BRIGHTON CENTRE (SEXMOG) – NOTES FOR MISCELLANY February 2019

By the time you read this it will all sound like a long time ago, but hopefully our Christmas lunch at the Cricketers will remain in peoples memory a little longer.  Thirty seven members travelled to this fine old pub on a sunny winters day and enjoyed a splendid seasonal lunch including crackers and plenty of good cheer.  Meanwhile other customers enjoyed the spectacle of the seven Morgans parked outside.  It has been our custom for many years to contribute to charity some of the money we would have spent sending each other Christmas cards.  This year we collected £135 which we have donated to Clic Sargent.

Not as well known as Elsted but the Stag at Balls Cross also hosts a gathering of Classic Cars on New Years Day.  This year, with excellent weather, produced a splendidly diverse turnout which I’m pleased to say included three Morgans.

In February our regular Sunday lunch is combined with our BGM.  The venue is the Jack and Jill at Clayton which needs no introduction as we have been there many times in the past.

In March we are making a return visit to The Greyhound at Cocking.  Visiting for the first time last year we were very well looked after with scrumptious food in period surroundings.

BRIGHTON CENTRE (SEXMOG) – NOTES FOR MISCELLANY January 2019

A very happy, prosperous, healthy and peaceful New Year to all our members.

The annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run is always an occasion to look forward to and this year dawned bright, dry and sunny albeit a little chilly. Attendance at the Jolly Tanners was down on previous years although those present enjoyed another spectacular display of veteran machinery. The recharging point at the end of the green might have been considered a modern addition but it in fact was there to service the few electric powered vehicles taking part in the run.

This month (January) our regular Sunday lunch will be at The Wheel in Burwash Common.  Always a favourite with members we hope for a good turnout to this,our first event of the New Year.

In February we will be at The Jack and Jill in Clayton. This is a combined lunch and BGM at which we elect a new Centre Secretary and Social Secretaries. For this to take place we need candidates and invite anyone interested to contact either Paul or ourselves.

Report for the December 2018 edition of Miscellany

With the advent of winter our calendar of events dwindles and consequently there is less to write about.

Sunday lunch in October took place at the Crown Inn in Horsted Keynes, a pub we visited for the first time last year.  Well supported, with 35 members present and 8 Morgans in the car park outside, we enjoyed an excellent meal in good company.

In December we make a return to the Cricketers in Duncton for our Christmas lunch.  This fine old village inn always extends a very warm welcome and we have enjoyed some excellent meals here in the past.  We will have a private room suitably decorated to put us in the Christmas spirit.  As usual members will have the opportunity to make a donation to charity in lieu of exchanging Christmas cards.

Our first event in the new year will be Sunday lunch at the Wheel Inn at Burwash Common.  This will be followed in February by a combined lunch and BGM at the Jack and Jill.  More on this later but please give consideration to Pauls communication some weeks ago when he asked for members to put their names forward to replace the centre secretary and the social secretaries.

All it remains now is for us to wish all our members a very happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
