ashton and Lea can only be described as excellent and perfect for our Monthly meetings. Furthermore Mark is offering us our usual menu at the same price.

Travel times to the new venue should not significantly affect Members and for those who don't know the location of the Golf Club, it is short distance after leaving the Preston bound lane of the A583, Blackpool Road at Ashton Preston. Take Tudor Ave and at the sharp left hand bend turn right into the lane ahead that leads to the Golf Club car park.

You will note that our 7 October Meeting will be our first at Ashton and Lea golf Club and Mark assures us that he will provide his usual high standard of food and service in what I am sure you will agree are excellent surroundings.

With regard to the future of the Plough, Mark tells us that currently there has been no other interest in taking on the tenancy and we know from the work we did when Ye Horns Inn closed that there are no other suitable premises in the area to accommodate our requirements. We are therefore fortunate that Mark has made arrangements for a seamless transfer of our meetings to his new catering base.

Please contact John Taylor for any further Information
