12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Haywards Heath Golf Club, Lindfield West Sussex

This year our Annual Spring Lunch, which is slightly later than usual due to other clashing events, will be held on Sunday June 9th . By then, the weather should be better suited for open top Morgan motoring, so we look forward to a good display of cars in the dedicated car park at Haywards Heath Golf Club, our venue. The meeting time is 12 noon for a get-together and chat, with lunch at 1pm. The address is High Beech Lane, Haywards Heath, RH16 1SL.

The dress code is smart casual (no shorts or denim), although interesting waistcoats are always welcome.

We will be treated to a welcome drink on arrival followed by a three course lunch with coffee or tea to finish, all for £35 per person, to include a tip.  You will find a copy of the menu attached, together with a booking form which also gives details for payment.

As usual, we will be holding our charity raffle which this year is supporting the Alzheimer’s Society in recognition of the recent death of Stuart Williamson and any suitable prize donations will be welcomed. Please make contact with Trudy Jacobs on trudie.a.jacobs@gmail.com

This year, we also plan to hold a Bring and Buy sale for your unwanted Morgan related items. Please let Jeff Deere know whether you intend to bring any items and approximate size at jeffrey_deere@hotmail.co.uk. It is suggested that a donation of 10% of all sale monies be made to club funds. There will also be a separate table for any home produce / or hobby crafts that members might like to sell, under the same arrangements.

We would like to get an idea of numbers, so it would be helpful if booking forms could be returned as soon as possible, with a deadline of May 12th, by  which time payment should be made and when any cheques need to be presented.

If you have any questions or problems with opening the documents etc. please contact us on pamandbobcare@btinternet.com or 07711624919.  Our postal address is 18 Maple Close Haywards Heath West Sussex RN16 3RN.

Pevensey Castle, Westham West Sussex
A visit has been arranged to Pevensey Castle on Wednesday, 17th July.  This will be followed by a lunch at the Smugglers Restaurant which is but a short walking distance away.  Details are as below:
ARRIVAL  10.15 to 10.30 am  17th July
Park at the Smugglers Restaurant, High Street, Pevensey BN24 5LF where there is a reasonable sized car park.     Coffee may be available.
PEVENSEY CASTLE   11 am
The castle is a walk of about 5/10 minutes away up the High Street.
A guided tour around the Castle has been arranged from 11 am lasting for about 1/1½ hours.  The Castle is managed  by English Heritage with free entry to members, otherwise there is a charge of £8.07 per person or £6.88 for those claiming concessions.
HISTORY
Pevensey Castle dates back over 16 centuries beginning as a large Roman fort and is said to be the landing place for William the Conqueror. At that time it was a coastal site (now 5 miles inland) and in the following centuries a Norman castle, keep and gatehouse were built in one corner of the fort with later additions in 1250.  The Castle was strengthened against the Spanish Armada in 1588.
Pevensey itself, being a coastal port, became a member of the prestigious Cinque Ports system with a Royal Charter granted by King John in 1207.
LUNCH  1pm
Lunch is booked in a separate room at the Smugglers for 1pm.  A fixed price menu with 3 courses for £15 has been agreed.  A copy of the menu is attached.
AFTER LUNCH
Other local attractions that could be visited on foot are the small Pevensey Court House/Museum with the Gaol beneath,  both of which are about 50 yds away from the restaurant.  There is also St Nicolas Church which opened its doors in 1216, a fine example of early English architecture and Grade 1 Listed.  It is just a short distance off the High Street.
BOOKING  by 10th July
I will need to know, please, numbers attending the Castle and also the Restaurant before 10th July.  Both sites want me to confirm details to fix final arrangements.  I have paid a deposit.
