Happy New Year to all, and let's hope now we finally have a new Government that our country can function again. Remember that if you travel to Europe (includes Ireland) after 31st January 2020 you may need additional paperwork, a Green Card for insurance and possibly an International Driving License.
The DVLA website will provide the info needed and also remember health insurance, your EU card may no longer provide support, please check first.
January's Monthly Meeting at Newnham as usual, is on Wednesday 22nd January at 19:30 and includes a talk about the restoration of the mainline steam locomotive Canadian Pacific that once plied the tracks through our area on its way hauling express trains. (35005 or 21C5 for afficionados)
