VISIT TO MILESTONES MUSEUM, BASINGSTOKE - Sunday 16 November 2003

Thirty-one cars and seventy-seven members and guests enjoyed the marvellous November sunshine to visit this new Section event. Winner of Museum of the Year in 2001, we were greatly suprised to see how empty it was. The Museum is a must. The level of accuracy and detail in the buildings and exhibits is really something to see.

True to quizmaster form, I compiled a little observation questionnaire for every attendee to fill out as they went round. First prize of a replica antique Victorian glass vase went to Anne Steel. Second prize of a Gentleman's leather bound shoeshine kit went to Michael Barnes. Third and fourth prizes of the new Shire publication 'The Rolls-Royce' went to Sally Lees and Peter Parkinson.

Cars ranged from Chess and Karen Ferrier's 40/50hp limousine to our Chairman's Bentley Arnage. There was an excellent cafeteria facility which all present enjoyed and 'The Sunday Roast' was better than at some pub meets.
